Buckfastleigh has won the appeal!
The planning inspector today returned his decision to support DCC in their refusal of planning permission to MVV/Gilpins attempt to site a waste processing plant for Incinerator Bottom Ash from the proposed incinerator at Devonport in the town.
This means the town will remain free of hundred of lorries, blasting and dust, thanks to the tremendous effort of everyone in the town to fight this for the last two years.
