10. Infrastructure Delivery

New Infrastructure provided in the plan area

The provision of necessary infrastructure is vital to the development and accessibility of the area, we are actively working with Neighbouring Authorities, Devon County Council, Homes England, the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and service providers to secure he necessary infrastructure. A number of the larger Local Plan allocations require key pieces of infrastructure to facilitate their delivery and achieve quality.

We are working with partners to deliver Infrastructure through other means, particularly through bidding for funding for their provision or match funding to secure earlier delivery.

The Infrastructure Delivery Plan (IDP) identifies infrastructure that is needed to support development growth. It also records projects that have been completed, this was last reviewed in February 2020. Recent achievements include completions or significant progress on the following.
