Massive expansion plans with thousands of new homes for the city

A development of 1,300 new homes has been revealed for East Cullompton as part of the town’s extensive expansion plans. A total of 2,600 homes will be delivered in the area, which wraps around the Culm Garden Village project – which alone will provide up to 5,000 new homes.

Land off the A373 Honiton road is allocated for up to 1,300 new homes in the local plan. Now those plans are coming closer, as the Danescroft developers have acquired a significant portion of the land.



No formal planning application for the site has yet been submitted. But Cullompton councilors recently attended a presentation by developers outlining their vision for the site – and how it will fit into the Culm Garden Village project, as well as the relief road needed to direct traffic away from the town centre.

The draft master plan sets out a vision around the concept of ‘planet, people, place’ and sets out how East Cullompton should be developed to meet this vision through a number of themes including activity, landscape, mobility , creation of places and delivery. The site has the potential to deliver 1,750 new homes over the plan period and at least 850 new homes after 2033, as well as community facilities, commercial space and supporting infrastructure such as transport improvements, parks and open spaces. In time, East Cullompton could become part of a larger Culm Garden Village, which is one of several areas granted Garden Village status by the government.

Addressing Cullompton City Council at the March full council meeting, Dan Angell of TFA, a property consultancy, explained: “A significant amount of work has been undertaken by the Danescroft team and various consultants in all technical disciplines. We are working with Mid Devon District Council on a variety of issues including technical issues and discussions on major infrastructure, such as the Town Center Relief Road and Junction 28 of the M5, as well as participating in the process Supplementary Planning Document (SPD). to refine our projects. Community consultation will inform further revisions, especially as we work with close neighbors and others with local knowledge and ideas.

He added: “Proposals developed by the team will be for 1,300 new homes to kick off delivery of the allowance. The local center will be concentrated on Honiton Road and Newlands Park, including north of Honiton Road. The primary school northwest of Honiton Road is easily accessible from within the site or from Honiton Road.
