The last day of this public inquiry saw closing statements from the three parties:

  • Mr Charlie Hopkins for Buckfastleigh Community Forum
  • Mr Rupert Warren for Devon County Council
  • Mr Mark Westmoreland Smith for MVV

The main hall in Buckfastleigh Town Hall was full and there was a sea of orange t-shirts.  Mr Hopkins was first to read out his closing statement, followed by Mr Warren’s closing submissions and a short break for lunch. Returning after lunch, Mr Westmoreland Smith read his closing statement.

Here are the three separate closing statements in Adobe Acrobat PDF.  They are long documents, but make very interesting reading!
