4. Our district

East Devon is a beautiful part of the UK. It’s not just that it feels like a nice place to live –it officially is. Not only did our residents tell us this in a national survey run by the government, we are also blessed with the fact that two-thirds of the district lies in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. What’s more, the Jurassic coastline of East Devon makes up part of the only World Heritage Site in England that is recognised for its environmental importance.
