The starting gun has been fired on the creation of a controversial new town in Devon - if all goes well people will be moving in next year.
5,000 new homes are being built at Sherford in south Devon - but is it enough to tackle the shortage of affordable homes?
At least 280 workers are being sought to create a new town near Plymouth.
As the Government announces £32 million to get Sherford New Town started, the Housing Minister Mark Prisk says he wants it to be a real community.
More details will be revealed today about a new town to be built in Devon.
Part of the proposed Sherford development lies within Plymouth and the rest within the South Hams.
When finished in 2021 it will have 5,500 homes.
