Culm Garden Village

Culm Garden Village is one of only 14 areas awarded Garden Village Status by the Government in January 2017. Located to the east of Cullompton, the Garden Village has the potential to deliver up to 5,000 sustainable new homes in a country park landscape, with jobs, community facilities and transport, all integrated with Cullompton itself.

A modern take on traditional Garden City principles developed in the 19th Century, Culm is intended to have its own Garden Village vision and principles developed with the local community and reflected throughout the development.  Culm is proposed to be a healthy and sociable new settlement set within a natural environment and offering high-quality affordable housing and locally accessible jobs.  It is intended that Culm is integrated with Cullompton and provides benefits for existing and new residents and businesses alike.  It has the potential to be an ambitious modern new community that is right for Mid Devon and Cullompton.

Taking a landscape led approach to planning, the Garden Village is intended ensure the development makes the most of its landscape setting, and creates a green and leafy place with large areas of green space for sport, leisure and wildlife.
