From a correspondent:
Yesterday four residents spoke to the EDDC Planning Committee about the issues regarding the construction of the three four story tower blocks backing on to the gardens at the bottom of Clyst Valley Road.
The application was debated at quite some length. Eventually Mike Howe suggested to the Planning Committee that they visit the proposed site and see for themselves exactly where the apartment blocks are proposed to go and just how large they will be. Residents remain hopeful that the good reasons that Charlie Hopkins ( the barrister) gave for refusal will see something that is far more in keeping for a rural village put forward.
