Taylor Wimpey has started work on a community of new homes and green spaces in Cullompton. 

Culm Valley Park, off Siskin Chase, will comprise of 105 homes, 30 of which will be provided for rent through the local authority. The development will include a new nature trail park, with around 40% of the total site set aside as green space for the residents of Cullompton to enjoy. The existing Siskin Chase play area will be extended within the site to create more space for new and existing residents to enjoy.

Culm Valley Park will reflect Taylor Wimpey’s commitment to sustainable developments, including provision for electric vehicle charging points to each house and an increase in biodiversity through new plant species, hibernaculum (winter wildlife shelters), bat/bird boxes and new allotments. 

Permanent vehicle access to the new development will be via Siskin Chase, with pedestrian access points from Siskin Chase and Colebrooke Lane. However, following consultation with local residents and Cullompton Town Council, construction traffic is using Colebrooke Lane to keep disruption to a minimum.

Richard Harrison, Land and Planning Director for Taylor Wimpey Exeter, said: “We’re thrilled to have started work on Culm Valley Park and we are grateful to local residents for their feedback, which has helped to shape our design. We hope that this will be a development for the whole Cullompton community to be proud of.

“Not only are we delivering a range of housing to meet the local need, we are also creating new public open spaces with high quality play areas and a range of measures designed to enhance biodiversity in the area.”
