The future of Exeter revealed

Stunning images showcase what the city will look like over next 20 years

Exeter City Council’s Chief Executive and Growth Director Karime Hassan has unveiled the vision to create 12,000 new homes in the city over the next two decades.

The vision also includes plans for new schools, work spaces, parks and open space and cultural facilities in a better connected, more ‘liveable’ Exeter.

It features eight transformational projects, including:

* More than 5,500 new homes at Marsh Barton, together with community space and schools sites

* A new ‘green’ bridge crossing over the River Exe and a new cultural destination by the river

* More than 1,000 new homes at Sandy Gate

* Almost 1,000 new homes at East Gate, with an enhanced approach to the city centre from the east, a greater provision for public transport, walking and cycling in Heavitree Road.

* More than 664 new homes at Red Cow village, a work hub at St David’s Square, opening up access to the river from St David’s Station.

Mr Hassan said: “This programme represents nothing less than ambitious and long term renewal of the city’s fabric to meet people’s needs for homes, jobs and services in the 21st century.”
