Get involved in saving Sidmouth Drill Hall ..... this is a relaunch!

Dear Friends,
Just a quick update.

Most of you will have received the email from Cathy Gardner, leader of the Retain-Refurbish-Reuse campaign, giving the excellent news that the recommendation to the EDDC Cabinet on 7th Feb will be that the wholesale destruction of Port Royal is not financially viable and that the Drill Hall site should be put up for sale. Link to EDDC full agenda

While I am really pleased about this we should not be complacent. This is still only a recommendation and goes against the Consultants recommendation to spend more money on further attempts to get the whole site to market. I have extracted the relevent bit of the agenda for ease of access, it can be found on this page.

EDDC own all the land and therefore their decision is not reliant on agreement by Sidmouth town Council, but if we are to get a good outcome for the town we need to have STC actively involved in the process of saving the building for community use. They have an enormous amount of power if they chose to wield it.

I will be in touch again after the 7th Feb.

Thank you all for your support over the years, there is now a possibility that our persistence will pay off!

regards, Mary
