LOCAL people are being given more time to comment on how North Devon may be developed in the future.
A public consultation on North Devon Council and Torridge District Council's draft Core Strategy was due to end on Thursday. But it has now been extended until Monday (March 15) to enable more people to comment on the proposals.
Proposals include 6,000 new homes around Barnstaple, with Larkbear, Whiddon Valley/Westacott and West Yelland identified as potential sites. Other key areas highlighted in the document as potential housing sites are around Killacleave in Ilfracombe and to the north-west and south of South Molton.
Leader of North Devon Council, Cllr Des Brailey, said: "We've held a series of information days across northern Devon over the last six weeks, to allow local people to see the plans and have their say.
