EDA hears that the Skypark destination still unsure. And EDDC’s Overview and Scrutiny Committee has said the justification for the move is uncertain, as Councillors have not been given sufficient evidence to make an informed decision. (How many have actually visited the Skypark site, or know that it has recently been downgraded ?)
The many questions expected tonight, from Councillors and public, include “Is the relocation move worth the harm to the economy of two major East Devon towns, Sidmouth and Honiton?”
So crunch time is this evening, (6.30pm at Knowle, Sidmouth) when Full Council will be asked to approve an extra £1,000,000 to buy land for offices at Skypark.
East Devon taxpayers’ money is being thrown at this project. If you think EDDC should attend to more urgent priorities …. See you at Knowle this evening!
