Communities & planning

GSEP areaThe ‘Greater Exeter Strategic Partnership’ is being set up by Teignbridge, Mid-Devon, East Devon and Exeter Councils to put together a new land use plan for these areas until 2040.

Knowing how to get involved can be a mind boggling experience, so we are asking you: How should communities be involved in the new plan?

The Councils are about to consult on the key issues and in particular on their draft Statement of Community Involvement.

Exeter Community Forum will respond to this consultation on this statement. We’ll feed in the experiences and views of community organisations and fora from across the city on this proposed draft and how they would expect to be involved in future planning.

We’d encourage everyone to get involved in their local community organisation and respond to the Councils’ plans for Planning. Of course you can feed in directly to the council too.

You can read all the background documents here from Exeter City Council’s website:
