Title

Sea defence scheme paused for more community engagement to take place

Date

Friday 14 May 2021

Description

Today, the Council issued a press release that starts:

Following a recent consultation on the Paignton and Preston Sea defence scheme, we will be pausing the planning application and will be seeking to re-engage with you over the design and position of any future sea defence structure.

 

Ignoring the typo ('re-engage' should read 'engage'), this is due to real community feedback. Well done all!

The Council is now asking for your feedback on how to do a consultation: here. (Yes, really).

As of January 2022, nothing has been done about this.
