The council wants to sell off a Sidmouth nature reserve – and luckily the Sid Vale Association are willing to take it off them – as reported by the Herald:
SVA announce plans to acquire Sidmouth nature reserve
East Devon District Council placed a notice in last week’s Herald stating it intends to dispose of the 8.39 acres at the Knapp nature reserve in Station Road.
The Sid Vale Association (SVA) has confirmed it has agreed terms to acquire the reserve from the District Council and hope it will go through in the next few months.
And a nice little place it is too:

Here is the District Council’s page for the nature reserve;
And here is the County Council one
Strangely both of them say the land belongs to the County Council and is only managed by the District Council …. so how did EDDC post the sale in these words?
We hope the SVA has good a good conveyancing solicitor.
