Reimagining Exeter

Created 2 months ago, updated 17 days ago

The COVID-19 pandemic is fundamentally changing our cities, as many of us are beginning to reassess our lifestyles, change the ways we work, and shift our values.

We are experiencing a taste of what Exeter’s future could look like, and we now have the opportunity to take the learnings from our current challenging situation, and isolation, and turn it into creative, positive, practical action.

The lockdown has suddenly launched en-masse adoption of practices and behaviours that would have, in ‘business-as-usual’, pre-COVID-19 circumstances been considered impossible – vast swathes of the workforce working from home, less traffic on our roads, and greater numbers seeking green public spaces and eating locally produced food, to name just a few.

Exeter City Futures launched an interactive map to help people across the city highlight the positive changes they would like to retain for life after lockdown and ideas about how Exeter could be improved post lockdown. The map is live, it's super-easy to add your thoughts, and can be found here: https://exetercommunity.ushahidi.io/views/map

This page contains a static snapshot of the issues raised on the map, and will be updated periodically.

R code to extract responses to the "I would like to see" survey, convert from nested to a conventional table structure and produce a simplefeatures object for use in 3rd party maps.
