TWO public consultation events have been planned on the proposed relocation of Holsworthy's livestock market and the redevelopment of the existing livestock market site in the town.

Savills, the consultants employed by Torridge District Council, Devon County Council, Holsworthy Town Council and the South West Regional Development Agency, are to hold the events in the town's Memorial Hall on November 4 from 9.30am to 9pm, with an update event on December 1st from 6pm-9pm.
