Over the period to 2031, the Local Plan will enable growth of high quality development supported by necessary infrastructure to meet the needs of Instow. The spatial vision for Instow will be delivered through:
(a) provision of a minimum of 38 new dwellings to meet the range of housing need in the local community. The supply of housing will be delivered through extant planning consents and the allocation of three sites totalling 20 dwellings and two non-strategic housing sites;
(b) maintaining the character of the village by appropriately designed and located development;
(c) support for the retention of village facilities and services to meet the needs of the local community and visitors to the area;
(d) capitalise on enhanced levels of assistance offered by the Assisted Areas status;
(e) provision of a children’s play area to serve the village and retention of existing recreation and sports facilities; and
(f) improved connectivity to Barnstaple through traffic management measures.
