Plans for ‘new neighbourhood’ on the outskirts of Barnstaple

First look at Larkbear proposals at community meeting later this month.

THERE is expected to be standing room only at an ‘introductory’ meeting being held to outline plans for 800 new homes on the outskirts of Barnstaple later this month.

The event on Friday, March 30 at Roundswell Community Centre will give local people the chance to comment on emerging proposals for a brand new neighbourhood at Larkbear.

Developer Persimmon Homes is expected to submit an outline application for the ‘green’ site later this year.

The meeting, being chaired by North Devon Councillor Des Brailey, starts at 7.45pm.
