Planning Inquiry over Sidford business park plans concludes

The three-day inquiry was held last week over the outline scheme that would see 8,445sqm of employment space built on the outskirts of the village.

The inquiry was shown five videos that showed traffic jams caused along the A375 as a result of lorries getting stuck trying to pass each other.

A decision on whether to allow the appeal is set to be made by the Autumn. If the appeal was allowed, then a further planning application would need to be submitted for the details of the scheme.
