Retail initiatives for adoption | Exeter City Futures
At Exeter's Emergency Roundtable: Retail in a Post-Covid city, hosted by Exeter City Futures, delegates recommended initiatives that they would like to see Exeter adopt.
Benefiting retailers and the retail sector in Exeter, Exeter City Futures is now seeking to identify who in the city is willing to get involved in taking the recommended initiatives forward.
For the eagle-eyed amongst you, we have grouped the recommended initiatives, and in some cases split them out where they covered two or more points.
It's really easy to tell us which initiatives you are interested in supporting:
- Select as many of the intiatives outlined below that you want to help take forward (tick the boxes)
- Answer a quick question about how you want to get involved
- Let us know if there's any area in Exeter in which you could like to focus your support
- Click 'submit'
We'll close this questionnaire at 9am on Monday 3rd August and get back to you shortly afterwards with details of proposed next steps regarding the initiatives in which you are interested.
