Exeter City Council is in the process of writing the new “Exeter Plan”, which will form the basic planning document for the next 20 years, up to 2040.

Exeter Civic Society makes it a priority to comment on any new development in this issue, as we regard it as crucial to have a strengthened public voice in the consultation process. Our work on the ‘Wider Water Lane Area Redevelopment’ will feed into our comments on the Exeter Plan.

Our ‘Strategic Planning & Highways Group’ has been working on a response about the ‘Draft Exeter Plan’, released in Oct 2020. We sent our ECS document in to ECC, together with our ‘Prospectus’ on Friday, 16 December 2022, after having released parts of it at the Commonplace platform launched by ECC.  Read out Exeter Civic Society Submission for the Draft Exeter Plan here.

 

Exeter Civic Society will monitor equivalent local plans in the East Devon District Council and the Teignbridge District Council, as planning just outside Exeter will have impact on the traffic and employment situation in Exeter.

In January 2023 the ‘Strategic Planning & Highways’ Group responded to the East Devon Draft Plan with this letter and postings on the Commonplace electronic feedback system. We mainly dealt with traffic issues and planning suggestions in the areas close to Exeter and Topsham.

On 11 March 2023 the ‘Strategic Planning & Highways’ Group responded to the Teignbridge Plan with a letter and postings on the Commonplace electronic feedback system. We focussed on developments close to the western side of Exeter.

Nov 2023: we are currently working on Teignbridge District Council’s Proposed Submission Local Plan 2020-2040 Addendum which will be consulted on from 8 November until 5pm on 22 December 2023. Documents and supporting evidence are available at www.teignbridge.gov.uk/localplanaddendum .
