Controversial plans to build a £6 million park and ride scheme on the outskirts of a Devon village have been scrapped by the council.
Residents of Ide, near Exeter, overwhelmingly rejected the scheme in a historic poll. The £1,000 referendum saw villagers vote four to one against the proposals.
Devon County Council wanted to build a 550 space carpark on land near Ide, claiming it would relieve traffic problems into the city.
But opponents were worried it would reduce the green belt, and cause noise pollution.
County councillor Alan Connett confirmed the plan had been withdrawn, after asking the council to consider the unpopular proposal earlier this week.
But, he said, the council would continue to work on the proposals which it saw as an essential part of Exeter's growth plans.
He added the council may resubmit another application "at some point in the future".

Two and a half million pounds is being invested into Bath and North East Somerset Council's Park and Rides. From September there'll be an all year round Sunday and Bank Holiday service as well as new environmentally friendly buses.
