EXETER DEAF ACADEMY PLAYING FIELD. (Mount Radford Lawn.)
We recently heard some very good news that Mount Radford Lawn has been listed by Exeter Cioy Council as an "Asset Of Community Value".
This does not come with any guarantees of its future, but it is an important step along the way to keeping the playing field as a playing field.
The the owner has asked for a review of the decision to list.
To find out how the listing helps us and more, go to the ECC website here.

At the February public consultation, on plans for the former Leisure Centre site at Clifton Hill, we said we would hold a further event to present the detailed proposals. In light of the current restrictions on public gatherings, the latest proposals will instead be available to view online, from Friday 24 April 2020, at:
The online information will include a set of exhibition boards and a presentation, showing the site layout and housing designs, as well as a recorded Q&A session with local ward councillors, and answers to some Frequently Asked Questions, including responses to the queries and issues raised during the February consultation.
It is the intention to submit the planning application to Exeter City Council at the end of May, when you will have a further opportunity to comment.
If you have any queries, require a printed copy of
the exhibition boards or would prefer it in an alternative format , please contact our consultation team, Avril Baker Consultancy, on 0117 977 2002 or email: email@example.com
Is this going to happen again in view of the present lock-down.?
We would like to think so, but we fear that it is unlikely. Even if it was just the Long-Table event that would be a good celebration of the community getting together again. Watch this space.
In July last year the SLNA, in conjunction with local doctor’s surgeries, closed Magdalen Road and held a very successful Wellfest in the street. Health-promoting activities, singing, dancing, zumba, parkour, cycling and short health-related talks were displayed and given throughout the day ending up with a long-table meal for 240 people. It was really good fun. We really hope to hold another one on Sunday June 21st. Watch out for the publicity.
The residents of many streets in Exeter and around the country have observed the 8pm Thursday ritual of coming out into their streets and clapping for the NHS and other essential workers at the front line of protecting the rest of us.
The residents of Marlborough Road have gone one step further. To the tune of Edward Elgar’s Land Of Hope And Glory, re-arranged by Peter Adcock and words re-written by Mish Giles, both residents of the road, they came out and treated anyone within hearing distance to a rousing rendition of The Marlborough Road NHS Anthem.
Not only a wonderful way of expressing their thanks, but also a great way to give everyone more ‘feel-good’ sentiments.
