Land at Seaton Barracks could be transformed into a new heart for Derriford, Plymouth, with shops, cafes and a new school for newly-built homes and existing communities.
Creating a new heart in the north of the city is a key aim in the pre-submission Derriford and Seaton Area Action plan, which will be discussed by Plymouth City Council on Tuesday, January 18.
The plans could lead to up to 3,800 new homes being built, the creation of 6,000 new jobs together with 30,000 square metres of retail floor space as well as community facilities.
The idea is part of a range of proposals designed to create a place where people want to live, work and visit by promoting change that complements the existing uses in the Derriford area.
The plan also sets out how historic assets such as the Crownhill Fort and Drakes Leat will be protected. .
After Cabinet meeting of Plymouth council, people will be invited to give their comments in February/March before the final draft plan is submitted to the Secretary of State in May.
