Planning permission has been achieved for Exmouth Junction, which proposes the construction of 400 new residential dwellings and a 65-unit senior living with care facility.
The redevelopment of Exmouth Junction, a former Network Rail site on Prince Charles Road in Exeter, will provide 465 new residences by transforming 15 acres of redundant storage land.
This important site has been underutilised as a former railway interchange site for the last three decades.
Our vision is to create a vibrant community of starter homes, family houses, affordable housing and apartments to rent and buy within an urban parkland setting. Delivering over 400 residential units and a new 65-unit retirement facility, the project will deliver much needed housing close to both the city centre and the university. The scheme includes one, two and three bedroom apartments and four bedroom townhouses, targeted at young professionals, first time buyers, downsizers and families.
The project will involve the creation of a new neighbourhood which fits with the existing townscape, that integrates high-quality green spaces that people will want to use. A generous amount of new public realm and open green space have also been proposed, with the inclusion of informal walking and cycling routes and the refurbishment of the locally listed water tower. Working with the Council’s aspirations for the City we will reduce car dominance by encouraging sustainable trips through walking and cycling, as well as the integration of car sharing schemes.
