Clinton Devon Estates is calling on Exmouth residents’ views in a bid to shape the future of proposed development, Plumb Park, at Littleham.

Exmouth residents are being asked for their views on the proposed new community at Littleham when the latest round of public consultation takes place on Wednesday, November 21.

Clinton Devon Estates is keen to hear public opinion over its proposal to build 350 homes at Plumb Park at an exhibition being held at the Bidmead Community Centre, from 10am until 9pm.

The estates hopes the public will help shape the future of the area by completing a survey and leaving comments about the proposed development.

John Varley, estates director for Clinton Devon Estates, said: “Clinton Devon Estates have a long standing relationship with Exmouth which is why we are seeking to create a quality environment that will provide a positive legacy for the town.

“This development allows us to exercise responsible stewardship of our land in providing local housing and employment for future generations.”

During the event there will be a series of display panels explaining the proposal and showing the various elements of the idea in more detail.

Staff will be happy to answer any questions and queries the public may have about Clinton Devon Estates’ vision for the Littleham area.

Mr Varley added: “We believe Plumb Park provides an exciting opportunity to develop a real community with a mix of homes to buy and rent. The size of the proposed site means that we can provide a high-quality development with plenty of room for children to play, wildlife to thrive and communities to meet.

“In Plumb Park we are aiming for a development which is seen by other towns as something to aspire to.”

Clinton Devon Estates said the proposal for a 350 home community at Plumb Park, Littleham, would help meet the need for affordable homes for local people.

It would also provide new public space, footpaths and cycle ways, woodlands, a community orchard plus revamped and new community facilities.
