Time for vision

SIR - Nature has blessed our area with a heritage coast and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Individual benefactors, bodies such as the Sid Valley Association, council gardens and representatives, have husbanded and enhanced our blessings.

Now, the prospect of turning Sidmouth into a proverbial carbuncle on the face of our much-loved, magnificent coastline is looming.

Couldn’t the planners harness the talent, creativity and passion so manifestly displayed in your pages to form a visionary, community solution to enable us to pass on our blessed heritage to future generations?
