Culm chosen as one of the Government’s 14 new garden villages
The site is located to the east of the existing settlement adjacent to junction 28 of the M5, which itself is approximately 20 kilometres north-east of Exeter.
Working with multiple land owners whose land is primarily used for farming, Lightwood have successfully created a consortium and control in excess of 300 acres to assist the local authority in delivering their vision. The location is likely to see development of over 5,000 new homes within a sustainable settlement.
Lightwood are working very closely with both the local authority and local community and have the support of the local Neighbourhood Planning Group who are keen to see this delivered. Such large scale development enables significant improvements to local infrastructure, transport and community facilities including; new primary and secondary schools, swimming pool, civic space, countryside park, significant junction improvement to junction 28, community open space and children’s play facilities.
Cullompton provides an exciting opportunity for Lightwood to be involved in the shaping of future communities.
