To: Cllr John Hart, Leader of Devon County Council

Keep Devon County's Farms Farming! Save Markhams Farm and Manor Farm!

Reason for signing

  • The traffic in SW Exeter is already very heavy and will be much worse when the 2,500 new houses between Alphington and Exminster are built. The roads are narrow and unsuitable for any more cars. 60% of new houses are bought by people from outside Devon. This is not a suitable place for affordable homes, which is what is urgently needed, but which the greedy developers do not want to build as they are not profitable. DCC has already sold all the beautiful arable fields around Alphington.
