SIR - Re: Planning application 12/1847/MOUT
Our objections to the above planning application are as follows:
1. This development would irreparably damage the whole concept of the approach into Sidmouth.
2. The increase in the traffic around Station Road and Knowle Drive would be much to the detriment of Sidmouth and residents of Knowle Drive.
3. The destruction of ancient trees and parkland, causing irreversible damage and impact on the environment.
4. The existing Knowle offices are more than fit-for-purpose and could be improved if necessary. In comparison with council offices around the country it stands up very well.
It is absolutely shocking that this whole travesty has reached the planning application stage when the overwhelming majority of Sidmouth residents are against these plans.
- 1 Concern over Sainsburys parking restriction plans
- 2 Plan unveiled to restore 'magical' hidden garden in Sidmouth
- 3 Comedy and horror at Sidbury Manor in film being released next month
- 4 Amateur dramatic society present 'tried and tested' comedy
- 5 Is 'no dig' gardening lazy or are we just replicating nature?
- 6 Exeter cargo plane deemed 'beyond economical repair'
- 7 Get ready to dive into Sidmouth's Sea Fest
- 8 'If I were a tree' - children's writing competition invites entries
- 9 Actor James Pellow plants tree for Sidmouth Arboretum
- 10 Festival organisers join forces to boost the town's 'brilliant cultural offer'
We are being treated in a cavalier fashion by EDDC, who are looking to go ahead with a totally unnecessary development.
This is purely developer’s greed aided and abetted by EDDC with an appalling misappropriation of authority.
