A geographically excellent  location with good connectivity to London and other parts of the Uk, a thriving economic centre and regional city, featuring world and Uk leading companies, pioneering in their own fields  and a place where your employees and their families will get the best quality of life.


Exeter and East Devon -Why compromise when you can have it all?



  •   Next to Exeter International Airport
  •   Less than 2 Hours from London by Train
  •   Located at junction 29 of the M5

Perfectly positioned between the Exeter to London Waterloo railway line, and the A30/303 to London, adjacent to the M5, and in close proximity to Exeter International Airport; on edge of Exeter a city of regional significance; the developments of the Exeter and East Devon Growth Point will benefit from excellent connectivity.

Growth Programme:

  •   With a Growth Programme worth £2bn+
  •   Over £90 million in public funding packages 

In the Growth Point growth programme, there are 6 new sustainable developments all with planning permission and key infrastructure works underway, including a £30 million, Combined Heat and Power district heating network. 

Road building and improvement schemes will also be providing access and improved travel routes to the new developments, and creating further opportunities for  additional development.

The planned strategic projects now have the potential to create 26,600 jobs over the next 15 - 20 years.

As part of our vision to build sustainable communities in Exeter and East Devon, the aim is to provide the opportunity for residents living in the area to have access to skilled employment opportunities and training as well as space to start up or expand existing businesses.

The Developments:

There will also be scope throughout the Exeter and East Devon Growth Point to accommodate businesses big and small, from start-ups to major corporations: And businesses from many different sectors including science, technology, maths, retail, construction, green technology, manufacturing, aviation, engineering, and power generation.

All non residential buildings in the growth point will be designed to be eye catching locally distinctive buildings, with low carbon emissions and reduced energy bills for the occupiers.

 Energy Centre   

 All of these developments are benefitting from the dynamic local authority partnership which is driving forward this urban extension.  Working together Exeter City Council, East Devon District Council and Devon County Council have reached out to the private sector to bring investment to the area. 

Now in partnership with companies such as The Met office, E.on, St Modwen, Exeter University, Flybe, Balfour Beatty, Redrow, Hallam Land Management, and Taylor Wimpy, the Exeter and East Devon Growth Point is poised to deliver.

Enterprise Zone

Four of the sites in the Growth Point, SkyPark, Exeter Science Park, Cranbrook Commercial Area and Exeter Airport Business Park Expansion now benefit from being awarded Enterprise Zone status.

The Zone itself provides a range of incentives to attract and support businesses that are setting up or growing, including up to five year business rate reduction funded by Government which could be worth up to £275,000 and simplified planning procedures.

Additional business rates generated from within the Zone will be reinvested locally to further support economic growth.  This will help to improve the future success of the zone and the wider area and will be achieved through the local authorities and key stakeholders working alongside partners such as the Heart of the South West LEP.
