    The Clyst Valley Regional Park masterplan has been approved by East Devon’s Strategic Planning Committee. That's worth celebrating!

    We listened carefully to the feedback from 240 people and organisations, responding to strong calls for outdoor education and more ambitious nature recovery targets. Requests for the boundary to be extended will form part of the process of producing a new Local Plan for East Devon, now underway. We've also begun an application for up to £5 million from the National Lottery Heritage Fund to deliver projects. If you want to be part of this, we'd love to hear from you. Read the approved plan
