Objections to Wetlands CPO withdrawn – Stop Line Way link will finally go ahead!
Devon County Council have told me today that the last objection to the Compulsory Purchase Order has been withdrawn, and the Department of Transport have confirmed to me that the inquiry which was due on Friday has now been cancelled. This means that the missing link in the Stop Line Way in the Wetlands will now be completed! Funds for both the purchase and the completion of the route are in the County’s budget.
Congratulations are due to all those in Seaton, Colyford and beyond who have campaigned for this over the whole of the last decade, to County Council officers for their tireless work, and to the Council’s leadership for pursuing this (although we’d like them to back the rest of the route, to Axminster, too). This was one of the subjects on which I got most correspondence during my term as county councillor and it is a great satisfaction to see it coming to fruition.

Thanks Martin. Great news re the missing link. When is the work likely to start? And what is the planned length of the project.

It is supposed to be this autumn (‘22), but I haven’t any recent information, unfortunately. I’ll see if I can find out what’s happening.
