“Anyone who has a ruler” can check mistakes made by EDDC’s relocation team, Full Council told.

The question from the public at last night’s Full Council meeting, was from Richard Eley, of Save Our Sidmouth. He called for an apology from EDDC to Sidmouth resident Robin Fuller, whose study of the modern buildings at Knowle had shown that the size had been seriously understated by the Office Relocation team led by Richard Cohen. Mr Fuller was right, and EDDC should therefore apologise for not taking his findings into account. The buildings were “40% larger than you were told”, claimed Mr Eley. This was not a small error, he continued, and warned, “Imagine what a judge at a Judicial Review would make of that”.
