Cranbrook New Town, Devon NHS ‘Healthy New Towns’

The vision for Cranbrook New Town is to create a self-sufficient, low carbon new community in close proximity to skilled employment opportunities, encouraging people to use sustainable modes of transport. The aim is to build Cranbrook to the highest code for sustainable homes and by doing so become a trail blazer for low carbon mass open market housing developments.

The early phases of Cranbrook have been built with Cranbrook New Town ultimately delivering some 8,000 new homes as part of the Exeter & East Devon Growth Point.
