The town of Buckfastleigh has opposed and fought this development in our town in all its forms from day one. And we’ve won! The appeal mounted by MVV and Gilpin Demolition against Devon County Council’s Planning Committee decision that refused the development of Whitecleave Quarry has failed. MVV’s and Gilpin Demolition’s proposed development of Whitecleave Quarry will not go ahead. Squashed. Killed. Dead in tracks…
