Get something out of Tesco developers

MADAM - With regard to the application by Tesco to open a store in Ottery St Mary. Obviously, there are both positive and negative aspects.

Obviously, there are both positive and negative aspects. Assuming that planning permission is granted, should the community and planners try to "accentuate the positive" and obtain some long-term benefit?

For example, planning consent could include converting part of the Town Mill to a new public library. This is planned, I understand, but when and from where will the money be available? Again, it would be very useful for the town as a whole if an enlarged stage was built at the Institute - with all the fittings etc, thus creating a theatre/concert hall for Ottery and district.

I shall watch with interest.
