Subject to approval by the Devon County Council cabinet, the scheme is scheduled to take place during this financial year.

Details are included with the agenda for the East Devon highways and traffic orders committee (HATOC), of which I am a member, which takes place on Monday, 24 June, at 10am, EDDC offices, Sidmouth.

£30,000 is allocated for the scheme, which will connect the pavement by McColls with a pavement that ends several metres further up West Hill Road.

The project has long been a community priority and once completed, will hopefully encourage more children to walk to school and residents to walk to the shop.
