Regeneration of the Ship Canal and Basin will help deliver the 2040 Exeter Vision’s aspirations for increased prosperity and reputation for extending inspired innovation through access to new sectors and quality training for skills in new areas of job and personal development. The canal creates particular opportunities and educational connections for Exeter that are not replicable everywhere, for creativity in the future of waterways, and in jobs and skills training in the latest technologies and traditional crafts of boat design, construction and restoration, and in environment management: new creativities that will transform an old setting. This needs to be referenced in an additional bullet point under ‘Transformational sectors’. EJ1: Economic growth in the transformational sectors (Strategic policy) It is suggested adding to the list of the transformational sectors to be supported: • Innovative waterway regeneration, management and commerce;

A fully used canal and basin have significant potential to contribute to the Full Draft’s educational vision and the objective that economic benefits of jobs, skills and training are widely accessible through up-skilling and re-skilling. Water-related jobs lend themselves particularly to short-term placements at one end of the scale and apprenticeships at the other. Waterways and water-related jobs make a great place to work and a great place to build a business. It is suggested that a reference is added under ‘Access to jobs and skills’ to maximising the employment opportunities of the canal and basin. Preparation for work and volunteering Outdoor study and classes based around waterways have been shown to spark young people’s interests in STEM subjects such as engineering and science as well as ecology and the environment because they are able to see these disciplines in action along the water. Community skills training based on the basin and around the canal – for example with links with boat building academies – would develop skills through short courses or linked to qualifications for people of all ages and backgrounds in traditional maritime related crafts such as sail and mast making, carpentry, boat maintenance and metalwork. Engaging people of all ages in important volunteering work connected with the waterway is a strategic aspect of community health and inclusivity in Section 12: ‘High quality places and design’ (p. 90) and warrants cross-references with Section 13: ‘Health and wellbeing’. Exeter Ship Canal and Basin will support employment and training, and are important to the Exeter Vision as a whole. Major development proposals should be required to show in their Employment and Skills Plan that the waterway has been considered in meeting the required objectives.
