The campaign group saying No to the proposed industrial estate at Sidford has produced a couple of newsletters:
Futures Forum: Sidford business park >>> campaign group's first update
Futures Forum: Sidford business park >>> campaign group's second update
Here's the next installment:
Campaign Update 3
After a good weekend we hope that you are getting around to finalising your letter of objection to the business park, which needs to be received by East Devon District Council by this coming Friday, 15 June.
WRITE TO: Planning Central, East Devon District Council, Knowle, Sidmouth, EX10 8HL or email: PlanningCentral@eastdevon.gov.uk.
QUOTE PLANNING REFERENCE: 18/1094/MOUT: Outline Application for the development of Employment Facilities on Land Adjacent to Two Bridges, Two Bridges Road Sidford.
Please do not copy/paste comments from others, as identical responses do not count! If you have a personal story, or photos to back up what you say, then please include them.
To help jog your memory (if required) we attach a set of summary slides which give the key issues that are worth including in your letter. As you know its best that your letter sets out in your own words why you are objecting to the planning application. So we will leave it to you to put any of the attached issues into your own words.
See: Futures Forum: Sidford business park >>> How to comment on the planning application > before 15th June
Thank you for all of the kind and supportive responses that we have had to our previous Campaign Update emails. Please keep sharing your thoughts with us.
One of the campaign's supporters has emailed with the following additional thoughts that they have included in their objection letter - the traffic through Sidford and through to Sidbury is already excessive travelling too fast and putting walkers lives at risk the impact of the business park will only make this situation worse. We couldn't have put it better!
Have you printed off yet a poster that we attached to our previous Campaign
Update? If you have yet to do so, please do and also make sure you print off a few extra copies for use by your family and friends. Having a visible local presence through the display of a poster can make all the difference! Both a colour and a black and white version of the window poster are again attached for your convenience and use.
