Final call for potential development sites in Exeter

Final call for potential development sites in Exeter

Landowners and developers are being invited to submit potential development sites for consideration as part of the Exeter Plan.

The plan is the document which will set out the vision and policies to guide Exeter’s future up to 2040.

A key challenge highlighted in the Exeter Plan is the need for at least 13,000 new homes over the plan period.

The call for sites aims to:

  • identify new sites that can help Exeter meet its need for new homes and economic growth over the next 20 years.
  • identify land that could be allocated for housing, employment and mixed-use development in the next review of the Exeter Plan.
  • The City Council welcomes submissions for sites of all sizes within the city boundaries.

    Priority will be given to brownfield sites and locations near services, amenities and sustainable transport links. The sites will be assessed to consider suitability for inclusion in the next version of the Exeter Plan.

    Landowners are advised to only submit sites if they have not been submitted in a previous call for sites exercise undertaken since 2020.

    The submission deadline is 15 January 2024. Full details are available at: https://exeterplanfull.commonplace.is/en-GB/proposals/call-for-sites/

    For anyone still wishing to find out more about the Exeter Plan, there are two more public consultation events remaining:

  • 9 Jan - Exeter Library, Castle Street, Exeter, EX4 3PQ, 11am to 2pm
