Exeter and East Devon Growth Point

The Exeter and East Devon Growth Point is a dynamic public/private sector partnership.  It was formed in 2008 with the aim of delivering a major growth programme worth more than £2 billion.

Covering the whole of Exeter and parts of the administrative areas of East Devon District Council, Devon County Council and Teignbridge District Council, the programme is on track to deliver around 25,000 new homes and over 25,000 jobs in the period up to 2026.

This initiative is bringing a wealth of business and employment developments to the area as well as improved infrastructure. The lists below comprise projects that have been completed recently or are in the planning or construction stage. 

 Business / Employment Developments
 Exeter Science Park – phase 1 
 Flybe Training Academy and Hilton Hotel
 Exeter City Centre Redevelopment 
 Exeter Science Park – Phases 2 & 3 
 Matford Green Business Park 
 Skypark Business Park 
 Low Carbon Infrastructure 
 EFW Plant Marsh Barton

Transport Infrastructure

The first tenants for the Exeter Science Park Centre (one of the first key buildings) have moved into this innovative and flexible space. Once completed, the Science Park will become an important hub of local scientific, technological, engineering and medicine-based businesses.

Exeter International Airport is developing its regional and international links. As the home of Flybe, it has a major new training facility and growing engineering and maintenance operation.

New communities and mixed used residential areas are obviously strategic to the growth programme. The new town of Cranbrook is now under construction with the first phase completed. This town was set up to be a sustainable community and already incorporates a school, a community centre, a pharmacy and employment space.
