You report last week the ­delivery to the leader of South Hams District Council a petition from South Hams Liberal Democrats asking for an end to secrecy surrounding the plans for development sites.

In his response the Conservative leader, Cllr Tucker, said is it necessary for the information to remain secret.

This is surprising, as the sites for Totnes are already available in a public document. They are published in reports put before Totnes Town Council.

The sites are listed as the potential developments of The Nursery, Heath’s Nursery and Heath Way car parks.
