USERS of the Taw-Torridge estuary are being asked for their views on how it should be managed in the future.
The estuary is the only one on North Devon's coastline and is a site a great natural beauty as well as being of cultural interest and a centre of economic activity.
Its management plan set up more than 10 years ago was the first of its kind in the country, but is now in need of an update.
Chrissie Dukes, recently qualified in Marine Science, is undertaking a special project for the North Devon Biosphere Reserve and the area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to help review the plan.
She said: "We are looking for groups, companies or organisations that use the Taw-Torridge estuary and individuals with a love of this unique environment. We need people to tell us what is loved or loathed about the estuary and to share what has been achieved through its combined management."
To do this, a public consultation event is being held at Bideford Angling Club headquarters in Honestone Street, Bideford, from 2pm to 7pm on Monday, March 8.
