Chairman's Comments

This is the South Molton Market & Coastal Town Initiative’s Strategic Action Plan

The Market and Coastal Town Initiative Steering Group was made up of members from South Molton and the surrounding Parishes following the inaugural meeting in South Molton in July 2001. Since April 2003 the work of the Steering Group has been continued by the Management Board of Molton Area 2000, a Company Limited by Guarantee whose remit is to deliver the regeneration programme for the South Molton area.

As Chairman of both the Market and Coastal Town Initiative Steering Group and Molton Area 2000, I have been privileged to work with so many people, all sharing the common aim of encouraging social and economic regeneration of our market town and its district. Under the banner of the MCTI we have a marvellous opportunity for rural regeneration.

It is important to recognise the hard work of the volunteers who have given their time on the Market and Coastal Town Initiative Steering Group and Molton Area 2000 Management Board as well as those who have been co-opted and freely given their invaluable advice, time and expertise. Thanks to you all. Most members of the group have not been involved in this type of Community Planning before. We have therefore relied on expertise of the District and County Council’s in gathering information and assisting us. Many thanks to them all, especially to Jan Kennedy of Community Development Unit, North Devon District Council. Thanks also to the numerous organisations in the town including the Town Council who have given much support and to the South Molton community who have participated fully in bringing their ideas to the plan.

The future of South Molton looks very positive –

                                From a rich past to a bright future
