Campaign Update 20
Yet again, many thanks to the Sidmouth Herald for keeping the issue of the Business Park alive through its pages. Hopefully, you will have seen the two Campaign related stories on page 9 of this week's edition of the newspaper.
A brief reminder that our lobby of the District Council's Development Management Committee that was due to take place this morning, 30 October, to present our petition to the Committee Chair isn't taking place. You will recall that the District Council's legal people scuppered our plans to do this.
The Steering Group is in the process of speaking to contacts about how best we can approach any potential appeal by the applicants. As part of this we are also investigating which legal representative we could employ and at what cost.This all will take a little while to work through.
We will continue to keep you updated as matters progress.
