    1st November 2012 | News | Claire
  • “Thank you and Cllr Claire Wright for your recent email about the Planning Inspector`s decision and to allow Wainhomes permission to build 50 homes at Feniton.

    “As you will appreciate, this falls within the constituency of Tiverton and Honiton and therefore, Neil Parish, to whom you also wrote, is taking the lead though I have offered him my support should he require it. I am aware that he has written to the Minister at the Department for Communities and Local Government and will let me have sight of any reply he receives.

    “I will, nevertheless, forward your concerns to Eric Pickles, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, and will let you know how he responds in due course.”

    A reply from Mr Boles, new planning minister, is awaited with interest.
