The Waterfront - Yelland Quay

History

The Waterfront, Yelland Quay is located on the Taw Torridge Estuary in Barnstaple, North Devon.

This 30 hectare, derelict coal-fired power station site has been allocated in the North Devon Local Plan 2011 – 2031 as a mixed-use, residential/commercial brownfield regeneration project adjoining the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and the SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest).

In the previous local plan, the site was allocated for large scale commercial space. It was concluded at the local plan examination that this was not viable and a more comprehensive mixed-use proposal should be considered.
