Update April 2019: The NewtonSaysNo.co.uk campaign has announced independent candidates running in the local elections, on 2 May. Let's all make sure we vote! ----------------
NA3 is a plan to build about 1,500 houses on the only tract of rolling hills in Newton Abbot, an area of Special Scientific Importance and the home and flight path of the endangered horseshoe bat. It has been planned using housing need estimates that the Campaign for the Protection of Rural England has found to be deeply flawed. The plan massively overestimates the housing need and will instead spur inward migration, doubling the size of the town and destroying its rural character.
