The Prince’s Countryside Fund

14 Feb

Today’s subject in the ongoing Examination of EDDC’s new Local Plan, was ‘ Environment.’  About forty members of the public turned up at the Knowle, to listen. But, once again, curiously few EDDC Councillors attended.Only  two were there today, both Independents) . Just one Councillor, Claire Wright, had registered to speak at the hearing.

Meanwhile, Waitrose is now promoting The Prince’s Countryside Fund, whose Homepage reminds us that , “The UK countryside is one of our greatest national assets. Not only does it provide 70% of our water and 60% of our food but is vital for tourism and recreation.”

Certainly true in East Devon, where the countryside’s a major moneyspinner. Better be careful not to destroy it too quickly then …by Local Plan-ning with this in mind…
