Councillors reject new service station plan

It would have been built on the edge of the A30 at Whiddon Down.

Developers had said the £500,000 farm shop and café would sell local produce and provide an alternative to the large national food chains.

Five full-time jobs and five part-time jobs would have been created but councillors on West Devon Borough Council rejected the plans.

They decided it wouldn't benefit nearby villages.
