As one of the many valuable products from the Living with a Changing Coast (LiCCo) project, the 2014 State of the Exe Estuary was prepared to provide easy access to the information available on the current status of the Exe Estuary.

Using this information it is possible to see how the Estuary has changed in the past, and to describe its present condition. The report highlights the changing pressures, natural processes, varied uses and quality of the Estuary, and how they interact with each other. Equipped with this information, stakeholders of the Estuary will have a good understanding of the potential long-term consequences of their current actions and can make more informed decisions, which will benefit the Estuary and its users.
