How about here?

Regarding the location of Knowle premises, Sidmouth.

Recently, walking up Church Hill, Honiton, I looked into the field at St Michael’s Church and the idea came to me that this would be the ideal site for East Devon District Council to move to.

Travel would be easily accessible by rail and local buses to this development. The field, I understand, is owned by Gittisham Estate.

Design of the project: the bottom section of the field would contain most of the cars, above would be the office section in a half circle, all glass frontage with its panoramic views of the Otter Valley, with access also to an underground car park. Tower cross route to also be considered.

Honiton is almost the centre of East Devon; wherever could you have more adaptable?

Having supervised all kinds of projects throughout the UK over 40 years, one is still observant.

I know how to respect a project manager from the private sector; this is the kind of person with so much experience that should be selected to lead all local authorities.

Throughout my career I would not employ tradespersons from the public sector; they do not seem to be adaptable.

I have so many interesting stories to remember – one being Hinkley Point, where I supervised all electrical services for No. 1 Reactor.
