Coming Soon

Exeter City Futures is currently working to collate projects that are creating impact against these goals across Exeter, and to collect and analyse data that will help us track our goals. We are also creating an online space where citizens can share their ideas for solutions and give feedback on the ideas shared by others. Come back soon to see our progress, and share potential solutions that will help us to achieve our 12 goals for the City.
