Regeneration of Haven Banks Retail Park

August 2022: We have now submitted our planning application to Exeter City Council for the regeneration of Haven Banks Retail Park.

We have updated this consultation website to provide key information about our planning application and explain how you can find out more about our plans.

Coplan Estates and Welbeck CP are bringing forward plans for the regeneration of the Haven Banks retail park at Water Lane and Haven Road, to the south of Exeter city centre.

The proposals would deliver a sustainable new neighbourhood with high-quality homes, new retail and leisure facilities, and public and green space which complement and benefit the wider Haven Banks area.

Consulting the local community

In May 2022, we held a two-week public consultation on our plans for Haven Banks retail park, including two public drop-in events. This enabled us to gather and consider feedback before we finalised the proposed masterplan and submitted our planning application to Exeter City Council.

You can read more about our consultation with the local community, the feedback we received and the design changes we implemented on the ‘Have Your Say’ page of this website.

Planning application

On 1 August 2022, we submitted the planning application to Exeter City Council. It was validated in early September, and you can now view our full planning application by searching for the reference 22/1145/FUL on Exeter City Council’s planning portal. The Council is holding its consultation on our plans which is now open for comments.
