Pam Davenport, of Berry Cottages, Ivybridge, writes: Devon County Council is closing a local road for six weeks from January 5 to lay a cable from the Langage power station to a solar farm at the old Lee Moor clay works. The ­contractor is Taylor Plant. It means that the road from Kingsway to Langage Cross and then to Beechwood Cross will be closed, creating a ­massive traffic flow down ­narrow roads to Hemerdon and Colebrook. The local zoo might lose ­customers, who will not being able to get there without taking a diversion of several miles. The villages of Cornwood and Lutton Sparkwell will also lose a vital link to Plympton and the A38. The planning application is DCC/3689/2014, which can be accessed online at the county council's website.
