Progress is continuing at the former House of Fraser redevelopment in central Exeter. The former department store is currently undergoing a soft strip to allow the team to finalise the design of the new hotel. The opening is being targeted for Christmas 2021 – the rooftop bar overlooking the cathedral is certainly going to be a good place to host an office party!
Tier 1 has broken ground! Forming one part of a larger development and phasing, Stowford Mill is a landmark development of new homes and commercial spaces on behalf of Stowford Mill Developments Ltd.

We complete projects big and small and are pleased to obtain planning for this little scheme of 3 detached homes in Exmouth. Whilst this looks like a simple project there were a number of challenges to overcome. These 3 homes will replace a single bungalow that occupied the site.
Against the backdrop of the current world situation, some positive news as our proposed student accommodation scheme at Blackboy Road, Exeter was approved on Monday evening. Despite a heart in mouth moment when the meeting was briefly suspended for an urgent briefing to councillors, the scheme for 71 units was finally approved following a protracted planning process. This is the first student accommodation scheme in Exeter to be approved in 18 months and is testament to our commitment to work with the planning department. Members were pleased that their previous comments had been addressed and that the developer had listened and adapted the scheme. It is hoped that regeneration of this abandoned site may help kickstart some wider improvements to the area.
