The Cabinet of Mid Devon District Council recommended at their meeting on 6th August that MDDC withdrew from the GESP. This has to be ratified by the full council. Cllr Barnell said,
"Yes its encouraging but, even if we withdraw from GESP, proposals for large scale development on the northern suburbs of Exeter are unlikely to go away. Full Council will be on 26th August at 6pm on Zoom. The public can attend and ask questions (need to be sent in early)."

Would you like to open your garden and raise money for Children's Hospice South West
I thought I would share details of our Open Garden event later this month, incase any of your residents might like to get involved. If you are able to share on our behalf, we would be really grateful. We can also provide a poster if needed.
During the week of 12-20 September, we are asking the local community and our fantastic supporters to open their beautiful gardens to friends and family in aid of Children’s Hospice South West. We know that during lockdown, gardens, patios & balconies became a haven for many across the region and somewhere to escape the daily stresses and strains. Simply open your garden to visitors and ask for a donation to enter. Alternatively, if you would prefer to offer free entry, you could still fundraise by offering a cream tea or refreshments for visitors to enjoy once inside.
The wonderful gardens at Little Bridge House Hospice are a firm favourite with our children all year round. They enjoy hours of fun with their family, playing with sensory and water features, specifically designed to be accessible for all.
