Having read Mark Williams' letter regarding the Seaton regeneration, there are two comments I would like to make:
Yes, the derelict buildings belonging to the camp and bordering the tram track were an eyesore, and should have been demolished years ago - but that didn't include flattening the pool, restaurant and other amenities.
The reason we as residents preferred Sainsbury's plan was that the design for the store and visitors' centre was more attractive and would have been a real focal point in the town.
Considering the planners are so pernickety over mere window frames, causing a shop which was a real asset to the town to close, it does make one wonder who knows what is best for Seaton. We've already lost the Youth Club, swimming pool and, of course, the aforementioned shop - are any of these assets going to be replaced? How is the town going to attract the visitors we so desperately need?
