SALES NEWS: More expansion for Exeter as city attracts more jobs and residents
A further expansion of Cranbrook new town has been agreed, with planners giving the go-ahead because of high demand from newcomers to live in or near to Exeter. The proposal is for another 180 new homes with planners saying:
- Exeter is the most sought-after Devon location for people to live;
- the city’s population grew almost 2% in 2016-17;
- Cranbrook will ultimately have 6,550 homes by 2027.
Cranbrook is five miles north east of the centre of Exeter and has a new railway station – one of a number recently opened or proposed to cater for the increased popularity of the city as a place to work and live.
