Copy of letter sent to East Devon District Council.

“Several weeks ago I made some notes about the proposed housing development at Cloakham Lawns, Axminster.

Since then I have read with interest the various articles and letters in the press.

So now my letter comes to underline what I am hearing from all directions.

The need of a road to relieve the congestion already in the town centre.

Another 400 cars will create unbelievable congestion.

Where will the residents times 400 go for medical and dental care?

Where will the children of 400 homes go to school ?

Where will people from 400 homes do their shopping ?

There is no denying that additional homes are needed but WHERE is the planning and infrastructure for them?”
