Roadshows are a great way to have your say on the Exeter Plan

People have continued to make their voices heard on plans for the future development of Exeter.

The latest Exeter Plan exhibition roadshow was held at Exeter’s historic Guildhall in the High Street. Residents were able to quiz Council officers and members of the Planning team and give their views at the historic venue.

The event was the latest in a 10 week tour of every ward in the city – and there are two more public consultations next week.

On Tuesday 11 October the exhibition will be at Alphington Village Hall, Ide Lane, between 1pm and 7pm, and on Thursday 13 October it will be at America Hall, De la Rue Way, Pinhoe, between 1pm and 7pm.

The Exeter Plan – the city’s Local Plan – will be the blueprint that shapes the future development of Exeter.

It highlights important issues like housing, climate change, economy and jobs, the future of the high street, transport and infrastructure and design quality, the Exeter Plan builds on the city’s vision to be healthy, inclusive and sustainable.

Council Leader Phil Bialyk said: “We really want everyone in Exeter to get involved in the consultation on the Exeter Plan.

“It is so important that people have their say on how our city grows and develops in the years ahead, where new homes will be built, where employment land will be and how we can grow and develop in a sustainable way.”
