Further visual images to give an indication of the possible effect on the landscape of Fords’ planning application ref 16/0669/MOUT, for Land adjacent to Two Bridges Road, Sidford (shown on right , in photo below, and in earlier SOS post today https://saveoursidmouth.com/2016/09/07/today-sidmouth-town-council-planning-committee-to-consider-fords-amended-planning-application-st-peters-church-hall-sidford-6-30pm/ ).
