Newport is a mainly residential area its population being around 5000 although there are plans for potentially 2 large housing developments in the locality which may significantly increase the local resident numbers.We also have a large 24 hour Tesco's on the patch as well as other well known national DIY stores and an industrial estate incorporating motor dealers and privately run companies.

The area has 2 large state schools; Park Community School, which has around 1500 pupils and Newport Junior School, which has around 500 pupils.

Rock Park is a main focal point within Barnstaple. Follwing the successful redevelopment of the childrens play area and the new skate park, the park now has an amzing Bike Track. This has led to more people using the amenities that are currently available.
