Sandra Semple was elected in order to Stand Up for Seaton. This is what she has done, and continues to do. It was high time that Tesco should be asked some pertinent questions about their plans for Seaton, and she has not been afraid to do just that.

Sandra Semple was elected in order to Stand Up for Seaton.

This is what she has done, and continues to do. It was high time that Tesco should be asked some pertinent questions about their plans for Seaton, and she has not been afraid to do just that.

The trouble is that the Regeneration Board was not intended to examine the desirability or viability of the scheme with regard to the well being of Seaton, its people, local economy or environmental effects.

It was simply convened to rubber-stamp decisions that had already been taken. To question the wisdom of such decisions, or worse still, to ask who might stand to gain or lose by their implementation, was outside the board's remit.

Seeing that the Regeneration Board is not intended to look into what lies behind the Tesco plans, who is then to provide the people of Seaton with the answers to the questions that our mayor must be congratulated in bringing into the open?
