Members of CPRE (Campaign to Protect Rural England) Torbay have asked that we make contact to inform you of a Planning Application which has been submitted to Torbay Council. The land runs from Galmpton Village along the Brixham Road which overlooks the Dart Riverine towards Dittisham and Stoke Gabriel.


If you are reading this from the other side of the River Dart or South Hams area we have very strong reasons to believe the development will impact both sides of the River Dart and AONB. The site was strongly rejected by both areas (Galmpton and Dittisham) when it was proposed previously. It was dismissed by the Secretary of State in 1997 for reasons which are just as relevant today.
