Sherford, South Hams Sherford is the new urban extension to Plymouth, equidistant between Dartmoor and the South Devon Coast, and conceived as a new market town for around 15,000 people.
The developer of Sherford is Redtree, founded by Nicholas Tubbs in 2003.
The design of the community engagement and town was led by the Prince’s Foundation for Building Community and the plan includes a careful balance between 5,500 homes, amenities, work space and green space, including a 280 hectare country park. It is planned to be energy-efficient, socially inclusive, economically sustainable and sensitive to the environment. Its sustainability rating, as independently audited by the Building Research Establishment, is one of the only projects of this size to achieve ‘exemplar’ status.
The masterplan is the result of six years of public consultation, and professional collaboration, and turned initial mistrust and opposition around to create a supportive local community. Sherford not only aims to enhance its beautiful natural setting but also to become a model for town planning in the 21st century.
Sherford takes the best from the past and combines it will the best of contemporary living trends. All amenities in this new town will be possible to access within a ten minute walk improving air quality, sociability and health.
Planning permission granted, first 700 houses under construction, first occupations took place in April 2017.
