Our Vision

An increasing population and an expanding travel to work region is attracting more commuters from across Devon, and putting a significant strain on the Exeter region’s roads, energy resources and the well-being of its citizens. Exeter City Futures has set a bold goal to make the region congestion free and energy independent by 2025.
