Sidmouth town clerk to attend waterbourne transport meeting
SIDMOUTH town clerk, Christopher Holland, will attend the first meeting of the East Devon and West Dorset Waterborne Transport Working Group at Seaton town hall next Thursday, April 19.
He told councillors improved signage for Seaton, Sidmouth and Exmouth would encourage tourism in these towns and signs to interpretation centres, linking up to cycleways were proposed.
Exmouth already has cycleway links with Exeter and there are plans to link to the old Sidmouth Junction.
“A person could catch a train from Waterloo, get off at Seaton Junction, and catch a tram. The tourist side of this is quite exciting. If we can get any funds for this then it would be great,” he said.
