Following the closure of Clifton Hill Leisure Centre and subsequent Council resolutions regarding the sale of the site, Exeter City Living has had approval of a mixed development of 42 modern houses and apartments on this site at Clifton Hill.

These new homes will be constructed to the highest quality and environmental standards to reduce energy costs and create attractive family homes.

The Journey So Far

In June 2018 Exeter City Council created Exeter City Living as a development company to deliver market sale and affordable new homes for the residents of Exeter. Working alongside the Council Housing Team, Exeter City Living will boost the council’s response to the city’s housing needs, by

•    building and managing more and better homes.

•    helping to reduce pressure on the council’s housing waiting list, and

•    improving the lives of residents by building homes that are low energy, healthy and climate-resilient.
