One thought on “Neighbourhood Plan Roadshow

  1. How on earth does EDDC think it can spend millions of pounds to redevelop the Exmouth seafront, when we can’t even get rubbish collected weekly, our police are nearly nonexistent, we have to plead with the local authorities to get pot holes filled, and so many amenities are being eliminated altogether.

    Something is seriously wrong with EDDC’s intentions and I pray they are put to a stop before we all suffer the consequences of more irresponsible planning, remember the bowling alley that took over fiver years to build?? The taxpayers are now the proud owner of that debacle.
