Councillors in row over decision to change farming land to light industrial

THREE Liberal Democrat councillors have withdrawn from their positions on East Devon District Council's planning committee and ordered an investigation into how a planning decision was reached.

Lib Dem leader Councillor Geoff Chamberlain, Councillor Steve Wragg and Councillor Derek Button have decided to play no part on the committee until the investigation is complete.

Their decision followed the committee's approval of planning permission for the change of use of land from farming to light industrial at Waldrons Farm, in Farringdon, near Exeter.

My comment: Three councillors with integrity? How rare these days.
