"Personally I can't understand why our unpaid councillors failed to call such a meeting before the Tavistock decision day last Tuesday. If they had done then perhaps they would have realised how against any form of development the majority of Hatherleigh residents were. This town needed to FIGHT before outline planning was approved, but now it is TOO LATE.
Planning put in
Outline application (00760/2013)for mixed use development, following demolition of existing buildings, including Residential (including sheltered housing accommodation), Retail (Use Classes A1, A2 and/or A3), Community Space (including possible creche), Medical Centre, Employment floorspace (Class B1), together with new public realm including Market Square with associated Pavillion, Play Space, Hard and Soft Landscaping, Community Allotments, Means of Access, Public and Private Car Parking and associated infrastructure.

A Comment from the Council
It is the duty of Hatherleigh Town Council to represent our community in Hatherleigh and we take this responsibility seriously. We listened carefully to the views and concerns expressed at the Council meeting on 9th August 2011 and will, of course, ensure that this information is passed on and that the concerns are taken into consideration as the plans for the market progress. We are determined to ensure that any development of Hatherleigh Market brings as much benefit as possible to the town.
Please email the Council or Hatherleigh.net here.
Is the development anything to do with greed organised by their ancestors? A bit like Henry VIII or was it William the conqueror? When land was given away to the great subservient?
Over a hundred members of the public went to a meeting of the Parish Council on 9th August 2011 of which the main item was the presentation of the ideas of the Architects, http://www.lhc.net/. Before the council meeting began, three residents presented the case to keep the livestock market, they were Cindy Squire, Madeline Taylor and Neil Price. Click on their names to see transcripts. If you are in agreement please sign the petition below.
After the speeches the Mayor, Mr Graham Alford, informed that all future meeting concerning the Market would be promoted in the Parish Pump and on the Council Website. The architects were then asked to present their thoughts when their representative said that they had over 300 ideas and thoughts from the consultation in July. It was also requested that future consultations etc. be carried out on Tuesdays as this would allow more interested parties to take part.
