EDDC’s plan to convert 12 acres of agricultural land on a minor road between Sidford and Sidbury into an industrial site, has raised many objections. One is the increased traffic congestion it would inevitably cause.
Existing traffic flow problems are already considerable, as shown in this recent photograph by a local resident, of the main road through Sidbury.
