I read with great interest Honiton Town Council's statement on the front page of last week's Midweek Herald regarding the choice, or lack of it, for a site for allotments in Honiton. This article was particularly interesting in view of the previous week's items about the increasing difficulty of finding places to walk dogs in the town, and the unacceptable saga of the Kings Road crossing. Our town council is proposing to remove one of the few green open spaces in Honiton available to dog walkers by putting allotments on two-thirds of the much used "dog field" north of Battishorne Way. East Devon District Council is planning to spend £25,000 of lottery money disrupting the natural nature reserve south of Battishorne Way by turning it into a council-made reserve. And to crown this ill-thought out plan, they are going to provide a pedestrian crossing linking the allotments to the nature reserve - when we have been waiting for many years for a safe crossing to be installed over the busy A35 Kings Road.
