  • They were on the agenda for the Devon County Council meeting last Thursday, but were deferred for debate at cabinet. They will then return to DCC council in December.

    I have seconded the motion, and myself and Julian will go along to the meeting and make our case there.

    The motion is:

    “This Council is appalled at the effect of the new NPPF document and this Government s policy of building houses as a solution to the economic crisis. This is having an adverse impact on our schools and health provision. We will continue to support the housing needs of our local communities to build houses for local working families but we will reject the destruction of the Devon countryside for the benefit of landowners, developers and short term political expediency.”
