Vote them out!

SIR - I refer to your report (February 17, 2012) that Sidmouth civic leaders failed to submit a response to the controversial East Devon District Council Local Plan.

If all the proposals in the Local Plan were implemented, Sidmouth could end up with a housing estate on the Knowle, a tower block of luxury flats at Port Royal, another housing estate and car park at Woolbrook and a supermarket or industrial estate on the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

If our town councillors can’t be bothered to do their job properly and look after the interests of the people of Sidmouth, we should vote them out at the next election!
