By-pass call from Dunkeswell councillors

It is concerned that traffic in the village has increased by 35 per cent since a report, carried out by Parsons Brinckerhoff, was completed in 1998.
Geoffrey Sworder, chairman of the parish council, has told the Eastern Local Service Group that a by-pass should be constructed to the industrial area of Dunkeswell. The council has costed the project at �1.32m, a sum Councillor Sworder says represents "good value for money" and is "relatively cheap".
He is concerned that more traffic is going to be generated when new business units are completed and an existing industrial area is redeveloped.
