Major Transport Schemes

Local Pinch Point Fund Bids

Devon County Council’s application for the recently announced Local Pinch Point Fund addresses a range of development projects ranging from rural regeneration projects to major urban extensions that we have been working on with the District Councils and developers. As a result, these schemes have well advanced designs and have been through a considerable option assessment and scrutiny process. Devon covers a large geographic area and we are progressing numerous developments around the County. Consequently our application is for five development projects spread across the County that will secure immediate impacts on growth and can be delivered quickly. The common features of the individual applications are:

  • Unlocking employment development sites
  • Delivering growth in residential developments
  • Well advanced design
  • Agreement with land owners
  • Full support from the District Council
  • Full support from the LEP
  • Positive, cooperative working relationships with developers
  • Low cost and high value schemes
