Exeter City Futures has published the minutes of its 1 December 2022 board meeting nearly nine months after the meeting was held.
The page also says the company’s board is “committed to being completely transparent and open about the things that are discussed at board meetings”.
The minutes confirm that Global City Futures, another Oxygen House company which was previously in control of Exeter City Futures, has continued work on the controversial Exeter Development Fund via a direct contract framework agreement with the city council under Ian Collinson, the council’s development director.
The fund is expected to focus on redevelopment in the Southgate area, allocated site reference 46 in the current version of the new Exeter Local Plan, and an area alongside Exeter St David’s station known as “Red Cow village”, site reference 22 in the new Exeter Local Plan.
The city council announced in June that Exeter City Futures would be wound up at the end of the month following the final event in its £250,000 National Lottery-funded community engagement programme, although it has yet to file.
