The site is strategically located at the gateway to the West Country. Situated on the intersection of the 3 main arterial routes into the West Country; M5/A38 and A30 and A379. Approximately 3 miles south of Exeter City Centre. Exeter is predicted to be the fastest growing city in the UK (Irwin Mitchell - UK City Tracker 2023) and just 900m from the site is Exeter’s city extension of Matford, which comprises approximately 2,500 new homes, a school and various local services. This scheme is well under way with Sovereign Housing, Redrow, Linden and Barratt delivering numerous phases. Closer to the City Centre, the industrial estate at Marsh Barton has been allocated for residential development, placing increasing demand on new modern employment space at West Exe Business Park.
