Environment services in Devon

This area covers a range of local services which protect and enhance Devon’s communities. This includes waste disposal and local recycling facilities.

In addition, we have a range of important Devon-wide planning functions to guide investment and development. These include planning for the future in waste and minerals and managing projects to enhance the environment and landscape.

With a total budget of £68m in 2013/14 our main challenges include:

  • Driving value from existing long term contracts for waste disposal
  • A reduced capacity for future major capital development and environmental work
