Save our Sidmouth is now linked with similar campaign groups across the UK, thanks to the new Save Our Green Spaces network. Guest speakers at the first conference held today, included the Chief Executive of the Campaign for the Protection of Rural England,Sean Spiers; Chair of the All Party Interest Group on Green Belts, Chris Skidmore MP; and Jacob Rees-Mogg, MP for NE Somerset.

Opponents of EDDC’s plans for a large out-of town business park, with possible retail, at Sidford Fields, will be interested in how the new network defines sustainable development: it means “development which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”.

More details posted on the SIN blog today, will be followed there shortly by a full report on the conference.
