New plans for "Wildlife haven" Paris Street roundabout
Exeter City Council has released plans for a new "Wildlife haven" design for the Paris Street roundabout.
The proposal is part of the Exeter Wild City project with Devon Wildlife Trust and Exeter City Council and will turn the roundabout into "a showcase for wildlife friendly gardening."
A £40,000 planning contribution from Jury's Inn hotel has been secured to be spent on Public Art in the area of the new hotel. The proposal is for a high quality and dramatic landscape scheme that will transform the roundabout into an attractive landscape feature that showcases the potential for urban green spaces to benefit wildlife. The aim of the project is to demonstrate the potential for wildlife friendly gardens to be beautiful and low maintenance, whilst providing an important habitat for urban wildlife.
Exeter Bus Station, which is next to the roundabout, is currently undergoing a proposed £200m redevelopment which could take five years to complete. The council has stated the new development will be a mix of shops and leisure facilities, including a new swimming pool, although the plans have raised some concerns from the Exeter public.
A Full Dermalogica Facial,which lasts 1 and 1/2 hours,including Back,Neck,Shoulder Massage, now only £35.

The Bus Station is one of many changes to happen to the Paris Street area partly due to the opening of the new John Lewis store this Autumn.
Ideas for the proposed landscape design include; a swift tower incorporating nest boxes for swifts, a dry stone wall and wood sculptures incorporating habitats for mini-beasts and nesting birds, sculptural metal animals and native wildflower planting.
Exeter Wild City is a partnership between Devon Wildlife Trust and Exeter City Council. The aim of the partnership is to enhance wildlife in Exeter.
Exeter City Council would like views on proposed design at their website www.exeter.gov.uk. The closing date for the consultation is 30th June 2012.
