Compulsory Purchase Order made for land for cycle route in Seaton Wetlands

Posted on

I’m pleased to be able to report that the County Council has now made a CPO for the land needed for the ‘missing link’ on the Stop Line Way cycle route through the Wetlands. The order, The Devon County Council (Seaton to Colyford Multi-Use Path) Compulsory Purchase Order 2021, will be published in the Midweek Herald on Wednesday; the land concerned is shown on this map.

I’m disappointed that negotiations with the landowner did not produce a result, and I should warn that the CPO process could still take some months, but this is progress. I wish to pay tribute to the officers who have pursued this. I know that many people in Seaton, Colyford and the entire area will be pleased.

    Very positive news, badly needed to take cycles off the extremely busy and narrow road, some good news for 2021 !

    Where are the access points going to be? There should be one near Gravel Lane/Riverdale because this is where many people walk through to Colyford Road and walk along the dangerous section with no pavement that leads to the Seaton Cemetary entrance to the Wetlands and have to cross the road on a blind corner.
