North Devon Link Road Petition

cropped-smbaThe tragedies that have unfolded on the North Devon Link Road have sadly again highlighted the need for upgrading our main arterial road.

DevonLive.com have started a petition:

‘For too long the North Devon Link Road has been blighted by serious and even fatal accidents caused by the fact that there are few opportunities for overtaking.

A package of measures are in place to make the road safer, but no official timetable exists for the works and a lengthy Government preferred scheme process still has to be gone through.

We want the Department of Transport to get on with the works without delay, and publish a timetable that would give Devon residents and visitors to the county confidence that the works will be undertaken.’

Sign the Petition


 

A LETTER TO US FROM PETER HEATON-JONES MP REGARDING THE A361

Following on from conversations with members and other businesses in our area we were asked to lobby our local MP regarding the disrupted use of the Link Road during July and beyond.  A copy of the letter received from Peter Heaton-Jones MP can be found here.

SMBA / Calvert Trust Raffle and The North Devon Show

cowsWe would like to thank local businesses for their support and for donating raffle prizes to the Calvert Trust fund raiser we were going to be involved with at the North Devon Show.

It was a big shame that the North Devon weather prevented the show from happening this year. South Molton business Association had geared up to promote members and other businesses in our area at the event. We are now looking for alternative opportunities…

We are talking with Calvert Trust regarding other ways to work with them, to raise funds and promote South Molton businesses.
