  • Whitecleave Quarry Polls

    Do you want to make your feelings about the proposed Incinerator Bottom Ash (IBA) processing plant in Whitecleave Quarry known? Then you will have two opportunities to do so.

    A Parish Poll will be taking place on Thursday 1st March. The question being asked is

    Do you want Whitecleave Quarry in Buckfastleigh to be used for any handling, processing or storage of industrial waste and bottom ash from waste incineration? Yes or No?

    The poll is open to all electors of the Parish of Buckfastleigh (which includes Buckfast). The only polling station is Buckfastleigh Town Hall. Voting takes place between 4pm and 9pm. There are no proxy votes and no postal votes.

    Before then, you can vote in the Mid-Devon Advertiser’s latest online poll. The question for this poll is:

    Should Whitecleaves Quarry, Buckfastleigh, be turned into a site for the storage and processing of industrial waste?

    At the moment, 56% of responses are “Yes, suitable” as opposed to 44% saying “No, not suitable” (no-one has said that they “Don’t know”, which is not surprising as this subject is very polarising).

    There are also a lot of comments from near (Gipsy Lane) and far (Norfolk) that are supportive of the proposed development. If you agree with these comments or not then you can also leave a comment.
