SIDMOUTH residents will have the chance to discuss their vision for the future of housing in Sidmouth at a public meeting next Friday, October 30.

Organised by the Vision Group for Sidmouth, the meeting at St Francis Hall, Woolbrook, from 6.30pm, will consider the sustainable development of the town and Sid Valley.

Secretary Jeremy Roberts said: "Housing is becoming quite a hot issue in Sidmouth and, of late, we've had several people approach us asking us to look into this.

"We've therefore decided to call another meeting to which all are welcome to discuss these issues and propose ways of carrying any actions forward."

There will be topics such as whether the AONB under threat, if Woolbrook has become the dumping ground for Sidmouth's problems, and whether affordable housing really affordable.

Questions on whether council tax should be raised on second homes, how to build more sustainable homes and how many empty homes there are, will also be considered.
