EDDC objects to second large retail planning application near Cranbrook

This one on the site of the current police HQ at Middlemoor. Exeter City Council is recommending refusal due to the high volume of traffic it would cause. It seems EDDC has no such worries for traffic at a large supermarket in Cranbrook.

… “An objection was also received from East Devon District Council as any approval for a bulky goods retail uses and the proposed food could be accommodated within Cranbrook town centre and so it is a sequentially preferable location, adding: “The development is likely to have a significant detrimental impact on Cranbrook town centre contrary to national planning guidance.” …”
