Hugo writes to Exeter City Council with concerns over new mental health facility near primary school

A number of constituents have contacted me to raise concerns over the plans to build a secure mental health facility at Ribston Avenue in Exeter, adjacent to St Nicholas Catholic Primary School.

The school’s catchment area includes parts of Topsham and St Loyes in the East Devon constituency.

In response, I wrote to the schools inspectorate Ofsted, Plymouth Catholic Academy Schools Trust and Exeter City Council last month.

Plymouth CAST and I share concerns over the proposed location of the site.

The planning application process is a matter for Exeter City Council, who have now referred the matter back to Planning Committee.

I am awaiting a response to my letter to Exeter City Council, a copy of which you can view below.
