Sherford 2019: Progress On The New Community Includes 2.3 Million Bricks...

...500 Homes, 200 Trainees And 255,000 Trees And Plants

New figures have revealed the monumental progress being made in the construction of Sherford, one of the South West’s largest new community developments. Since house construction began in 2016, over 500 homes are currently under construction. In excess of 150 residents live in the vibrant and growing community, and the first primary school is bustling with over 90 pupils.

Emma Colin, Sherford Consortium – the partnership of homebuilders responsible for the new community, Bovis Homes, Linden Homes and Taylor Wimpey – said: “A tremendous amount of work, investment and manpower has gone into bringing the vision of Sherford to life. It is hugely rewarding to see how Sherford is evolving into such an incredible community. So much has been achieved already, despite only being in its first phase of development. With many more milestones in the pipeline in the next year alone, we look forward to this community going from strength to strength.”

Devon County Council Leader John Hart said: "An impressive amount of work is going into the development of the new community of Sherford and it really is progressing well. Aside from the development of homes and infrastructure, we've also seen the opening of some vital community facilities such as the primary school, the skills training centre and the first part of the country park, and the main road linking Sherford to Deep Lane Junction is also currently being built."
Cllr Dan Brown, Ward Member for Wembury and Brixton said: “I simply want to say wow. Every time I drive into Sherford I am amazed at the progress. New homes are being occupied all the time and the community is really starting to grow. It is such an honour to be part of the birth of this fledgling community and I am really looking forward to celebrating future milestones with the residents.”
