LOCA COUNCILLOR MARKS OPENING OF NEW PUBLIC REALM AREA

Senior Development Manager at St. Modwen, Ian Guy and Council Chairman of Clyst Honiton Parish Council, Councillor Lynne Askew today marked the official opening of the public realm area at St. Modwen’s £210 million Skypark scheme in Exeter.

Named Western Fields Park, the five acre area was developed by St. Modwen to provide a naturally picturesque entrance into the development, which lines the site’s frontage along the Clyst Honiton bypass. 

The new park area includes a tree-lined avenue into the development surrounded by grassland and hedges as well as ornamental plants and shrubbery native to the area.  The Park provides a pictorial and inviting entrance into the Skypark development, as well as recreational space for business occupiers and the local community to enjoy.

Trim Trail exercise stations have also been provided to encourage use by joggers and walkers as well as 16,000 sq ft of woodland area.

On completion, the 110 acre Skypark site, one of the key developments forming part of the Exeter and East Devon Growth Point initiative*, will provide 1.4 million sq ft of warehouse, industrial and office space and deliver up to 6,500 new jobs.
