The former Marsh Mills China Clay Drying site contains 30,000sqm of large derelict buildings and hazardous materials. On the back of detailed technical work carried out by Tibbalds CampbellReith JV, Homes England secured detailed planning consent for demolition works and has appointed Cognition to undertake the contract to make the site safe and to clear the way for redevelopment of the site for up to 550 new homes, community facilities and 11.5 hectares of woodland.

LDA Design is leading the planning and masterplanning for redevelopment, including proposals to improve the quality of the woodland which will be used creatively for recreation, habitat improvement and to define the character of the new development.

Paul Britton, Senior Development Manager at Homes England, said: “Coypool Park is our flagship housing project in Plymouth as it redevelops a derelict site and will deliver much needed housing that is enhanced by its woodland setting whilst being only a 15 minute bus ride into the City Centre. I am therefore delighted to be taking this major step in preparing the site.”

Homes England will continue to consult stakeholders and local residents about development proposals over the coming weeks ready for an Outline Planning Application to be submitted in July 2019.

It is really rewarding to be selected on a tender where we can use our demolition and remediation expertise together with experience gained working within various nuclear facilities.

We haven’t worked with Homes England since they were HCA so this is a great win for us. Timing and planning are always key with these projects and so having a specialist team available at the right time really helped our case. We look forward to working with both Tibbalds Campbell Reith and Homes England on this exciting opportunity.”
