To mark one year since the first brick was laid, developers of a new town in Devon have shared a timelapse video capturing the progress of its construction so far.
Sherford town, in Plymouth and South Hams, is set to be host 5,500 new homes and over 80,000 m² employment and retail space.
Three primary schools and a secondary school are also being built at the site, as well as a variety of community facilities including a town hall, youth centre, health centre, library, theatre, sports centre and a community park.
Not many of us will have the opportunity to witness the development of a new town at close range. Existing towns have an established, hidden infrastructure and it is these preliminary stages which the short video shows. The icing on the cake is that the visual evidence of Sherford, i.e. the houses etc, will be the result of careful design and quality construction.
An application to change the design of Devon's newest town away from the vision of the Prince of Wales has been rejected.Read the full story ›
