Our Next Event!



Workshop II:

 

Responding to Planning Applications


Next Tuesday evening, November 15th  @ 7.00pm we’ll be hosting our next workshop at Dane's Castle Fire Station.  We hope you can join us!


Over recent months we have responded to the major planning applications around the city, including the city centre Bus Station redevelopment and the active application for IKEA Exeter. 

It is the planning stage where important decisions are made and result in the built structure of Exeter.  We therefore have a great opportunity to offer comment, influence the discussion and contribute to this key decision-making.

We’ll be discussing how design proposals that affect the fabric of our city are considered by our local authorities and we'll be joined by a professional planning consultant, guiding us through this valuable discipline.

We look forward to seeing you next week!


 


Work in Progress...

 

Emerging Cycle Routes


 

Devon County Council's team of designers having been working on proposals for improving the cycle link between Redhayes Bridge and Exeter University, referred to as Route E4. 


Over recent months we have been encouraging this design team and local councillors to follow published best practice guidance for cycling infrastructure and asking our council representatives to raise the vision for people that cycle in our city.

We recently prepared a report summarising the potential of this route, including the above visualisation representing a technically viable solution that improves the streetscape for people walking and cycling, that follows this best practice guidance.

We’ll present this report in more detail at our workshop next week!


 


Exeter Cycling Charter:

An Update!

 

The Exeter Cycling Charter was launched in October and has got off to a flying start.

The Charter is a simple statement of support for cycling as the means of making Exeter a better city.  

In less than two weeks, over sixty organisations have pledged their support for the Charter.  Schools, health practices, shops, architects and other businesses have endorsed its message: from small one- person shops to some of the city’s largest employers, including Devon County Council, The Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Trust, Devon & Cornwall Constabulary and Exeter City Football Club.

South West Water’s Business Services and Sustainability Director, Monica Read, said:  "We recognise that an active workforce is a healthier workforce, which is good both for the wellbeing of our staff and for our business.  South West Water is pleased to support the Exeter Cycling Charter as a demonstration of our organisation's commitment to a more sustainable way of doing business."

It’s not over yet though!  The Exeter Cycling Campaign aims to have several hundred organisations behind the Charter so that we can encourage our Councillors and Council Officers to make bold decisions to enable cycling.

Will you consider which organisations you can approach to support the Charter?  It’s not a frightening experience.  Organisations have overwhelmingly warmly welcomed the Charter as a good initiative that they are willing to support.  There’s a wealth of supporter resources here that can help you with this.

 


 

 

What does the Exeter Cycling Campaign stand for?

Enabling cycling will help Exeter tackle its challenges of pollution, congestion and unhealthy lifestyles.  


A comprehensive, convenient and connected network of cycle infrastructure enables people to choose cycling as the safe, natural choice for a large proportion of everyday journeys. This frees up road-space for essential car journeys.
