The chief executive of the Environment Agency has visited Exmouth, following an invitation from East Devon MP Sir Hugo Swire.

Sir James Bevan was invited to the town due to the Environment Agency’s role in the proposed redevelopment of the seafront. He also visited Sidmouth and Tipton St John.

Sir Hugo said: “Getting the redevelopment of Exmouth seafront right is so important for the town. I hope that meeting and briefing the chief executive will help the local team to develop an even better relationship with the Environment Agency.

‘I know that Sir James was also very much impressed by Exmouth’s flood defences on the seafront.”
