LOCAL pupils are learning about the planning and development process to help shape Barnstaple's future.

As part of a geography project at Pilton Community College, officers from North Devon Council's planning team are working with Year 11 students. Together they are looking at sites across Barnstaple to help plan how the area may grow and look in the future.

The students have been learning about the types of sites that can be developed, what needs to be considered when planning new developments and the consequences of different decisions.
