Sea defence scheme paused for more community engagement to take place
Today, the Council issued a press release that starts:
Following a recent consultation onthe Paignton and Preston Sea defence scheme, we will be pausing theplanning application and will be seeking to re-engage with you overthe design and positionof 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).
