The plans look at how to integrate the car-parking with bringing some character back to the Ham Lane area - that is, the sort of 'mixed development' which has been championed by all parties:
Futures Forum: East Devon and affordable housing: November 2012
Futures Forum: Plans for Port Royal: VGS and PRSG
Futures Forum: Plans for Port Royal: mixed development
At present area is dominated by cars so I have tried to reinstate East Street by introducing mixed use accommodation.
This will bring businesses and people into the town rather than on the Sidford Fields.
