Starting on Thursday, October 1, Exeter City Council is carrying out a consultation on the growth of Exeter up to 2026. This is in response to targets for development that are being set by the Regional Spatial Strategy which the government is in the process of finalising. (From a press release)
The latest version of the Regional Spatial Strategy proposes that 15, 000 homes should be built over the plan period. The City Council accepted an earlier draft which proposed 12,000 homes but have objected to the increase.
The consultation report considers the implications of achieving either target and is available online at www.exeter.gov.uk Alternatively people can pick up a copy of the report from the Customer Service Centre at the Civic Centre in Paris Street, or from libraries in Exeter.
The deadline for comments is 19 November.
