Next steps on Knowle footpaths.

Devon County Council has now acted on the Inspector’s recent ruling (See links given below). What implications does this have for East Devon District Council leaders, who plan to sell-off the site of their present HQ for residential development?

Some thoughts here, from Vice-Chair of the Knowle Residents’ Association, Kelvin Dent:

“Another important landmark along the tortuous journey to preserve rights of way at the Knowle. EDDC can, if they wish, lodge a further objection to Devon County Council’s modification order. Will the District Council continue to fight the local residents, I wonder, or will they respect the views of the Independent Inspector regarding the footpaths? Hmm. Tough one to call, that one.”

The Inspector’s report, and DCC’s follow-up, are stored on the SIN blog:
