Wainhomes for BERC of the Week Award?

27 Feb

BERC = Build Everywhere Regardless of Consequencess

Several readers have recommended that Wainhomes be acclaimed BERC (“Build Everywhere Regardless of the Consequences”) of the Week.

It has just been announced that they will soon apply to build 83 more houses in the beleaguered village of Feniton, taking the current total number of homes applied for (and many of which have already been approved) to 300.  The village has a Local Plan allocation of 35 homes to 2026.

In true BERC fashion they have totally ignored the  huge scale of public opposition to more development in the village, the fact that Feniton is seriously flood-prone, has a sewerage system close to collapse and a village school bursting at the seams.

After all, it’s the bottom line that counts. (Unless like Costa Coffee in Totnes you have the gumption to realise that your public reputation might be more important!)

    Unlike EDDC, the rest of us ARE all in it together as the new (non-political) East Devon Alliance shows.
