East Devon District Council (EDDC) is working with the Environment Agency (EA) to upgrade the sea and estuary defences in Exmouth through a partnership project.  The project aims to align the Environment Agency’s flood improvement and EDDC’s wider coastal regeneration plans for the same areas outlined in the Exmouth Vision master plan.


Funding for detailed design and construction was approved in 2017, and the EA are leading this next stage of the project to implement these plans. You can find out about current project progress at
