New planning application by Gilpin


 Public Meeting

Buckfastleigh Town Hall

Wednesday 15th January 7.30pm

For those who are not aware, over Christmas Gilpin Demolition submitted a new planning application to Teignbridge District Council. The application Reference is: 13/03520/MAJ

The link on the Teignbridge site is:

The exact nature of the proposed activities is unclear at present and we have very little time to object – Teignbridge has informed us that the closing date for objection is the 17th January, so we are having a public meeting to discuss what we know about the plan and we will also be having a letter writing session on the night. Please come along – this is really important and we have very little time to act.

Our concern is that Gilpin is planning to industrialise the site – effectively by the back door. In submitting the plan to Teignbridge it will not have the same level of scrutiny that we saw at the Public Inquiry, so it is up us to find out as much as possible about the plan and about what we can do to object. We are already working hard on this, but we need your help in writing letters as the more that are sent, the stronger impression it will make on Teignbridge.

Please come…

and tell all your friends and forward this email to friends and relatives who live in and around the town.

Best wishes

Julia Wilton – co-chair
