Your council



North Devon covers 425 square miles (1,102 square kilometres) of some of the best countryside in the country including 77 square miles of national park and a further 89 square miles designated as 'of outstanding natural beauty'.

However, our tranquil location produces:
  • housing problems
  • low salaries
  • a constant need to develop the local economy

Our priorities for action


  • Community leadership and well-being
  • Improving North Devon’s housing
  • Protecting and enhancing North Devon’s unique environment
  • Building a more robust local economy
  • Improving the Council’s capacity to deliver what North Devon needs
  • Shaping the future of North Devon
