LANDFILL Application Update
The Planning Application for an industrial scale Landfill in an Area of Great Landscape Value on land at Lower Hare Farm, Whitestone officially remains ‘on hold’ pending receipt of the additional and missing information requested by Devon County Council. Without this the application cannot be considered and although the applicants Agent had indicated to DCC that the additional and missing information would be made available by the end of May, to date, this has not been forthcoming. However, in an unusual move, the application was referred to a meeting of the DCC Development Management Committee last month where agreement ‘in principle’ was given to a site visit ‘when the application comes before the Committee’. It was also noted the application ‘is proving very contentious’ and to date, some 230 objections have been lodged with DCC!
A number of Whitestone Parish Councillors and others have already made an accompanied visit to the site, an experience that confirmed rather than allayed their concerns. Richard Agnew, Agent for the applicant, again asserted that HGV traffic from Crediton would approach the site, on the subsidence and accident prone C50, using the A377 via Cowley and Exeter. He did not explain how this routing could be enforced or why drivers would opt for a 12 mile journey via Exeter rather than the shorter more direct 6 mile route via Fordton, Tedburn St Mary and Pathfinder.
The CPRE (Campaign to Protect Rural England) continues to give active support to opposing the Landfill application and in their Spring edition of Devon Voice, feature an article on the subject.
CPRE has also launched a campaign calling for a change to Government housing policy in which they point out that in the last four years the amount of farmland, forest, gardens and green field released for development has risen by 58%
Pathfinder residents were recently given a detailed briefing about the proposed landfill by representatives of STAWL (Stop another Whitestone Landfill) when serious concerns were raised about air pollution and the potential health effects on nearby residents. It was also pointed out that the recent extension of extant permission granted by DCC for the importation of 25,000 tonnes/pa of inert waste to Wilminstone Quarry, Tavistock further undermines the case for additional landfill capacity, particularly in a protected local landscape.

TEDBURN ST. MARY LAWN TENNIS CLUB
We are looking for new members to join our small club. We have two tennis courts at the beautiful Recreation Association field. Twice a week, weather permitting, we meet informally to play. Only basic skills needed, as we are all improvers! Full details are posted at the courts. We also like to encourage hiring of the courts on a casual basis.
If you would like to make direct contact with us, please ring Linda or Gil Bellshaw on 01647 61479.
or email: email@example.com
Can you help with our community project?
The idea is that we give the gift of a home-cooked, oven ready meal to people who might have trouble cooking at the moment, maybe due to moving home, illness, a new baby, or having lost a loved one. The Methodist church provides freezer space and containers for meals. If you’re cooking, you put a few extra portions aside and give to one of our members, to freeze, ready to give when needed. We then co-ordinate delivery of the meals to people who need them, by friends or neighbours.
In our first month we have provided more than 30 meals to local households, and have received lots of lovely thankyou messages.
If you can help, with occasional cooking, or (just as important) letting us know of people who might need this, you can contact Helen Fry on 07772 436516, or search ‘Tedburn Kitchen’ on facebook.
Tedburn Kitchen is a project based at Tedburn Methodist Church.
CAN YOU HELP?
‘Your Tedburn – Our History’
The Little Chapel Trustees and the Parish Council are working together to set up a permanent display of our village history in the Little Chapel which will be open to the public on a regular basis.
As you will know from recent displays in the Village Hall we have a multitude of articles, letters, cuttings and artefacts from the last hundred years or so. We would like to be able to display these for the enjoyment of parishioners and visitors.
We have a number of people interested in helping with the project but we need help with:
- Display of items
- Cataloguing and Archiving
- Management of the Project
If you can help, please contact either Terry Wood 01647 61454 or
Gil Bellshaw 01647 61479 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

YOUR COMMUNITY NEEDS YOU
Acorn is looking for volunteer’s to help us continue to support the elderly and vulnerable in our communities. Whilst we live in a beautiful part of the country, our rural location can be isolating for some individuals. Acorn works hard to reduce this isolation by support the emotional and social needs of the elderly.
We are in search of volunteers who can contribute some volunteering time. That could be anything from 1 hour a month to one morning a month.
The services that need support are:
- being prepared to drive clients to appointments such as the GP surgery, hospital or podiatry clinics;
- driving our minibus to Sainsbury’s so our clients can do their shopping (minibus training provided);
- Engaging with our clients at our various services which include coffee mornings, lunch clubs and much much more
If you have any time please do call Jackie Thomas on 01647 252701.
Free service – Tedburn Community Library
