new green space at Station Road, Broadclyst

Local people are being invited to share their views on 25 acres of land, acquired by East Devon District Council (EDDC), for a new nature-rich, accessible green space.

The new green space is an important milestone in the creation of the Clyst Valley Regional Park. A public consultation begins 7th February for six weeks until 20th March 2023 at 4pm, on draft proposals for habitat creation, a multi-use trail, network of circular paths and a small car park.

Drop in to speak to East Devon and our consultants WSP at Broadclyst Victory Hall on Thursday 16th February from 3pm until 7pm to find out more about the proposals and have your say. A presentation followed by questions will be held at 4pm and again at 6pm. The short recorded presentation will also be available online for people who are unable to attend in person.

Cllr Geoff Jung, EDDC’s Portfolio Holder for Coast, Country and Environment, said:

We are thrilled to be able to progress plans for this new area of green space for local people to enjoy. It’s really important to us to listen to views and to accommodate these as much as possible. We had some really helpful informal consultation with local residents last autumn and we’ve altered our proposals as a result.”

Please come along, view the information and have your say.

If you are unable to attend the event, you can share your views online. When the consultation begins, the presentation and survey will be available at this link:
