The 2009 DTOG Objection Report

The 2009 DTOG Objection Report was submitted to Torridge District Council on Thursday 22nd January, 2009 and was published on the TDC website the following day. It comprises 311 pages across 14 sections and 6 appendices.

Other opposition groups, particularly those fighting Bolsterstone, are welcome to use as much or as little of the report as they wish, but it is recommended that they drop DTOG a quick email to say which sections are going to be used before doing so. This is because additional information is coming in all the time and it is important to keep the material as up-to-date as possible.

NB. Some of the pdf files below are very large and will take up to two minutes to load, even on a broadband connection. Be patient, don't be dismayed by a blank grey screen, the text will appear eventually!
