Councillor whose group enabled Sidford Business Park now wants traffic cuts!

EDDC’s Hypocrite of the Year Award should go to Tory councillor Stuart Hughes, whose Tory group when it was in power sneaked in permission for Sidford Business Park to be included in the Local Plan at the last minute. Now he is “trying” to get a vehicle weight restriction in the village!

In 2018 he said it was pointless trying to stop the development on Highways grounds:

Background from 2016 when he and his fellow councillors acted positively and some might say disingenuously to support the business park in Sidford:

Rumour has it that Councillor Hughes is spending much less time in his area these days so try to catch him when you see him if you want to give him your opinion!
