A-Z of Property – Prosperous Plans for Plymouth

The coastal city of Plymouth is earmarked for significant development. This, along with its rich history, gives the location an interesting edge and its ferry links to Spain and France add an extra dimension for those wishing to live close to the sea.

Plymouth’s history goes back to the Bronze Age, when its first settlement grew at Mount Batten. Since then the city has remained an important area for industry and its economy is still strongly influenced by shipbuilding.  Today the city is home to around 250,000 people, making it the 19th most populated city in the United Kingdom. It has the ninth largest university in the UK by number of students, and is home to the largest operational naval base in Western Europe.

Plymouth Council is currently undertaking a project of urban redevelopment called  “Vision for Plymouth” launched by the architect David Mackay. Projects include shopping centres, a cruise terminal, and a boulevard.  The aim is to to increase the population to 300,000 and build 33,000 new homes.
