News from Newton Poppleford

15 Sep

King Alfred Way goes to Development Management Committee (again) on Tuesday 17 September 2013.  It is mid-way through the 20 Applications that are to be decided after 2pm.

Natural England’s comments delayed consideration of Clinton Devon’s controversial planning application to build in Newton Poppleford. They were concerned about the impact of the increased use of the Common, (pebblebed heath) particularly as existing residents and villagers would no longer be able to walk the paths in the field and copse behind King Alfred Way, as they have for 20 + years.  NE suggest that residents be allowed to continue to walk there with access routes through the development.

This is how Clinton Devon Estates have  recently responded to this suggestion.

    I wonder what some of Lord Clinton’s ancestors would make of the state of the estate now? Barbed while around parts of Woodbury Common and covenants that afforded protection to local people to enjoy the Exmouth seafront flogged off. Devisive at the very least.

    There is no barbed wire on Woodbury Common – it is on Lympstone Common owned by a private individual I think – read Exmouth Journal
