Exeter City Council’s Planning Officer has recommended that an application by the University of Exeter to build an Estates Services Centre on the eastern edge of the campus be approved.
If you like to walk along Belvidere Road, in the Duryard Valley or around the Green Circle this will have a significant impact on your enjoyment.
An ‘estates services centre’ is not an office block. It is an industrial facility.
Birdsong will be replaced by the sounds of machinery including fork lift trucks, pressure washers, tractors and HGVs.
It will be hard to dodge this, as the Centre will operate 7 days a week from 7am to 6pm.
If you are concerned about this, please check the details on the Council website (application number 20/1685/OUT) and make your views known to your councillors and those on the Planning Committee.
The Committee meets this Thursday, 27 May.
