Masterplan for the Clyst Valley Regional Park

A public consultation on proposals for new, public, green space around the Clyst Valley took place from Thursday 5th November 2020 until Monday 18th January 2021.

The consultation has now closed. All of the responses will be compiled, analysed and a final masterplan will be submitted for approval by East Devon District Council in 2021, at a public meeting.

The Clyst Valley is on the doorstep of a rapidly growing population to the east of Exeter. To make sure that local people can explore and enjoy the East Devon countryside, connecting with nature for their health and wellbeing, the Clyst Valley Regional Park masterplan sets out ideas on how it can be improved in years to come. This plan will provide a basis to seek funding for these improvements.

Some parts of the Clyst Valley are well known, such as National Trust Killerton. Other areas are not currently accessible to the public. The masterplan proposes to restore nature and historic buildings, create trails, tackle climate change and flooding.
