Town doomed'

PUBLISHED: 12:55 17 March 2010 | UPDATED: 01:03 16 June 2010

It was with utter disbelief that I read in your paper that Axminster Town Council actually supports the expansion of the Tesco store in Axminster – and if they support it, then they should all resign as they obviously do not care about Axminster or its people!

It will not be good for the town - they treat Axminster like a tip, with trolleys abandoned for days on end (there is one currently in the stream alongside the store that has been residing there for five days now alongside the litter-strewn bank) as well as litter and broken beer bottles and dogs' mess on their paths.

I would have thought that, with a planning application in process to expand the store, they would at least have temporarily cleaned up their act.

I would like to know how the chamber of commerce feels about the plans, if they care for the future of their businesses and their town?

I feel that democracy has died and with no faith in EDDC to make the right choice the town is doomed!
