Taylor Wimpey announced as Plumb Park development partner

Taylor Wimpey Exeter will build 264 new homes to a high quality specification, set-out by Clinton Devon Estates and inspired by the Avenues Design Statement.

The new homes at Littleham - 40 percent of which will be designated affordable housing for rent or shared ownership - will be set around 14 acres of parkland, community allotments and orchards and will feature over a mile of Devon banks.

The joint venture contract between Clinton Devon Estates’ development company Littleham 2010 and Taylor Wimpey Exeter was awarded following a rigorous selection process followed by legal agreements to ensure the delivery of Clinton Devon Estates’ vision for “a quality environment and a positive, lasting legacy for Exmouth”.

A reserved matters planning application, detailing the design, layout and specification of the first 264 homes - of a total 350 granted outline planning consent in June 2013 - will be submitted to East Devon District Council over the summer with building work expected to begin later this year and the first homes available in 2016.

John Varley, Estates Director for Clinton Devon Estates said: “Our selection process to secure the very best joint venture partner for Plumb Park has taken the best part of a year. It was imperative that our Trustees, our Board and our professional advisers were wholly confident that our chosen developer could deliver our stringent requirements for a positive, lasting legacy for Exmouth.

“The Avenues Design Statement will inspire the character of the whole of Plumb Park and the 105 affordable homes that this project will deliver for local people will meet the same design credentials.

“Plumb Park is in a highly sustainable location, providing pedestrian, cycle and public transport links to local amenities, the sea front and employment in both the town and at Liverton Business Park.

“We will do out upmost to ensure that the whole community will be proud of this part of Exmouth – now and for many generations to come.”

Andrew Tildesley for Taylor Wimpey Exeter said: “Plumb Park is a prestigious scheme which we are delighted to have won on merit. It will be a bespoke Taylor Wimpey project in terms of the specification, design and materials and we very much look forward to working with Clinton Devon Estates to deliver the first new homes next year”.
