Indeed, to paraphrase East Devon District Council, it is about the "south store" and its adjacent development.

We are seeking reassurance that all proper procedures have been followed - particularly regarding infill - and that important matters of local, regional or national importance have not been overlooked.

If they have - or the Secretary of State decides that the question of infill by road or sea must be decided before work can start - then he will order further investigations.
