Known as the Southern Expansion, the proposed new zone would comprise up to 1,200 residential dwellings.

In addition there would be a primary school, residential care home, employment facilities up to 35,000 sq metres, petrol filling station and associated retail facilities, sports and recreation facilities (including all-weather playing surface), ‘green infrastructure’ (including open space and suitable alternative natural greenspace), community uses and gypsy and/or traveller pitches.

The Southern Expansion area – to the south of Cranbrook and north of Treasbeare Farm – comprises two applications.

Application A is approximately 70 hectares. Cranbrook South is bordered to the north by the London Road, and the Rockbeare Stream, with the existing residential development of Cranbrook and the country park beyond. To the south and west, the southern expansion area is bordered by agricultural fields, Exeter Airport and Skypark, and to the east by agricultural fields.

Application B – an additional Sport Hub Land – comprises approximately 7.5 hectares. It is located to the south-west of the proposed southern expansion area and ‘provides formal pitch provision to meet the needs of wider expansion proposals’.

Plans for the expansion area were prepared by David Lock Associates with FCPR Environment and Design, and have been put forward by Hallam Land Management Ltd and Taylor Wimpey UK Ltd.

They are being considered by East Devon District Council’s planning department.
