Devon, Cornwall and Somerset Young Planners are really pleased to invite you to join us for a tour and talk of the award winning St Sidwell’s Point as well as a talk from those that helped design and build the new Passivhaus leisure centre in Exeter on 26th July 2022.

St Sidwell’s Point, is the first UK leisure centre built to Passivhaus standard and is a demonstration of Exeter City Council’s vision for the future of the city, which includes developing a high quality and accessible built environment to encourage healthy, active lifestyles.

The building is an ambitious low energy, high value project that delivers its high-bar brief to provide a highly energy efficient building of striking architectural quality, innovative design and world leading technology, with a person friendly environment, for years to come.

On the 6 July, St Sidwell's was awarded as Joint Winner of Best Project - Excellence in Planning Delivery in the RTPI Awards for Planning Excellence in the South West. They were also awarded Highly Commeded in the Chair's Award.

We will meet at the Civic Centre, home of Exeter City Council, and the tour will run between 17:00 and 18:30 after which we will head somewhere for a bite to eat.

It’ll be great to catch up in person once again and we look forward to seeing you there.

Tickets are limited so book now to avoid disappointment!
