Queen’s Green Canopy
The Environment Agency, on behalf of the Lower Otter Restoration Project, has been granted a virtual plaque after planting 225 trees to form part of the Queen’s Green Canopy which marked the 2022 Platinum Jubilee.
Funding for the initial development phase was provided by the Environment Agency and Clinton Devon Estates.
The overall construction cost of the project is £27 million.
£6.6 million of this funding was provided by the EU’s Interreg France (Channel) England Programme as part of Project PACCo - Promoting Adaptation to Changing Coasts - which is also supporting work in Normandy in France to increase connectivity between the River Saâne and its floodplain.
The majority of the funding for the construction of the Lower Otter Restoration Project has come from the Environment Agency, with Clinton Devon Estates providing in-kind contributions and making 55 hectares of land available and supporting visitor infrastructure costs.
In addition, South West Water has also contributed approximately £1 million for upgrades to sewerage infrastructure.
