Update on Clifton Hill development

By April 23, 2020January 26th, 2021Member News & Updates

In February, we wrote to you on behalf of Exeter City Living regarding development proposals for a mixed housing development of 44 homes on the former Leisure Centre site at Clifton Hill.

 At the February consultation we said we would hold a further event to present the detailed proposals. In light of the current restrictions on public gatherings, the more detailed proposals will be made available to view on the project website from Friday 24 April: www.cliftonhilldevelopment.co.uk

 The website information will include a set of exhibition boards, an accompanying presentation and a set of Frequently Asked Questions. In addition to the proposed site layout, housing designs and updates on site access, the green street, landscaping and ecology, you will find responses to the queries and issues raised during the February consultation.

 On Friday 17 April the project team hosted an online meeting to present the proposals to local ward councillors and community representatives. Councillors Jemima Moore and Richard Branston and four representatives from Newtown Community Association joined the meeting. Owing to commitments related to Covid-19,​ Councillor Matthew Vizard and Jayne Leaver, Newtown Community Builder, both sent their apologies.

 The meeting comprised a presentation by the project team as well as a live Q&A session which was recorded. We will also be adding the Q&A recordings to the website.

 A postcard is being delivered to addresses in the local neighbourhood this week to advise residents how to access the updated proposals online. This includes our contact details for any resident who requires a printed copy of the information. A copy of the postcard is attached. We would be grateful if you could share this information with your network.

 From Friday 24 April, please visit the website to view the proposals. We aim to submit the planning application at the end of May and this will then be available on the Council’s planning portal.  You will have a further opportunity to comment as part of the statutory planning process.
