Dairy Crest state “we are still in the process of evaluating the best option for the site at Station Yard, Totnes. No decisions have yet been taken as to whether this will involve disposal or development”.

South Hams District Councillor Julian Brazil tells the Herald Express “we need to speed up the process of redeveloping the Dairy Crest site as quickly as possible. If necessary, use a compulsory purchase order to buy the site. Totnes needs it now. The worst thing that could happen is that it remains derelict for the next 10 years”.
