“Garden Communities” for Exeter

Exeter has got all sorts of expansion plans:

Liveable Exeter “highlights the property crisis while trying to solve transport challenges”

Exeter: portrait of a city published: “educated, sustainable, unaffordable”

Meanwhile, central government has announced plans for something called ‘garden communities’ – as reported by Daniel Clark:

 

20,000 new homes to be built in Exeter new “garden communities”

No location for where the homes will be built have been agreed, but three councils – Exeter City Council, East Devon Council and Teignbridge District Council – are working together on plans for the development.

An MHCLG spokesman added: “The new scheme in Greater Exeter area announced today will join the 28 existing garden communities the government is currently supporting, which are already delivering new homes today.”

Exeter City Council’s chief executive and growth director Karime Hassan said that he welcomed the announcement and that Exeter’s bold vision to create more than 12,000 new homes in the city over the next 20 years had been given a boost.
