Devonshire Quarter is the largest established residential quarter in the city with a long history of family occupation. Significant opportunities for family or other non student housing now exist in the Southern part of the quarter around Milton Street where the Council has significant land ownership where further development would complement the work that has begun to transform Eye Witness works into housing.
The opportunity is flanked by suites that have started and or have planning permission. The Council will be completing a masterplan of the area and this opportunity is key to ensure that connectivity to the wider area and through to the adjoining residential areas are planned in. The Council is looking for an innovative developer and or investor with experience of family housing in a city centre context.
