The Sid Vale Association, the Sidmouth Chamber of Commerce, the Sidmouth Hospitality Association, the Vision Group for Sidmouth, Sidmouth Licensed Victuallers Association, The Knowle Residents Association, and the Sidmouth Drill Hall Campaign have joined forces to form “Save Our Sidmouth” (SOS). SOS co-ordinates the activities and acts as an umbrella group for all these organisations in their review and comments on East Devon District Council, (EDDC), plans for the Sid Vale.
Our main objective is to ensure that EDDC take into account the wishes and comments of civic groups and the residents of the town in the preparation of the EDDC Local Plan. This is the plan that determines the development strategy for the next 15 years for the Council area. It has specific proposals for Sidmouth and Sidford, which a great many residents and local organisations take issue with.
Our website will keep you up to date with our campaign. We’ll be posting to our blog here, and also maintaining a list of key dates and upcoming events and useful documents.
If you have any ideas that we could use to help rebut EDDC plans and arguments, please contact us at email@example.com.
We are also seeking suggestions for how we might raise funds to employ a Planning Consultant.
