Work on the projects is expected to begin in the next three months.

Councillor Dick Jones, Lead Member for Community and Leisure, said: "North Devon Council aims to deliver projects within the local community which will be of benefit and improve the quality of life of residents.

"The open space contributions help the council provide things to the community beyond the original development and give communities exactly what they want."

These projects mark the continuation of a wider three-year action plan by North Devon Council to deliver what local communities need using financial contributions from developers.
