New residential opportunities for Plymouth
A major housing and infrastructure development is all set to get underway in Plymouth.Ambitious plans to create a new town on the outskirts of Plymouth have been submitted, with up to 5,000 new homes for the area and a range of associated amenities and infrastructure.
The town of Sherford will be created should initial proposals for the area be given the green light by local planners, the Plymouth Herald reports.
With such a major boost to housing, the Sherford New Community Consortium has promised to not only tackle the region's present lack of housing, but the work will also help in the delivery of a new superfast broadband network, as well as educational establishments, roads, utilities and recreational areas for future residents.
Outline planning consent for the project was achieved in November and now planning chiefs are in the process of assessing the development of the first 568 properties that will make up the new town.
The scheme is made up of project founders Red Tree, along with developers Taylor Wimpey, Linden Homes and Bovis Homes.
