A public consultation is under way on Devon’s latest flood risk management strategy.
The draft document, produced by Devon County Council and partner authorities, outlines how the risk of flooding to property and infrastructure will be managed and reduced over the next six years, from 2021 to 2027.
The strategy looks at how plans for flood alleviation schemes can be developed.
The strategy also prioritises areas to be considered for investment in flood alleviation works. It currently includes Sidmouth, Exeter, Kingsbridge, Tiverton, Dawlish, Teignmouth, Exmouth, Newton Abbot, Seaton, Kingsteignton, Totnes, Bideford, Ilfracombe, Budleigh Salterton, Crediton and Okehampton.
People are invited to have their say before the consultation closes on Thursday, October 15.
