Many Ide residents travel to and from Exeter for work or education, or for shopping or leisure. The challenges posed by the fact that 50% of Exeter’s workforce commutes in from the outside the city, are that Exeter is a thriving ‘destination city’ with high growth rates, together with the need to move to a low carbon transport solutions, means that DCC and ECC need to ensure they have a workable transport plan that will deliver the necessaries for the future.

With this in mind, for the duration of this month, February 2019, there is a consultation taking place for the emerging Exeter Transport Plan. Information is available at: https://new.devon.gov.uk/haveyoursay/consultations/the-exeter-transport-strategy/ There is an online questionnaire accessibleon the above web page link, by which you can make your own personal views known as part of the consultation process.

Ide Parish Council will also provide its own consultation response
