    No, Mr xxx, what is unfortunate is that you and the other objectors chose to spend 9 months fighting a perfectly valid application rather than engaging with us at the appropriate time to fully understand the application and what was on offer.

    May I respectfully suggest that this is a lesson learned for the future, that its better to engage and negotiate rather than just object.

    For the record, this is not as you suggest me being unhelpful,  but as a matter of company policy we do not send out technical drawings, plans or reports to third parties.

    As with my fellow Feniton residents, I have spent nine months of this year fighting to prevent this development.

    I shall just have to go down to the EDDC offices in Sidmouth. You could presumably provide this information very easily via your computer. It is unfortunate that you will not be more helpful.

    I am sorry I am not prepared to provide piece meal information by email

    The plans we have are exactly the same as the approved plans on the website and are also available in hard copy at the council.

    Thank you.

    What is Highway land and by how much will the road be widened both in terms of depth and distance.

    The road will be widened on Highway land and within the development land. The front hedge will be set back for visibility splays approx. 45-50 m to the east as per the approved plans. The Oak trees are not affected.

    I trust that this now answers your queries.

    It is very difficult to identify any real detail in the EDDC planning documents.

    I can see an 1.8m earth and stone wall extending east from the site access. How far east does it extend and is it on both sides ie will the existing Devon bank be changed?

    There will be no footpath running along the road to the east

    All the approved plans for the development can be viewed on the council website

    Hello Mr xxxx

    Our development does not affect/impinge on the trees you have mentioned. And they are well outside the development area.

    I do not therefore consider it necessary to meet on site.

    The plans for the development can be viewed on the council website.

    Dear Adrian

    Thank you discussing this with me earlier. I live at the xxxx of the proposed development. My property is xxxxx.

    I am just concerned about the proposed boundaries at the north and east of the proposed development.

    There are two large oaks that must remain and the building conditions prescribe no changes in ground level or excavations shall take place within the crown spreads of retained trees or within half the height of the trees whichever is the greater.

    If you are able to describe or better still show me what is intended for the proposed development boundary in the north east corner then I would appreciate that.

    Naturally I would like to meet a Wainhomes representative on the proposed site as soon as possible.

    Thank you

    yours sincerely
