Consultation events for Ide/Alphington park and ride scheme

Devon County Council are holding two public consultation events, on July 21st & 23rd, (details below in blue). This consultation relates to a ‘planning pre-application‘ – that is,  the Council’s first approach to it’s own planning department with outline ideas on the park and ride scheme, before it puts in the formal planning application before the end of this year. The public have been given less than two weeks notice about these events, despite DCC already deciding they were to be held by mid-June, so please spread the word. Still, better late than never – do go along or input your views online.

Here’s the official information:

“Devon County Council and Jacobs are jointly hosting two consultation events on proposals for a Park and Ride site on the south west outskirts of Exeter that will serve the Alphington Road corridor.  Devon County Council has been developing plans for a new preferred site near the A30 interchange junction, between the westbound slip road and the road that leads out towards Ide.

 The consultation events will be held at West Exe School on Tuesday 21 July, from 4pm to 8pm, and at Ide Village Hall on Thursday 23 July, from 4pm to 8pm.  County Council officers and Jacobs staff will be present at both events and be on hand to answer any questions.

 Alternatively, if you are unable to make either of the two events then the consultation material will be available online at for three weeks from Tuesday 21 July.

 We look forward to seeing you at one of our events and receiving your feedback.

 Kind regards,
