This week is the annual East Devon Heath Week, with the coming together of the RSPB, the countryside department of EDDC and Devon Wildlife Trust.
In a debate that was riddled with heckling and table banging last night, the East Devon District Council conservative group voted in favour of keeping the entangled relationship alive with East Devon Business Forum (EDBF).
A campaign to create a cycleway from Feniton to Ottery to Tipton to Sidmouth, will really get underway during September, following some brilliant initial work by year seven of the Kings School.
There were multiple shouts of ‘shame on you!’ at the end of today’s Development Management Committee meeting, following around three hours of debate on the future of the district’s towns.
Feniton is to be ‘fast-tracked’ and has identified its preferred two sites for development, it was heard today at EDDC’s Development Management Committee meeting.
The population of England and Wales has reached 56.1 million, up by 3.7 million in a decade, the 2011 Census shows.
It is the largest growth shown by any census since they began in 1801.
The Office for National Statistics says that about 55% of the population increase was the result of net migration.
The influence of the confusing tangle of councillors and major landowner/developers on East Devon Business Forum (EDBF) is of increasing concern to residents in East Devon.
EDDC planning officers are recommending that land for housing at Feniton is allocated ahead of other East Devon communities, to try and fend off continuing pressure on the village from developers.
Tipton St John was featured on the BBC’s Today Programme yesterday morning.
Residents, including Golden Lion proprietor, Franky Teissier, was interviewed about the flooding at the weekend, which affected his property.
Susan Morgan and Sylvia Blunt were interviewed about the devastating floods of the 1960s, which washed away the village’s bridge.
