• People power saves Redbridge at Harpford!

    14th January 2021 | News | Claire
  • Huge thanks to over 2,000 local people who signed a petition myself and Newton Poppleford EDDC councillor, Val Ranger organised for Redbridge, at Harpford.
    The bridge, an important part of the East Devon Way was set to be permanently closed on safety grounds last autumn.
    Thanks to the strong support from local people, Devon County Council has funded rock armouring which has protected the bridge’s foundations and it is now expected to last for years to come, although a long-term solution will still need to be found, as the River Otter continues to erode the banks.
    Thank you to everyone who took time to sign and share the petition. It just shows that people power can work!
