Cranbrook: plans to vastly extend town to be published soon

Just a coincidence that this is announced just after Exeter City Council refuses the first of four large retail development applications close by …..

“Expansion plans for Cranbrook are set to be revealed by the end of the year, revealing proposals to increase the number of households to nearly 8,000 over the next 15 years.

The first houses in the new town were built in 2012 and there are currently 1,700 households living there.

Alongside the residential part of the development, further details are expected for the town centre, to be built on land next to the Cranberry Farm pub.

The proposals include 13 retail units, a town hall with a library and auditorium, a health and well-being centre and a leisure centre.

The Local Plan anticipates Cranbrook will have 7,850 new homes by 2031, equating to a population of about 20,000 people.”
