I write in support of the proposed development of a green space on the land to the south of East View, Honiton.This area has been an eyesore for many years, with an uneven footpath, brambles, often rusty cars and a declared unsafe wall. Although admirable developments, neither the Glen nor the Honiton Bottom Road site are easily accessible from the High Street. Both require a fair walk or a car (with restricted parking), thus limiting their use by the elderly, the disabled, town centre workers on a short lunch break, shoppers and, perhaps more importantly, the many tourists who tend to stroll along the High Street and would be glad of a sit down in pleasant surroundings. Currently there are two benches outside the church and the not very inspiring sports field.A glance at the 'Parks for People' website reveals a public body, supported by the government, which is backed up with abundant funds (�220 million for this year) that would seemingly aid the proposals of Mr Boom.
