On Tuesday 30th October, East Devon District Council’s Development Management Committee approved a planning application for a new three metre-wide surfaced multi-user trail at Clyst St Mary, from the bridge over the Grindle Brook at Winslade Park, to Kenniford Farm in Clyst St George.
A total length of 1.1 kilometres, it will form part of the Clyst Valley Trail. When complete the Trail will be a 13-km (8 mile) commuting and leisure route, linking the Exe Estuary Trail at Darts Farm with Killerton House and Park by way of an existing multi-use trail from Broadclyst.
Exeter and Greater Exeter food and drink businesses have come together to sign up to an exciting new initiative which is set to place Exeter on the map as a major new foodie destination.
Food and drink producers, retailers and restaurateurs gathered at an exclusive event at Exeter Cookery School to find out more about the new Exeter Food and Drink Trail. Created by Visit Exeter, the trail aims to embrace businesses that celebrate local produce, both in the dishes that they create, and the artisan produce that they harvest, craft or sell.
A new walking and cycling trail in Cranbrook has been officially opened.
The “Cranbrook Discovery Trail: Long Orchard” has been developed by Devon County Council, East Devon District Council, Cranbrook Town Council and Cranbrook New Community Partners Consortium to encourage residents to explore their local area.
As a designated “Healthy Town” it also provides local adults and children in Cranbrook with an opportunity to stay active.
A walking and cycling trail is being launched in Cranbrook next month (January) to help local residents explore the area.
The “Discover Cranbrook: The Long Orchard Trail” is being established by Devon County Council, East Devon District Council, Cranbrook Town Council and Cranbrook New Community Partners Consortium to encourage people to get active and find out what’s on their doorstep.
Starting at the entrance of the Country Park at Long Orchard, the trail includes five posts which feature different rubbings – four around the park and a fifth at Cranbrook Train Station.
A bid has been submitted to the Government for Coastal Communities Funding for the Dawlish to Teignmouth section of the Teign Estuary Trail.
Following a public consultation earlier this year, Devon County Council has developed a preferred option for the scheme which Dawlish Town Council and Teignbridge District Council are being asked to consider.
Just over 150 responses were received during the consultation. Of those who responded, 71% either supported or strongly supported improving pedestrian and cycling facilities through Dawlish.
