Sidmouth (Salcombe Regis)

Richard Thurlow


The Sid Valley is facing difficult times with the fallout from the Pandemic, the change in both Retail and Hospitality environments and the pressure on Councils to achieve more with limited budgets. Whilst the Town Council has only limited responsibilities, it can influence outcomes through vision, innovation and drive. Your Council is now a much more forward thinking and representative organisation than it has been in the past. It is working hard to ensure that residents continue to receive the best service, whilst facing the difficult future, with new pressures of preserving the environment, and ensuring that the Valley remains attractive for visitors.

I believe that I can add value in all these issues
