Accolades query

With regard to the proposed development of the Greenway Lane allotments site in Budleigh Salterton.

I would like to point out that Clinton Devon Estate was ranked 21st in the Sunday Times’ ‘top 100 companies to work for in the UK’ and was ranked third best in Britain in the category of ‘giving something back’, as a result of working closely with the local communities.

Could CDE please let us know how these accolades fit with their plan to take the allotment site away and upset the local community?

I quote John Varley when he said: “Clinton Devon Estates is very proud of our record as an ethical company, to be recognised for our efforts in protecting the environment and putting something back into society is a great accolade.

“Clinton Devon Estates is very proud of its heritage and places great importance on protecting and enhancing the countryside and communities here in Devon.”
