Policy 5 
Protecting and Enhancing Green Infrastructure

1. Development proposals should protect and where applicable enhance existing green infrastructure assets.

2. Green infrastructure enhancements should be in accordance with Local Plan Policy EN3. In particular development should;

a) safeguard the route of the dismantled railway; and

b) protect, enhance and where possible expand areas of natural green space and create linkages to allow movement of species.

3. Development that improves access to, and provides a footpath along, the River Devon corridor for walkers and cyclists will be supported.
