Health centre

SIR - I am writing in response to the article regarding the Fortfield development site.

I see that the latest application on the former Fortfield Hotel site is now the 31 private apartments and that the Managing Director of Zero C, Kim Slowe, has indicated that a seven figure sum will be made available ‘towards tourism and affordable housing off site’.

I hope that the East Devon District Council will include The Sidmouth Health Centre potential re-development in the division of this ‘donation’ from Zero C.

Our health centre is ranked as the most under-sized in East Devon, 23 out of 23 , by the Primary Trusts own figures.
