Plans unveiled to create new neighbourhood in Plymouth

    Sutton Harbour Group want to create a new residential quarter directly linked to the waterfront

    A new neighbourhood could be created at Sutton Road East.

    Waterfront regeneration specialist and real estate developer Sutton Harbour Group (SHG) plc has unveiled plans for the land to the east of Sutton Harbour.

    They are currently preparing proposals to redevelop the sites in sequence to deliver a residential-driven mixed-use development.

    This, alongside the group's previously approved £60 million Sugar Quay development, will create 145 full-time jobs during the period of construction of approximately 7.5 continuous years if approved.

    Among the plans is a new residential quarter with a combined construction value of over £50 million.

    It would be created on land between Sutton Road and St John's Bridge, connected by a walkway leading directly to the waterfront and the Sugar Quay development, offering waterside apartments, shops and restaurants.

    The new neighbourhood east of Sutton Road features residential accommodation to be developed in two complexes around a large public square, as well as retail units and car parking facilities.

    This will also include affordable housing and social housing at St John's Bridge, alongside open market apartments.

    The plans for Sugar Quay, previously granted full planning permission in December 2018, will be the subject of a new application, revised to relocate the planned basement car park to facilities included in the development at St John's Bridge.

    The ambitious schemes present a unique opportunity to deliver regeneration to this site, identified by Plymouth City Council as a strategically important location for development.
