Courtlands: a Japanese view

PUBLISHED: 15:21 29 April 2010 | UPDATED: 01:12 16 June 2010

I am writing to express how shocked I am to hear the news about the development plan in Lympstone (Courtlands Cross). I have visited the village several times and have fond of memories and even consider the place as my second home town.

I have visited the village several times and have fond of memories and even consider the place as my second home town.

Everybody I met was so nice, proud of their lovely village and welcomed me so warmly. I was really touched.

Therefore, I object to this planning application on the grounds that this is an Area of Great Landscape Value and the visual impact on the skyline will effect the surrounding area. I also think it will encourage coalescence with Exmouth.

I would really like to visit there again and want to see as it is now.

I hope you reconsider your development plan and keep such a national treasure for people in future.

I am sure you will not regret it and people in future will thank you for your high-spirited decision.
