Exeter is a fast growing city and there are many planning proposals - some of which have a negative effect on our green spaces and trees. Any such planning proposals will be listed on my Blog so everybody is fully aware of the situation and have a fair say in the matter. Please note that once a planning application is put forward and becomes available on the Exeter planning web site - we only have 21 days to comment. It is important that as many comments are added as it will help 'steer' fairer decision making for our trees and green spaces.
Please check out my Blog for key information and news about the various planning proposals in Exeter. General planning news will be listed below as well as any other useful material.
