A divisive motion which sought to outline Tiverton Town Council’s opposition to a popular festive hunt meet in the town, was overwhelmingly rejected by councillors.
The result has delighted rural campaigners, who had urged local councillors to ‘back the local rural community’ ahead of the vote, which took place at New Hall.
he motion, submitted by Councillor Andy Perris which was discussed at a full council meeting yesterday stated: “This council notes that the hunt meets in Tiverton on Boxing Day and has done so for many years without seeking support from either Mid Devon District Council or Tiverton Town Council.
