The Exe Estuary Forum will be meeting later this month to discuss the key issues affecting the estuary, local businesses, clubs and communities over the next year.

The forum will be discussing the impact of new marine legislation for the Exe, the shoreline management plan and Exe strategy. The role of fisheries within the Exe as well as the Exe disturbance study and the tidal turbine in the Exe will be discussed.

The forum is free and will be the chance to discuss the new legislation, studies, monitoring policy and guidance as well as the chance to feed in to studies and policies that will affect businesses, clubs and communities in the estuary.

Jim Masters of the Devon Maritime Forum will be providing an overview of the recently enacted Marine Act, including details of how this new legislation may affect local businesses and activities around the Exe. This will be followed by a presentation by Finding Sanctuary on how clubs can feed local knowledge and information into a project to create new nature reserves at sea, as part of the Marine Act.
