The Town Council supports a flexible and imaginative approach to the use of all retail areas and not just upper floors. In appropriate cases mixed use including residential development in the Town Centre should be encouraged.

Strong objection is raised to Policy DM69, on behalf of Hutton Garden Centre. There is no policy justification to warrant seeking to artificially limit the amount of floorspace at a garden centre or shop in the countryside to selling the majority of goods to produce grown on site or made within 30 miles.

5) Trends in retail and the advance of new technology Whilst I appreciate it is not possible to predict with great confidence how consumer activity will change over the course of the next 13 years there are certainly strong indicators which point to changing behaviours and expectations.

Towns like Totnes have d
