Hands off our playing field!

SIR - Once again, we read about the Sports Ground, given to the people of Bideford, and taken over by the King George V Playing Fields, being considered for a retail site, to be investigated by North Devon Plus. But it seems no councillors at committee

SIR - Once again, we read about the Sports Ground, given to the people of Bideford, and taken over by the King George V Playing Fields, being considered for a retail site, to be investigated by North Devon Plus.

But it seems no councillors at committee meetings of Torridge District Council are aware this is being done.

Come off it, some councillors or officers must have given them the remit to do this!

Please, before North Devon Plus, spend loads of money will they first get the report from Torridge District Council via the the EnvironmentAgency referring to the FLOOD PLAIN in Bideford. It should make interesting reading!
