Everyone likes to talk transparency - but there are several areas in East Devon where actual transparency seems to be seriously lacking:
Futures Forum: Knowle relocation project: and 'unresolved issues'
Futures Forum: "Cash for access": the repercussions for East Devon
Futures Forum: When is a development 'viable' or not?
