This site as currently developed serves as a district shopping and service centre. Its existence will become even more prominent with the redevelopment of Haven Banks and Water Lane. Any redevelopment will have take that into account. A predominantly residential transformation with 230 dwellings will not support the current vital retail and service function.

Immediately adjacent to this site is the derelict, grade II listed former Exeter St Thomas Railway Station building, adjacent railway arches, Cowick conservation area and views of Exeter Cathedral to the east. We do not yet consider that there is sufficient evidence that this site could accommodate 230 homes while conserving and enhancing these heritage assets and their settings. We recommend that an HIA is carried out to inform the site capacity and appropriate policy criteria. A strategic evidence base relating to key views and settings could also help to inform this policy, helping to establish appropriate building heights bearing in mind the potential for impacts on the setting of nearby conservation areas and views of the Cathedral.

It would be a shame to lose the shops. St Thomas is a community not a housing estate.

The remnant of the erstwhile 'West Gate' allocation, now confined to the west side of the river between Cowick and Alphington Streets and the railway line. Wholly on the flood plain of the river and thus with considerable palaeo-environmental potential (former river channels). The area east of an historic leat/property boundary is known to have been used by a post-medieval (16th and early 17th century) bell and vessel foundry and to contain vast quantities of used moulds backfilled into clay quarry pits (partially excavated in 1984 and 1990). Possible site of medieval tilery somewhere within the site (unlocated, to date).
