Work is underway on the next phase to transform Millbay.

Preparation and site clearance work has already been carried out on the site on the eastern side of the historic former dock and work has started to build 137 new homes, featuring a mix of apartments and split level homes. The scheme will also continue the new waterside promenade and Quadrant Quay’s coastal-themed, landscaped garden rooms. The first homes are expected to be finished in summer 2019

It’s the second significant development to start in Millbay this year following the start of a new 80-apartment Abbeyfield Extra Care Scheme.

The wider Millbay regeneration project is an exciting mix of residential, leisure, business and retail development, with high quality public spaces and direct access to the waterfront. Its lead developer is English Cities Fund and is a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal and General and the Homes and Communities Agency.

Over £90 million of a planned £200 million has already been invested in Millbay, which now has over 400 new homes, new businesses, the new 1,000-pupil Plymouth School of Creative Arts, the 171-berth King Point Marina and the Dock Restaurant.


New homes are going up on the eastern side of the historic Millbay Docks, with work to create 137 new homes in full swing.

The £30 million development comprises a mixture of one two and three bedroom apartments laid out in two blocks and a row of split-level homes. New homes are now available for reservation. 

Work is also under way on the new Mayflower Court scheme being built by the Abbeyfield Society which will provide supported living and extra care for 80 residents and shared spaces for community use.
