Another push-me pull-you situation: Sidford Fields Industrial Estate

So, at the last minute, EDDC pulled the Sidford industrial estate from its local plan. The inspector refused to take it out saying that no alternative site was available in Sidmouth.

Yet does anyone recall that not long ago, the Alexandria estate was being mooted for an Asda with many solutions being mooted for access problems to make it viable. Much more viable than heavy industrial use of the minor Sidford/Sidbury road.

Oh, how the world changes when pound signs appear in people’s eyes!
