I am writing about the regeneration of Seaton.My mother and father moved to Seaton from Yorkshire about 50 years ago, so I have seen all the ups and downs of Seaton. I think it would be the best thing that could happen to Seaton - it will bring jobs, which are needed.I walk nearly every day down Harbour Road from the Marsh district and it really is an eyesore of barren land going to waste. These people who are objecting to the Tesco proposals are probably single people or people who have moved into Seaton expecting peace and quiet. I am speaking to all the people who have opposed the Tesco proposals: wake up - there is no peace and quiet anymore. The world and Britain are changing. You can see that by the influx of people coming in from around the world to different areas. There needs to be housing. The number of flats that are available is few. With the closure of Woolworths, Seaton is going to be a ghost town full of old people with all the young people moving away.Maybe this is what all the people who opposed Tesco want. Along with the superstore we would have clothes and electricals which, at this time, we do not have. So come on Tesco, give us some joy to smother the gloom that is already hanging over Seaton.Keith OsborneMeadway Seaton
