Sutton Harbour Holdings has announced plans for a £200M garden suburb in the north of Plymouth, UK.
The new development, named Plym Vale, will create an entirely new city quarter with walkable neighbourhoods connected by communal green spaces, allotments, squares and a semi-pedestrianised boulevard.
It will include a new University Quarter featuring the University of St Mark and St John as its centrepiece, courtyards of student accommodation, and a veterans’ rehabilitation village linked to a new multi-use sports arena and Derriford Hospital.
The project will also include 1,500 new homes including starter-homes and social housing, detached family houses, and supported homes.
Additionally, Plym Vale will involve the construction of health facilities, shops and restaurants, a new primary school, a hotel and a community hall.
Sutton Harbour Holdings’ CEO Jason Schofield said: “Plym Vale is a tremendous opportunity for the city to get behind a vibrant new sustainable community that will create an enduring legacy and make the best possible use of this long redundant site.”
The project is anticipated to result in the creation of 350 construction jobs every year for the next 10 years, and 440 permanent jobs following completion.
