DEVON County Council has welcomed a new survey which says that Devon is the best place to live in England. The latest issue of Country Life magazine says that Devon is "officially England's best county." Devon County Council Leader Cllr Brian Greenslade said: "We're pleased and proud to receive such glowing recognition. This is confirmation of what everyone in Devon has known for a long time and it's why we're so proud to fly our Devon flag. "What is very welcome is that the rest of the country gets to hear what is so good about our beautiful county, and that is particularly important in the current economic climate. "We're delighted that Devon is getting the praise it rightfully deserves and that the county council's efforts to make Devon even greener are recognised. We're more than happy to share it with visitors to allow them to experience what we're lucky enough to appreciate here every day.
