NICELY PUT: Praise was reserved for the “eloquence” of campaigners who spoke at the meeting at which plans to redevelop Knowle were rejected.
Town councillor John Dyson told colleagues that the arguments put forward by 12 members of the public were “frankly impressive”. He said the cases presented “swayed” development management committee members. Chairman Stuart Hughes added: “Let’s just hope, not only for Sidmouth’s but East Devon’s sake, we can now move on instead of being under a cloud of this issue of Knowle.
FIRE: Controlled blazes in two different areas covering half-an-acre of Sidmouth’s Fire Beacon Hill were carried out by the RSPB last Tuesday, March 5.
EXTENSION: A proposed single-storey rear extension at Roslyn in Cheese Lane, Sidmouth, has been approved.
APPROVED: A single-storey side extension, and summerhouse in the front garden, at Blue Ridge in Elm Way, Sidford, have been given the go-ahead.
