  1. I have looked at the feedback report form and found that what I have said in my letter is not what is written in the summary. I have said that a retail outlet at Sidford would be to the detriment of the town of Sidmouth. The summary says that I am concerned about the retail outlets in Sidford.
    Do you know if I can correct this as what they have written doesn’t make sense?

    • EDDC says in their letter to all people who commented, ” If you have any comments on our recording, please send them to Matt Dickens planning Policy manager before October 28th ” If you want o suggest changes, to our summary, then note that this has a limit f 255 characters”

    • EDDC has advised that the summaries of responses to the Minor Plan Amendments are now on the EDDC web site, (see separate post)..

      Matt Dickens, the Policy Planning Manager says, ” If you have any comments on our recording of the summaries, please return them to me by October 28th….. If you want to suggest changes, to our summaries, then please note that the limit is 255 characters.
