Plans to create a new leisure centre and bus station in the city centre have taken a step forward.
Councillors last night (30 January) backed a recommendation which would see the current bus station continue to operate as normal until May.
Proposals to extend the length of time Exeter Bus Station can remain open during work to build its replacement were backed by the council’s Leisure Complex and Bus Station Programme Board.
Councillors were told that following the decision of developer the Crown Estate to withdraw its plans to create a retail and leisure development at the site, it is now possible to keep the bus station fully open until May 2018.
And a number of bus services may be able to continue operating from the current location throughout the time it takes to build a new station and leisure centre.
