REVEALED: EDDC’s home after Sidmouth decided

East Devon District Council's new home at SkyPark

East Devon District Council's new home at SkyPark


East Devon District Council’s (EDDC) home after Sidmouth has been revealed – it looks set to take off for SkyPark.

The authority has rejected two sites in two in Honiton and another in Cranbrook’s high street, opting instead for the £210million business park – but has kept the existing Clyst House in Clyst St Mary as a backup.

Cabinet members voted for the move at their meeting on Wednesday and it will be rubber-stamped by full council if it is financially viable.

See a full report in tomorrow’s Sidmouth Herald.


  • What a bizarre choice. It's on the extreme edge of East Devon, with no public transport links to East Devon except via Exeter. Moving to Honiton made a little sense, SkyPark is makes no sense at all.
