MOUNT RADFORD LAWN
LATEST NEWS 19/9/19.

You have probably become aware of the fact that Exeter Deaf Academy has sold the option to buy Mount Radford Lawn to a developer, Burrington Estates. The Exeter Deaf Academy has just put in a planning application to build 7 detached houses which will be, "targeted at the top level executive market."

The application can be seen on the Exeter City Council website or by clicking HERE. It is carefully disguised under the name "Land off St Leonards Road". Ref: 19/1047

The St Leonards Neighbourhood Association have come up with an alternative vision for the site which can be seen by clicking the link below. This vision has been put out to the public for their opinions using a survey/petition document and has received 412 positive replies, there have been two other paper surveys which have added over 100 positive responses.

The closing date for objections is today 19/9/19, so it is too late to tell the Planning Dept. what you think of the development. There have been196 letters of objection, which is good. The date for the meeting of the Planning committee to discuss it could be 28th October, but it has not been finalised.

Remember, our new Council has said that it is a 'listening Council', let's make them listen.

MAGDALEN ROAD CHRISTMAS FAIR 2019

Saturday 7th December 2019

2pm to 6pm

I think that this is our 10th Christmas Fair, I've really lost count.

I am really grateful to all those who have made it such a success and an 'institution' over the years, the stallholders, the shops, our volunteer helpers and mainly the customers in their thousands, to them all I say a very big thank you. I must not forget to thank whoever it is that is in charge of the weather, we have never had to cancel or even put up an umbrella!

All the 50 stalls were booked up in June this year leaving about 150 people unable to have a stall. I try to ring the changes each year of both the stallholders and the entertainment and I try to keep a good mix of types of stalls. I could fill it with jewelers, street food and Gin bars!

We have booked the Devon & Somerset Fire Service band, La Vie En Rose Jazz band and Exeter School choir. There may be more.

Please come to the fair as a customer, it is really good fun.

BULL MEADOW PARK - ALMSHOUSE DEVELOPMENT UPDATE good news!!

Just after the last issue of The Neighbourhood News went to press we heard the good news that the Exeter City Council had decided to go back on their decision to sell a small piece of Bull Meadow Park to Exeter Homes Trust to enable a more convenient vehicle access to EHT’s site. I must congratulate all concerned, Councillors, the protest group and all those who let the Council know how they felt about it. A victory for local democracy and common sense.

Cllr Bialyk, Leader of the Council said that in future the Exeter City Council would be a 'listening' Council. We must all remember that!
