Exeter Civic Society

Exeter Civic Society

Highways & Transport sub-committee

The sub-committee was established in January 2014.  We currently meet about 5 times a year, though there is activity in between meetings.  Our meeting notes and other working papers are posted here

Exeter is a rapidly growing City and is seen by planners as the centre of employment, commerce and retail activity for the Heart of Devon, supporting people and communities in much of East and Mid Devon, Teignbridge, and central Devon (Okehampton area).  The growing population, employment and retail opportunities generate a significant level of transport in and around the City, and at peak times at the start and end of the day roads are congested, with long queues of traffic both entering and leaving the city. And we are concerned about the additional congestion once future planned development is completed in 2026 and beyond.

We would welcome Society members becoming involved in transport issues, and there is no need to be a formal member of the sub-committee.  You can contact the sub-committee convenor, Keith Lewis, by email on exetercivic.transport@gmail.com.
