Rush Hour Transport in Exeter 2011 – 2026

The population growth planned for Exeter during the next fifteen years will have an impact on the quality of life in various ways. A detailed analysis of the effect on rush-hour mobility of those travelling to work has been carried out by Transport group member Trevor Priest

Dear friends

Transition Exeter has achieved a great deal over the last few years – generating projects on food, energy and most recently, a local currency, holding public information meetings, conversations with Exeter City Council about transport plans, city growth, housing, and energy, and supporting anticonsumerist groups and skill sharing for low carbon lifestyles. There are also activities for families, in the Green Walks and Wildlife Watch sessions.

Annual General Meeting and Social

Our AGM is at the Real Food Store, Paris Street, Exeter at 6:45pm on Thursday 24th July. There will be food and entertainment after the formal business.

Talk and discussion lead by Gill Westcott, Transition Exeter Economics Group. Click here for a report of the meeting.

An Exeter Pound?

Since September’s public meeting about the Bristol Pound, a working group has been investigating whether an Exeter Pound would be a good idea. We have found potential support from independent businesses and the City Council. What do you think?
