Here we are the end of September and once again the weather is on the change...well it was nice to have almost two weeks of summer!!
Good news on the Sidmouth - Sidford cycle way with work on the final phase beginning in October with completion due by the end of December. I am heartened by those who have contacted me and said how much they appreciate the facility which takes cyclists away from the busy A375 and A3052. The link to Fortescue will also be of considerable benefit to those living to the east of the Sid.

Off to a special birthday party this evening.... Nelson's 250th of course he won't be there but you never know he may be there in spirit.
I am at present working on several major projects for Sidmouth and am keeping my fingers crossed that will be successful. I am supporting a bid for airport funding towards the renovation  costs of Kennaway House (formerly Church House) which will be going before the Investing in Devon committee in October. I am also keeping up the pressure on saving Alma bridge....we can't let this asset be washed away by the sea can we??

I am really excited about the prospect of the much needed Stowford Rise Community Centre being built within the next 18 months..... I was over the moon when I received the 250k from the airport money (Investing in Devon). With the 106 agreement money from the revamped/bigger Waitrose  and other interested parties the funding is almost there. I am also delighted that I have been instrumental in getting the Children and Young People's Services to also get involved and that the Community Centre will also be the HQ for the Sidmouth Children's Centre. These centres are places where families with children under 5 years old can get services. With an additional 150 more houses for our young people being built on the remaining land at Stowford Rise this will be the area where the vast amount of future youngsters will hail from.

There is no doubt in my mind that the status quo should be an option and indeed the recommendation put forward by the Boundary Committee when they make their final recommendation to the Government.....a unitary Devon is far too big, the financial case hasn't been put and surely can't stack up. Under a Unitary Devon members will be stretched to the limit with very little free time, as a District and County member I work many long hours every week not only attending meetings but also on case work. I really enjoy it .... if I didn't I wouldn't do it. As a Community leader I provide not only a strong voice for the electorate in my division/ward but also listen and support my fellow members and their electorate on many issues...... if you haven't signed my Prime Ministers petition calling for the retention of the status quo in Devon then click on this link and make your feelings known. http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/devonstatusquo/

I believe that following the recent crashes on Trow Hill Sidford the Highways team at County Hall should look very seriously at the request that I made over 12 months ago to extend the 40mph limit further east beyond the entrance to Trow Hall as part of their review of speed limits throughout East Devon. I am unsure of the severity of the crash last Saturday evening however it looks as though the vehicle was travelling at far greater speeds for that particular part of the road. I also believe that the review should also take on board my other request for a 50mph limit to be introduced between Trow Hill and the start of the 40mph limit which takes you down into Colyford. The 50mph section introduced on the A3052 between Halfway House and Cat and Fiddle works extremely well and has resulted in fewer crashes.
