Futures Forum: Sidford business park >> campaign group's latest update > collecting petition signatures
Here's the latest update from the Say No to Sidford Business Park campaign:
Campaign Update 12
We hope that you have managed to spot the almost 40 "NO Sidford Business Park" poster boards that are now on display through Sidbury and across Sidford in Two Bridges Road, School Street, Church Street and High Street. Additionally, there is a poster board facing the entrance to East Devon District Council's offices at the Knowle. There is no way that the opposition locally to the planning application can be missed!
We are very pleased with the responses that we have had on the doorsteps to our invitation to residents to sign the petition against the planning application. We are taking a short break from this exercise for a few weeks but come mid September we will complete the job!
If the planning application is not recommended for refusal by EDDC's planning officers then it will go before Councillors on the Development Managment Committee, which is the Council's planning committee by another name.
We have been told that the planning application will not be considered at the September Development Management Committee meeting. Following that there are two Committee meetings in October, on 2nd and 30th.
Dependent upon which, if any Committee meeting, the planning application is considered at, we would hope to hold a public meeting in Sidford to update you on the campaign activity to date and what is needed to do to prepare for the Committee's consideration of the application. So, watch this space!
Recently, EDDC's Landscape Architect has submitted a lengthy critique of the landscape aspects of the application. It is a lengthy 21 page document and a copy of this is attached. If you can, it is worth ploughing through this important document that damns the application's plans. Hopefully, a nail in its coffin!
Onwards and upwards!
