SOS is keenly following the progress of the newly-formed East Devon Alliance (see East Devon Alliance category archive on this website).
The EDA is a non-party-political pressure group (NOT a political group as erroneously reported in the Sidmouth Herald recently). It is composed of groups from all seven towns, and villages such as Feniton and Budleigh Salterton, who have joined forces to keep East Devon special. They are not against change, but aim to ensure that Every Development is Appropriate.
