Have your say on city centre improvements
Published: 18 January 2022
People are being asked for suggestions on how to spend £10,000 of money to improve the environment in Exeter city centre.
The money could be spent on street art, murals, utility box wrapping or anything else to improve city pride.
The improvements are part of the Safer Central Exeter initiative, a partnership involving the City Council, Police, InExeter and community groups, to tackle crime and make the city centre safer.
Last year Exeter was awarded £432,000 from the government for the initiative. The money was topped up by £135,692 of match funding from other sources.
Safer Central Exeter aims to make streets safer by cracking down on neighbourhood crimes like burglary, vehicle theft and robbery. The initiative is looking at ways to cut crime, including simple changes to the design of streets such as locked gates around alleyways, increased street-lighting and the installation of CCTV. Crime prevention training, property marking and home security grants are also available to individuals.
People are being asked what small interventions – with a maximum spend of £10,000 - could lift and improve the look and feel of the city.
