Vaughan Road, Exeter

Project Description

Vaughan Road in Whipton Village has been selected for comprehensive development of modern apartments around a communal garden. These new homes are constructed to the highest environmental standards to reduce energy costs, create healthy homes and be climate resilient.

Over 65% of these new homes are ‘affordable’, and 60 homes will be available for social rent and for shared ownership, with priority lettings to local residents. There will be 8 affordable wheelchair-accessible homes within the development too. The remaining 32 homes will be for open market sale.

A large central green space will become the focal point of the scheme. All apartments are designed to enjoy a view into the shared landscaped gardens. The whole development will be designed to Passivhaus standards which means highly sustainable and super low energy.

The first Passivhaus homes for Exeter, built in the heart of the city
