I understand their reasons

There have been numerous letters to the local press of late lamenting the fact that our elected representatives for the EDDC and Devon CC pay no heed to the wishes of those they represent.

Here, in Seaton, this was well demonstrated at the planning meeting concerning Tesco’s application for an infill pipe from the sea.

Having been at the meeting, I can understand the anger and frustration of those town councillors who have resigned. Is the regeneration of Seaton at hand or, more likely, its continuing degeneration?

This disregard for local residents is also apparent in the unwanted parking meters on Seaton seafront and in the Cloakham Lawns development in Axminster.
