In response to the lead article in the Journal, dated April 22, (Editor - seafront bowling alley development halted after a fault was identified). The revised planning application calls for raising the roof height by four feet and the addition of wind turbines.

By his own admission, Mr Quinn (owner) states: "Until there is a method to fix the problem, we cannot work out a cost." Therefore, how can a decision be made regarding increased roof height. Similarly, the application to incorporate wind turbines seems like an afterthought.

This project has turned into a nightmare, with the people of Exmouth sacrificing their public amenity for the privilege of viewing this unsightly hulk.

Indeed, there are still other unresolved issues regarding this site, including visitor car parking and service vehicle access.

Surely, it is high time East Devon District took control of this situation and insisted on urgent project completion within the original planning approval.
