Devon Land Use Framework

1st September 2021 - 31st March 2023

The Devon Land Use Framework project brings together a wide network of interested stakeholders and partner organisations across Devon to design, test, develop and review a Land Use Framework for Devon, in tandem with delivering significant improvements to the quality and accessibility of land use data sources.

The project will run for 18-months from September 2021 and the learning and outcomes will be taken forward in the implementation of the Framework on an ongoing basis.
