Author: National Rivers Authority South Western Region
Document Type: Monograph
The Rivers Sid and Otter Consultation Report covers a large and important catchment and the NRA is keen to draw on the expertise and interest of the communities involved. This Catchment Management Plan covers an area of approximately 283 km2 and comprises the catchments of the Rivers Sid and Otter, which drain to the South Devon coast at Sidmouth and Budleigh Salterton respectively. The catchment contains areas of high nature conservation value. It is dominated by traditional rural industries, principally agriculture but also forestry, with woodland covering approximately 21% of the catchment. Areas of major conservation interest include the East Devon Pebblebed Heaths, vegetated sea cliffs and the springline mires of the Blackdown Hills.
