The Milbury Farm masterplan consisted of 296 new homes and commercial premises on a greenfield site in the dormitory village of Exminster, near Exeter.
The site has views across the Exe Estuary and has a visual connection with the historic hospital around which the village grew. A large area has been allocated as public open space. LHC’s masterplan responded to these opportunities ensuring that many homes enjoy long views.
