Money must be set aside for road improvements in Exminster, Kenton and Starcross, says councillor
County councillor Alan Connett has asked the Government's planning inspector to ensure money is set aside for road safety improvements in Exminster, Kenton and Starcross when an appeal for up to 350 houses in Dawlish starts in April.
The plans included £143,000 from the developer to Devon County Council which wants to improve the outbound lane at Countess Wear -- but Cllr Connett says he is concerned that nothing was included to upgrade the A379 for the three villages.
He has sent a two page submission to the independent Planning Inspectorate pointing out that "350 new houses in Dawlish will mean extra traffic on the A379 through the villages, which already face traffic problems".
He added: "It seems the county council is bagging-up money from house builders in Dawlish for projects in Exeter and not looking at what is needed locally. It's time our villages were top of the priority list. New houses in Dawlish will make the A379 busier and we need local road and safety improvements too."
