Joint Strategy 'Our Shared Coordinates'

A Joint Strategy has been prepared for the area covered by Exeter, East Devon, Mid Devon and Teignbridge Councils. This follows decisions taken by each of the four Councils in 2021 with support from Devon County Council.


The Joint Strategy called Our Shared Coordinates, is a non-statutory document that reflects the ambitions and proposals of existing and emerging Local Plans across the area. It sets out shared ambitions and linkages across a range of strategic planning matters and identifies a high level list of infrastructure matters that have cross-boundary significance for supporting the delivery of planned new homes, jobs, services, transport and other development.


The Joint Strategy demonstrates the commitment to ongoing joint working across the area on strategic matters and will be used by the four Councils as a prospectus to help guide investment and funding across the sub-region, helping us deliver sustainable growth and achieve our ambition to position the area as one of the best places to live and work in the United Kingdom.


The Joint Strategy was approved by Exeter City Council’s Executive in November 2023. It has also been approved by East Devon, Mid Devon and Teignbridge District Councils.
