The Lower Otter Restoration Project wants to work with local people and partner organisations to explore how we can preserve and improve the downstream part of the River Otter, its estuary and its immediate surroundings for future generations. We want to work with nature, rather than against it, in the face of continuing climate change.

Schematic maps of some initial proposals can be seen here. Maps and details of four options presented at a public exhibition in Budleigh Salterton on July 5th, 2017, are available on this page. We welcome any comments.
