And one 'developer' has the right idea

OK, so it was in relation to plans for an intensive pig farm not a quarry, and there was a concerted campaign by locals, but in the end the Earl of Devon saw reason and put out a statement explaining that he would not progress the venture any further, saying that the Powderham Estate:
values its relationship with the local community and the views of the Parish Councils and residents were taken into account when arriving at this decision.
Now that's a statement that's refreshing to hear.
