The Kabin Cafe, Chivenor – great cooked breakfast at a great price!

 If you’re after a great cooked breakfast in North Devon then look no further than The Kabin Cafe at Chivenor. Run by the ever-friendly Kevern Staddon (pictured) it does what in my view is the best cooked breakfast around. They’re open six days a week and not only do breakfast but also lunch, snacks and take-away. For more information see their Facebook page. The menus are below. It’s a fantastic little gem of a cafe only a few minutes from Braunton. To get there drive from Braunton to Barnstaple. Just past the Chivenor roundabout turn right onto Chivenor Industrial Estate. Go over the bridge and follow the road to the right until you come to it just on the left.

Flood update: Phase 1 Caen Street drainage works postponed

The following is a letter from Ben Byrom to traders about the postponement of the phase 1 Caen Street drainage works.

Dear Traders

Just to let you all Know the detail of this letter I have received this morning from Devon County Council Engineering department.

I have not left the letter author’s name on the letter as he asked me not to publish it. You are no doubt as disappointed as I am that this project has been postponed but I trust that when the scheme  happens it WILL BE the right one for Braunton. We do have a good relationship with the DCC team and am in regular contact with our MP who is fighting our cause in many corners and is working at getting the area director of the EA up to see us here in Braunton.

Good Morning,

Following your previous communication with my client John, I am writing to inform you of the latest developments regarding the proposed phase 1 drainage works at Caen Street, Braunton. As you may be aware, it was intended to undertake improvements to Caen Street’s drainage in two separate phases, with the phase 1 scheme comprising works within the highway and the phase 2 scheme a complementary pumping station.

Unfortunately, due to difficulties in modelling an effective phase 2 solution in the tight timeframe available, it has not been possible to develop the phase 1 scheme such that it would be sufficiently adaptable to suit the eventual phase 2 installation. We are mindful of the potential disruption that would result from the temporary closure of Caen Street and have therefore decided to postpone the phase 1 works until the full scheme proposals are more fully developed, thereby avoiding the risk of needing a second road closure during the phase 2 scheme.

As a result of the above, please be advised that the planned road closure (reference TTRO1613764) will be cancelled.

Devon County Council and our consultants will continue to investigate and develop proposals for Caen Street as a priority. We are still aiming to proceed with investigation works such as trial pits and boreholes to inform the eventual scheme. These will either be minor works on the highway in Caen Street (not requiring a closure) or will be located off of the highway in verges.

If you have any questions or concerns please get in touch.

Ben Byrom
