Devon MPs urged to support clarification of traffic definition “severe” in planning policy

Sunday, 26 July 2015 0 Comments by Claire

This might sound like one of the less engaging blog titles I have written, however, as anyone who has fought a major planning application since the introduction of the national planning policy framework (nppf), knows, one of the worst aspects of the entire flawed developer friendly document, is its hopelessly and deliberately vague traffic policy.

If you are free today at 12.30pm and care about the loss of Ottery and Axminster hospitals, as well as minor injury services at Ottery, Axminster, Seaton and Sidmouth, please come along, with your placard preferably, to Newcourt Community Centre, where a group of us are demonstrating before a meeting of the Northern, Eastern and Western clinical commissioning group (NEW Devon CCG).

The CCG will make its decision at their meeting this afternoon.

Please come along and show the CCG how much you care about retaining local hospital services.

Planning cttee approve Straitgate Farm for consultation as an allocation in the Devon minerals plan

Wednesday, 15 July 2015 0 Comments by Claire

Devon County Council’s development management committee have approved the allocation of Straitgate Farm, on the edge of Ottery for consultation, in the emerging minerals plan.

Myself and Cllr Christine Channon, who represents Aylesbeare, Otterton and other villages near Budleigh Salterton addressed councillors.

Cllr Channon pointed out the traffic implications and that on page 148 of the agenda papers, officers suggested that in the event that Straitgate is undeliverable, a site at Uffculme would have adequate resources to enable sand and gravel supply to be maintained for the plan period.
