Clyst Road, Topsham EX3 See map


This land is the one of the most important residential development opportunities to have been offered for sale in Topsham in decades. This absolutely prime level or gently east sloping approximately 5.57 hectare (13.76 acre) site has frontage on its southern boundary to a current housing development of 170 dwellings called Apsham Grange being undertaken by Taylor Wimpey. Access and service connection rights were reserved from the earlier land sale by the same landowner and the main access road has now been constructed to base course and is available for connection.

The land is located on the northern edge of Topsham some 0.9 miles from the town centre of what is perhaps the best residential district in Exeter. Aside from the ongoing housing development on its southern boundary the site adjoins open fields to the north and east and the Exeter to Exmouth rail line on the western boundary.


Within Exeter (population 129,393 in 2021) but distinctively Topsham would be a good description of this historic estuary port town with its eclectic mix of building styles, famous 17c Dutch style merchant houses, maritime heritage and waterfront setting on the River Exe. Some of the finest houses can be found along the Strand whilst Topsham High Street is home to many specialist shops and boutiques. There are numerous award winning restaurants and pubs in the locality including the nearby Darts Farm winner of the large farm shop of the year 2022.


A grant of outline planning permission was obtained on appeal under reference number APP/Y1110/W/22/3296946 on the 11th October 2022 for a development of up to 100 residential units. A S106 agreement provides for Affordable Housing at a rate of 35% and there are financial contributions required towards the GP Surgery at 584 per dwelling and Exe Estuary Habitat Mitigation at 1,359.51 per affordable dwelling. Exeter City Council are a CIL authority with a chargeable rate of 80 psm (plus indexation) in respect of residential development (excluding social housing).


A full pack of technical information including copies of the planning permission, S106 agreement, planning documentation, utility information and geotechnical report is available from the agents.
