The City of Plymouth lies between the mouths of the rivers Plym to the east and Tamar to the west, where they join Plymouth Sound. Plymouth is a historic port in Devon and has a population of around 250,000 people.
Plymouth House Prices & Redevelopment
Until recently, the property market in Plymouth had been showing strong signs of improvement. However, house price growth in Plymouth has begun to slow as of late. There is a great deal of contention as to whether or not the high levels of growth in local house prices was a good thing or not. There was a growing sense that, as house prices began to reach similar levels to 2007, the only way they could realistically go was down again. It is worth pointing out however, that these increases were not universally witnessed across the city.
Lang and Co. representative James Clarke said that “in Plymouth, some of the more popular areas and sectors, prices are returning to the 2007 levels prior to the property crash”. Mr Clarke evidences this by asserting that “Peverell Park Road houses are always a good barometer of the market in the city and they are definitely back to pre-slump levels”.
Fears of interest rate rises combined with stricter regulation and harsher rhetoric from the Bank of England have, in common with many other areas throughout the country, resulted in the local market slowing down recently. Perhaps a crash in house prices is not on the horizon in Plymouth.
Under the guidance of Barcelona based architect David Mackay, Plymouth City Council and Plymouth Chamber of Commerce launched a plan called ‘Vision for Plymouth’ that included : taller, more quality landmark buildings and improved transport interchanges in the city centre; enhancement of the cultural quarter focusing primarily on the university, museum and library; improvements to the harbour to include the creation of landmark buildings at the gateway, improved links to the city centre and augmentation of water transport in the area; significant bettering of the waterfront in the form of the installation of new and refurbished visitor attractions with piers and walkways along the foreshore and water transport links from the Hoe to Sutton Harbour, Millbay and beyond.
The decade old plans are currently beginning to bear substantial fruit for the city. The waterfront area, so pivotal to Mackay’s plans for the revitalisation of the city centre, has become a vibrant new mixed commercial and residential area, centred on the famous Royal William Yard, which boasts the largest collection of Grade I listed buildings in the UK outside London, and including cafes, bars, restaurants, a museum, art galleries, offices and residential spaces.
Other wharf developments include residential complexes at Azure, Discovery Wharf, East Quay House and Queen Anne’s Quay. The Drake Circus Shopping Centre and the TR2 education centre were added to the city’s architectural milieu in 2006 and 2003 respectively. Work is due to begin soon on the 22 acre Plymouth Enterprise Park, located to the north-west of the city at Ernesettle, while work is currently ongoing on a £350m project to create a 20 acre mixed-use development at Millbay.
A recently completed residential development, which produced 1,160 brand new homes benefiting from green areas and communal buildings, received a prestigious Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors award last year.
Plymouth Culture & Economy
Historically, Plymouth’s economy has been the Maritime industry. As with other ports, this naturally led to the development of a large stake in the defence industry. While both of these have seen significant declines in recent years, they are still large contributors to the economy in Plymouth, with defence alone employing 12, 000 people in the area, 7, 500 of which are directly employed by the armed forces. Devonport Dockyard is currently the only UK naval base that refits nuclear submarines and the Navy estimates that this sector of the economy produces approximately 10% of Plymouth’s overall annual income. The city also has 270 marine and maritime businesses, the biggest cluster of such businesses anywhere in the south west. The public sector also employs a large percentage of Plymouth’s workforce, particularly in health, education (Plymouth University alone employs 3,000 members of staff), medicine and engineering.
Plymouth Tradition & History
The city of Plymouth lies between the River Plym to the east and the River Tamar to the west, both of which flow into the iconic bay known locally as The Sound. There is evidence of Upper Paleolithic inhabitation of caves near to where Plymouth now stands and archaeology also shows that there has been a settlement in the area around Plymouth since the Bronze Age, specifically at the rocky peninsula of Mount Batten. Until it was eventually surpassed by nearby Sutton, which is now modern day Plymouth, Mount Batten served as a trading post for the Roman Empire.
Plymouth has gained fame for a number of reasons throughout the centuries since its founding. In 1620, it was the launching point for the The Mayflower‘s fateful voyage which eventually saw the Pilgrim Fathers establish Plymouth Colony, second only to Jamestown in Virginia as the oldest English settlement in what is now the United States of America.
According to legend, it was on Plymouth Hoe that Sir Francis Drake declared he would finish his game of bowls before engaging the Spanish Armada in 1588. It was from the port of Plymouth that Sir John Hawkins became the first man to dip England’s toe into the murky waters of the Atlantic slave trade.
As documented by several paintings in London’s National Maritime Museum, it was in Plymouth Sound that Napoleon was held on HMS Bellerophon between 26 July – 4 August 1815, as he awaited a decision in regards to his fate following his momentous defeat at the Battle of Waterloo.
Sixteen years later, HMS Beagle sailed from Plymouth with a young man named Charles Darwin aboard. It was on that journey that he would begin to formulate a theory that would unequivocally alter the way humankind viewed itself, the world it inhabited and even God himself, forever. Following the 59 Luftwaffe raids that constituted the Plymouth Blitz, the city was widely reconstructed in accord with the zonal plans of Sir Patrick Abercrombie.
