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County councillor Alan Connett confirmed the plan had been withdrawn, after asking the council to consider the unpopular proposal earlier this week.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".
There were so many questions about the evidence base the county council put forward and concerns not only from residents but also Highways England, which oversees the country's national road network.
However, the plan isn't completely off the table as the county council says it will continue to work on proposals for a park and ride at Ide/Alphington and may put in a new application at some point.
If you are feeling like you want to keep eating at the moment - rest assured it's not your fault - that's according to researchers.Read the full story ›
