Final Report available to download: Analyses contributing to the Boundary Committee's evidence base
From early 2008 the Boundary Committee for England started to collate evidence relevant to the definition of boundaries of unitary local government area(s) covering the area which Devon County Council administers at present. This study has used some innovative methods to combine the results of new analyses of data from the 2001 Census migration and commuting datasets, along with other published and unpublished information which sheds light on the extent of the relationship between the current Exeter City area and surrounding more rural areas.
