Hyas have been supporting by Mid Devon Council to provide project management, strategic planning, and general critical friend support to progress a large Garden Village of circa 5,000 homes.

Hyas have been acting as project managers on the project on behalf of the Council and are working closely with officers providing support to bring the site effectively through the planning system. The site is partly allocated through the Local Plan, with further growth potential, and a strategic plan is emerging which will set the context for future growth across the wider ‘Greater Exeter’ area.

Our support has extended into considerations relating to funding and delivery, including ongoing liaison with the key landowners, and providing assistance in securing funding via the Housing Infrastructure Fund including viability and deliverability analysis.
