Opinion: ‘EDDC can vote against employment land again’

‘It may need another ‘campaign’ to influence local councillors, but it can be done.’

It’s very simple, just because the proposed Sidford business park is in the Local Plan does not mean that it has to go ahead. EDDC voted against it before and can vote against it again, when and if a planning application comes forward.

It may need another ‘campaign’ to influence local councillors, but it can be done.

In my opinion, Alexandria Road is the obvious alternative, so let’s just go for it. That’s local democracy!
