EDDC Planning Officers approve EDDC Outline Plans for Knowle

1 Comment

EDDC have now recommended that Councillors should approve the EDDC Outline Planning Application for the development of the Knowle.  See
Save our Sidmouth will do everything that we can to ensure that the Development Management Committee (DMC) rejects the advice from their Planning Officers. (Public can attend the meeting at Knowle, now postponed until Tuesday Dec 8th at 2p.m. to hear how the decision is made).  We believe the advice is flawed, and SOS will be responding to EDDC Planning in that respect.
In the event of the DMC approving the OPA, we will continue to press for a call in by the Secretary of State (After many letters from constituents, Hugo Swire, MP, has recommended this action to Eric Pickles).
Meanwhile, members of the public might also like to attend the EDDC Full Council meeting on the 5th December at 6.30p.m . Councillors Stuart Hughes and Graham Troman will be asking for a decision on Knowle to be delayed. They will cite Michael Heseltine’s report on Local Government reorganisation.See EDDC could disappear (Nov 1st )

  1. I really don’t see how they can have done this. It goes against the emerging local plan and against NPPF not to mention the wildlife aspect. Crackers!
