Exeter City Centre Bus Station Development

Exeter City Council is proposing to build a new bus station and leisure centre in Exeter city centre. To facilitate this there are a number of changes proposed that will affect traffic driving and parking in the city centre.

More details on the bus station development can be found on Exeter City Council’s website.

 

Phase 1 – Partial closure of Exeter Bus Station

Initial proposals were considered and approved at the Exeter Highways and Traffic Orders Committee on Monday 14 November 2016. Due to the changing status of the development, the proposals have changed since the meeting and the final scheme was advertised from 5 April 2018 until 26 April 2018. The comments were presented to the Exeter Highways and Traffic Orders Committee on the 18 May 2018 where a decision was made to implement the proposals as advertised except for some lengths of no loading at any time in Verney Street.

Some of the restrictions were implemented on 17 June 2018 with the restrictions in Bampfylde Street and Bude Street going live on 23 July 2018.

Phase 2 – Closure of Bampfylde Street

The bus station development will eventually require the closure of Bampfylde Street, south-west of its junction with Cheeke Street. In order to allow buses to access the bus station, it is proposed that traffic wishing to access the bus station and Bude Street area may do so via Paris Street.

These proposals were considered by the Exeter Highways and Traffic Orders Committee on the 18 May 2018 where it was agreed to advertise the proposals.

The consultation ran from Thursday 26 July until Thursday 16 August 2018. The comments submitted were considered by the local county councillor and chair of the Exeter Highways and Traffic Orders Committee who agreed to implement the interim proposals as advertised.

The restrictions in the Southernhay area were implemented on 22 January 2019 with the restrictions in Bampfylde Street and Bude Street going live on 15 April 2019.

The consultation on these proposals ran from 2 July until 6 August 2020. Details of the proposed changes are detailed in the documents below.
