26 days to local elections – today’s picture

Today’s picture is of how a map of a proposed Jurassic Coast National Park could look.

Dorset is enthusiastic about it and welcomes it. Independents on the district council are also enthusiastic and welcome it. The ruling Tory majority on East Devon District Council has ruled it out.

Why?

Because they would lose control of planning:

There are some who woyld say they never had control of planning and others who would say they have too much; few would say they have it about right.
