Exeter Transport Strategy

Last updated: 10th April 2019

Exeter Transport Strategy – now out for consultation till the end of February.

Devon County Council is keen to hear views of individual residents as well as community groups and other stakeholders on its new draft Exeter Transport Strategy. William Pratt, DCC's Principal Transport Planning Officer writes:

The County Council is now consulting on a new Exeter Transport Strategy.


Exeter has grown rapidly over the past two decades. This economic success and growing influence has increased travel demand into the city.

The existing transport strategy for Exeter is set out in the Local Transport Plan 3 (2011-2026) and the County Council has helped to deliver over £75 million of transport infrastructure in Exeter and East Devon Growth Point area since 2011.

A significant part of the existing strategy has now been delivered. With a better understanding of travel habits and rapidly changing technology, we want to update the strategy to address current priorities and the needs of communities.

This has led to the development of the draft Exeter Transport Strategy which we are now seeking your views on. The new Transport Strategy will aim to provide a sustainable transport system which supports continued growth in the city and surrounding areas but also enhances the environment for residents, pedestrians and cyclists.

The draft strategy, and associated documents, can be accessed from the following link https://new.devon.gov.uk/haveyoursay/consultations/the-exeter-transport-strategy/

We would warmly welcome your input on this, ask ask you to fill in the online questionnaire.

Alternatively, you can send us your comments by post or email to the following
