SALES NEWS: A new country park set to make Exeter still more desirable
Exeter is famous as a green city with substantial open space, plenty of tree-lined streets, a range of well-maintained parks and easy access to vast areas of Dartmoor.
Now, that reputation is to be helped by the creation of a brand new 18 acre country park.
This will be on the eastern edge of the city close to the M5 and is a ‘planning gain’ in return for new housing. The park is scheduled to be completed in 2018. The developer will also be funding environmental improvement work along the Exe estuary, running from Exeter eastwards, through Topsham and towards Exmouth.
Meanwhile a host of Devon parks have been recognised in the prestigious Green Flag Awards organised by the environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy.
The organisation says Devon’s blend of natural open spaces and well-maintained parks make it “one of the country’s most beautiful and desirable places to live in.”
