Citizen set to spring through Exeter letterboxes
Published: 13 March 2023
Packed full with news, information and features, Exeter City Council’s newspaper, The Exeter Citizen, returns this month.
The Spring 2023 edition of the Citizen will be delivered to homes and businesses throughout the city during the week commencing Monday 13 March.
This month’s publication carries a handy feature on what people need to do to be able to vote in this May’s local elections. For the first time this year, people will need to show photo ID if voting at the polling stations. There’s also important information on how to get on the electoral register and how to apply for a postal vote.
This edition also sets out how much people pay for their council tax. In Exeter, those living in a Band D property pay only £3.36 per week for all City Council services! The City Council element of the overall bill is just 8%.
There’s a handy Your Councillors page with all the information on how to contact City Councillors in every ward, recycling information and news about what’s on at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery, and Exeter Corn Exchange.
It’s also time to Live and Move, and there’s a feature on how the Exeter and Cranbrook Sport England Local Delivery Pilot is getting more and more people active on a daily basis. There’s information on how to apply for grants to improve homes and how help is just a click away as part of the City Council’s Home Call system.
Also included in this edition are stories about the new railway station at Marsh Barton, Exeter UNESCO City of Literature, Exeter Respect Festival and Exeter Volunteer Fayre. There’s also a feature about solar energy and how it’s powering City Council waste and recycling trucks, offices and the Materials Reclamation Facility west of the Exe.
Look out for the Citizen as it pops through letter boxes throughout the city. Once finished with the Citizen can be placed in green wheelie bins and recycled along with other household items
