A summary from a report in today’s Sidmouth Herald ( p.11) is given below:
Planners reject homes scheme (re 1 Laundry Lane, Sidford)
“Plans to build five houses on the northern edge of Sidford have been rejected.”
The application had been recommended for refusal by officers who said the loss of an employment site and the risk of flooding were the main issues.
Part of the development would replace an ‘established employment building’ and private storage units and workshops, said the officer.
The remainder would have been on an undeveloped garden.
Save Our Sidmouth followers may well ask, “Now if we were to apply the same logic to the proposed development the other side of the fence at Sidford or to development of the Knowle…?”
