  1. The wealth generation potential of the railway returning to the town , will greatly outway any short term development will have 

  2. The railway returning to Ashburton would benefit not only the town, but indeed the whole of Devon as well as the millions of visitors our county receives from all over the country and beyond. 

  3. This town have suffered ,as others, from losing their railways-buckfastleigh has benefited at ashburtons lose-even as a preserved railway it brings in tourism and growth-last chance to right a wrong! Many towns wish they could “go back” and alter history-times is right for ashburton!

  4. It is beyond belief that the benefits that would be brought to Ashburton and the surrounding area by re-building the railway can not been seen by the powers that be. As a business man I wish a chance like this had fallen in my lap!. Every where railways both national and preserved are booming and the DNPA wish to throw the chance away!!. As the Railway operating rights still exist (because it is a dismantled Railway not
    an abandoned one it may well be illegal to build on the land!)
