The weekend's 'sit-down' in the Ham park seems to have gone well:
Futures Forum: Grand Picnic on the Ham > Sunday 27th August
From the Save Our Sidmouth site:
Perfect day for the 3Rs picnic on The Ham | Save Our Sidmouth
And from the East Devon Watch site:
SIDMOUTHIANS ENJOY HAM PICNIC – MORE SIGNATURES FOR PORT ROYAL “RETAIN, RE-USE, REFURBISH” PETITION
29 AUG 2017
Sunday’s picnic in celebration of The Ham open space took place in bright Sidmouth sunshine, suiting the mood of the organisers, and catching the attention of a steady stream of passers-by.
Information sheets showing the Scoping Study single ‘Proposal’, as displayed at the public consultation, were the subject of much discussion and concern from locals and visitors alike. More signatures were eagerly added to the paper copies of the 3Rs petition, calling for Retain-Refurbish-Reuse, an alternative plan for Port Royal. ..with the numbers already far outweighing the signatures collected online.
To view the petition, search 38 degrees Sidmouth Retain.
It will be handed in to the joint Scoping Study partners, East Devon District Council, and to Sidmouth Town Council which next meets on Monday 4th September, 6.30pm at Woolcombe House, Woolcombe Lane. Public can attend the meeting.
