Over the period to 2031, the Local Plan will enable high quality development supported by necessary infrastructure to meet the needs of Abbotsham. The vision will be delivered through:
(a) provision of a minimum of 23 dwellings, including affordable homes and accommodation to meet the changing needs of the villages ageing population. The supply of housing will be delivered through a single site allocation;
(b) identifying a site for additional housing at the Glebe, within the development boundary;
(c) support for a pedestrian footbridge over the A39 from the settlement to Atlantic Village, along the existing footpath (subject to Land at Winsford Farm, north of Clovelly Road, Bideford being developed subject to Policy BID01);
(d) promoting a footpath and cycleway connecting Bideford to Abbotsham;
(e) renovation of village hall and children’s playground; and
(f) support for the retention of village facilities and services to meet the needs of the local community.
