Devon County Council Highways has finally signed off the scheme for over 30 new tourism and traffic signs which the Town Council has been negotiating for over a year. The scheme will mean that new attractions like the Wetlands and Seaton Jurassic are finally properly signposted. The scheme has been carefully integrated to make everything easy to find for visitors coming into the town, and should be implemented this spring before the main tourist season.
People often complain about the Town Council but this scheme is a tribute to the persistence of councillors, who have brought partner organisations together and overcome difficulties in raising the full cost of the scheme. Devon County Council has contributed the majority of the £20,000 funding, and I have contributed £1000 from my County Councillor’s locality budget to help fill the funding gap.
