New Exeter Local Plan

As the Greater Exeter Strategic Plan (GESP) and the Development Delivery Development Plan Document (DPD) are no longer being progressed, we are in the process of writing a new Local Plan. This will cover the years between 2020 and 2040, and will eventually replace existing plans (the Core Strategy and Local Plan First Review). Our Local Development Scheme (LDS) sets out the timetable for the Local Plan preparation.
