Radio Devon on the move

BBC Radio Devon is set to move away from premesis in Mannamead to a new state-of-the-art, digital broadcasting centre at Sutton Harbour in Plymouth. It is part of the BBC's purpose built broadcast centre which will also house BBC South West television.

Building work is due to commence in 2008, and it is anticipated that the BBC will move into the new premises and begin broadcasting by late 2010.

John Lilley, Head of the BBC's South West region, said: "This move will place our journalists and programme-makers closer to our audience and provide us with accessible facilities fit for the digital future.

"It's an exciting time for the BBC in the South West and demonstrates the BBC's commitment to developing and maintaining the strength of its local and regional broadcasting."

The BBC will occupy 22,000 sq ft of space on three floors in a new 11-storey development, including a roof terrace with panoramic views of Sutton Harbour. There will be a further 11,000 sq ft of office space available, and 6,000 sq ft of ground floor commercial space, plus 101 residential apartments including 20 affordable units and 81 available on the open market.
