Exeter and East Devon Low Carbon Study

Within the Exeter and East Devon New Growth Point a number of locations for new residential and employment developments have been identified to satisfy ambitious regional targets for new homes and employment. The significant scale of these developments has prompted serious consideration of how to measure and moderate their energy demands and their emissions of greenhouse gases.

This document, commissioned by the Exeter and East Devon New Growth Point Team on behalf of Exeter City Council, East Devon District Council and Devon County Council, was produced by Element Energy. It addresses energy demand issues by estimating the CO2 emissions from buildings in a 'business as usual' approach to development, and identifying the impact of policies and technologies which would reduce emissions. Using this evidence base, the report develops a coherent and costed strategy to limit the energy demand and mitigate the environmental impact of these developments.

Exmouth regeneration

Exmouth Vision is a hybrid public-private partnership driven through close joint working between us, Exmouth Town Council and Devon County Council. Alongside private investors, other public partners such as the Highways and Environment agencies will have an important role to play – as well as, of course, the town’s residents, businesses and visitors.

Seaton regeneration

The Seaton regeneration area lies between Seaton town centre, the seafront, Axmouth Harbour, the Axe riverside and Seaton Marshes. The public and private sector are working together with community organisations on several schemes designed to give this historic East Devon town a world-class visitor offering and a vibrant retail centre. The Seaton Regeneration Programme Board oversees this work and aims to bring forward significant improvements to the town.

Intermodal facility and freight distribution centre

The intermodal rail freight facility and distribution centre (known as Exeter Gateway) was granted outline planning permission in December 2007. Following this, a reserved matters application was approved in November 2011.

However, it is understood that Sainsbury's, who were the original developers of this project, are no longer intending to implement the development and are currently marketing the site.

Science Park Masterplan

The masterplan represents the best way to design and implement a science park on the eastern side of Exeter. It reflects the aspirations of the various project partners and their desire to create a unique environment for innovation and investment that will strengthen the regional economy and the role Exeter plays in it.
