Environmental impact of boats

SIR What about the pollution? Millions has been spent on the new sewage works which greatly helped clean up the sea.

SIR - What about the pollution? Millions has been spent on the new sewage works which greatly helped clean up the sea. Wouldn't there be oil slicks and effluent discharging from the motor yachts in this proposed marina? Traders hoping for more business would perhaps be disappointed with boats belonging to the absent rich and famous stopping access to the sea for ordinary fishermen and other users. There is a need for refurbishment. There is an area that has been derelict for years to the north of the children's play area, where once there was a sandpit and pool.I can visualise coming down the Byes to be confronted and blocked off from the sea by landing stages, highly secured by tall metal fencing and locked gates, and practically deserted similar to Cork, Ireland, and the Costa del Sol. I do hope I am wrong. What about resurrecting the tunnel to Beer caves for a park and train to take people to an environmentally disguised car park in that area? Mrs K BrayneSidmouth
