And last week the area manager for Sustrans, Paul Hawkins, presented the research and proposals to Sidmouth Town Council:

Futures Forum: Cycling: latest plans presented at Sidmouth Town Council
Paul will be leaving Sustrans on Weds 18th June - and would like some feedback about the feasibility study. To quote from Paul:
We have set in place a programme of finishing off outstanding work that we are committed to that I will be focussing on over the next working days...
The key point is that the report says pretty much everything I can apart from the landowner contact log details which are lodged with Devon County Council.
The presentation to Sidmouth Town Council seemed to be well received last night with support for the concept of the route and a keenness to look at a route in sections and at what sections can be done sooner rather than later, as per the recommendation of the report, whilst recognising that a whole route will take many years.
May I suggest that you pass out my email and telephone number to any of your members who have specific or general queries regarding the report so that I can answer these before 18th June?
