This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear East Devon District Council,

You reported in the Sidmouth Herald last week and this week that the cost so far of relocation of the Knowle to Honiton cost around £244,000.

In July 2012 you said that EDDC had been working on this project for 4 years and thus expressed surprise at the public's sudden interest and concern over the move.

Please provide a breakdown of how you arrived at the figure of £244,000 accumulated over the past 4 years for the cost of relocation.

Yours faithfully,

Val Ranger

East Devon District Council
