New Town 'Sherford' Approved by Local Councils
Posted on: 11/08/2015

Planning proposals for a new town west of Plymouth has recently been approved by South Hams District Council and Plymouth City Council.

The proposals were put forward by WYG for Linden Homes and detail a billion pound development that will see the construction of a brand new town inclusive of 5,500 new homes, a library, four schools, business parks, community centres, town hall and parklands.

These plans are long awaited by many in the local area due to a lack of housing in recent years- however as of yet approval only rests for 164 homes included in the initial phase.

Principal Planner at WYG, Catherine Knee said: “We are extremely excited to be part of the Sherford development which has been in the planning stages for the last 20 years. The brand new community will support government plans for tackling the current housing crisis across the UK.”

The approval coincides with the establishment of a brand new Sherford Consortium, a partnership of three building firms who will hold shared responsibility for the creation of the town- Bovis Homes, Linden Homes and Taylor Wimpey.
