Back in March the East Devon Conservatives circulated a leaflet entitled “In Touch”.
This heavily criticised the independent EDDC for putting up car parking charges, without consultation, thereby risking the recovery of High Street businesses, hospitality venues and the tourism industry. It said:
“We (the Tories) believe East Devon deserves better. We won’t prioritise council budgets over the communities we’re elected to serve. Your local Conservatives continue to work hard at every level of local government alongside our members of Parliament to make East Devon an even better place to work, visit and visit.”
Now notices have been posted of price hikes by (Conservative) Devon County Council for roadside parking in the East Devon Seaside towns of Budleigh, Exmouth, Seaton and Sidmouth but where is the Hue and Cry this time?
One down one to go!
