Exeter College Technology Centre - Please grant permission

16 Signatures Goal: 100

PLANS have been unveiled for a world-class centre for engineering, aerospace and automotive training on the edge of the city.

Exeter College has applied for planning permission to build an £8.5 million technology centre just off the Monkerton link road.

It is hoped the facility – featuring workshops, laboratories and teaching spaces for around 300 students – will be ready to open by September next year.

Business leaders say the scheme will help secure Exeter's future prosperity by ensuring a supply of skilled workers.


People all of all ages but young people especially are dying for something like this in the community. This facility will will help secure a sustainable, innovative and creative future for the young generation in Devon. It will create a hub for people who already have a passion and interest in engineering, science and technology to continue developing their skills in this area, it will also enable people to try out new things and share learning. People are having to find opportunities elsewhere like London, Bristol or Plymouth. This industry plays such a huge part in young people putting skills to use in so many business areas such as media, mechanics, teaching, broadcasting, publishing and of course our public services like the forces, public transport and the NHS.  It will be a creative and expressive breeding ground for the people in Devon. If planning permission gets granted it will be an essential asset to our community. Please sign to show your support. Article linked below Thank you.
