Just leave it alone

SIR - What an awful idea!

Why do people think that “an incredibly underused” space has to be filled up/used?

Can’t we have nice quiet underused places? Is it not allowed?

I am not local but visit Sidmouth regularly and I use Church Lane precisely for that reason - it is a nice quiet shortcut across town, which offers access to Blackmore Gardens, another usually peaceful place.

To cover this “alleyway” and try to turn it into a commercial venture is such a bad idea. Please leave it alone!!
