All of East Devon could benefit

sir - What a good idea to sell off the “prestigious Sidmouth base” of East Devon District Council at The Knowle (report, Sidmouth Herald, July 16).

If the Knowle and its rolling acres of parkland is owned by East Devon District Council, is it too much to hope that the “millions” which your article says the sale would “rake in”, plus the savings made on gardeners and maintenance, would be used to benefit all the council tax payers in the whole East Devon area?
