Consultation on Future Plans for Exeter

Exeter City Council is preparing the Exeter Plan, a new local plan which will shape the future of the city for the next twenty years. The Exeter Plan will be the main planning policy document for Exeter, setting out where development should take place and providing policies that will be used to make decisions on planning applications. From 23 October 2023 until 14 January 2024 the Council is consulting on a Full Draft of the Exeter Plan. It contains the vision for the future of Exeter, a complete set of draft planning policies and potential development sites for public comment. The Council is also preparing two other planning documents. The Liveable Water Lane Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) will provide a vision, development framework and design code to guide future development in an area of the city around Water Lane. The Householder’s Guide to Extension Design SPD will provide detailed advice to people submitting planning applications for extensions and alterations to their properties. The Council is consulting on the two SPDs from 23 October until 4 December 2023. We want to hear from our communities, businesses and stakeholders during the consultations as this is an important opportunity to shape the future of the city.
