Of “rapacious developers” , or why Feniton matters..nationwide!

9 Jan
Today’s national news reinforces the message that Feniton’s case is not just about problems with flooding of the watery kind. It is the gaping loopholes in the governments’ planning policy which are devastating the landscape, as senior Tory MP, Nadhim Zahawi, and former minister David Heath, firmly point out:   http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/hands-off-our-land/10559732/Coalitions-legacy-could-be-harm-to-countryside-No-10-adviser-warns.html
Also today, Shaun Spiers, Chief Executive of the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE), has acknowledged the implications of the Super Inquiry now going on in the small (at the moment) East Devon village, where a big protest march will take place this Saturday morning. In an e-mail today to Mike Temple of the East Devon Alliance (joint-organisers of the march), he says, ‘ Good luck with the Feniton Inquiry, it’s a really important case as I’m sure you know ‘.
And SIN readers will remember that Sir Max Hastings has already sent the following message of support to Dr John Withrington of Fight for Feniton’s Future: ‘Feniton’s campaign represents the struggle of us all for the rights of local communities to decide their own future, and for the English countryside’. Best wishes and good luck, Max Hastings’.
See you at the march on Saturday? (Feniton march Jan 2014)
