NEWS: Leading house builder says Exeter is a prime business location
One of Britain’s most respected house builders, David Wilson Homes, says Exeter is the outstanding location for its construction programme across the south west.
The firm says 200 of its 400 new homes being built across Devon and Cornwall are within four miles of the city centre because the place is so popular for its mix of business, culture, leisure and shopping.
The builder says that with approximately 35,000 people commuting into central areas of the city each day, plus the contrast of a substantial retired population as well, there is strong demand for homes close to or within Exeter.
The Institute of Policy has recently claimed Exeter to be the city with the greatest productivity per employee in the UK.
