Devon CC have proposed a£180m recovery plan to help overcome the impact of foot-and-mouth disease.
The council plans to set up a special unit to concentrate on overcoming the effects of the disease. The unit will develop and implement The Devon recovery plan.
At the moment, the 10-point plan for the area - which is second only to Cumbria in the number of foot-and-mouth cases - is out for consultation in the
community.
The council will be lobbying the government for additional resources to help realise the plan's objectives.
Chief executive Philip Jenkinson said in a report to the council's executive committee: 'Concerted action is important. That is why it is vital that as many organisations as possible sign up to, and endorse, the recovery plan.'
-The Devon Recovery Plan can been accessed through the council's information website on www.devon.gov.uk/homepage.

-Training for workforce affected by the epidemic
-Regeneration
-Assessment of environmental impact and schemes to combat it
-Agriculture development programme.
