Leigh Rix from Clinton Devon Estates and Noel Stanton of developer Taylor Wimpey Exeter have made the first cut in the turf on the Plumb Park site, in Exmouth, earmarked for 350 homes.

A turf cutting ceremony has marked the start of work at a 264-home development in Exmouth.

Cutting the first turf at the 14-acre Plumb Park site, on land near Buckingham Close, were head of property and land for Clinton Devon Estates and Noel Stanton of developer Taylor Wimpey Exeter.

The Littleham site has been earmarked for 350 homes in total, with planning permission granted to build 264 homes earlier this year.

Among those homes will be a mix of two, three and four-bedroom houses which will be marketed summer 2018. A quarter of the approved site will be affordable homes.

Leigh Rix said: “For well over five years we have been working with specialist master planners and architects to produce a development that will not only fulfil the current and future housing need in Exmouth but will also provide a prestigious addition to the town.”
