Much has been said about the impact of the proposed relocation of Tesco and the effects it would have on the commercial stability of the High Street and the traffic problems that would be created around the Ottery Moor Lane area, so I will not spend time regurgitating what is glaringly obvious.What I would like to understand is how EDDC believe that accepting funding from Tesco's for a new community centre will compensate for the decimation that will have been caused to that same community? Don't bother trying to submit your comments on the Planning page of the EDDC website as you will still only generate a failure message, despite their extension of the closing date for representations. This type of thing would never be tolerated in the commercial private sector. Stephen Hobday12 Lilley Walk Honiton
