Letter from Peter Heaton Jones, MP for North Devon, to
the people who attended the Rally for Manning's Pit
I would be very concerned to see any development at
Mannings Pit. At the moment we don't know the intentions
of the new landowner, and this is causing a great deal
Through this event, I'd like to issue an appeal for
them to come forward and clearly state what plans they
have for the site.If any development proposal should
come forward, I will work closely with local people to
ensure their voices are heard loud and clear. Mannings
Pit is a much-valued area of countryside, used by many
local residents for leisure activities, and an important
environmental asset too.
I hope it can stay that way for future generations."
I am sorry once again I can't be there in
person, but I wish you well with the event.
