REGARDING the proposed development of the Longboat Cafe. I agree with Jed Falby (Letters Extra, October 9) and especially with the point that there is nowhere in our lovely seaside town where we can enjoy an evening meal with a view of the sea.It seems to me that David Daniel has overstated the importance of the wind and rain on the seafront. People still go out to eat in bad weather and surely a warm, enclosed space would be an ideal venue from which to view the elements? Let us remember that the sight of the moon shining on the sea can make an evening (even in winter) seem magical. Of course, at the moment, only the fortunate few who live on Marine Parade (like David Daniel) can enjoy this view while dining - what about the rest of us?His point about visitors losing the fabulous view seems rather an exaggeration, considering the size of the proposed development (which is on the same footprint as the exiting buildings and courtyard) in relation to the length of the seafront.I believe the development would be a great asset to residents and visitors and I wish the Hushons every success.Adele Tully,20 Frewins, Budleigh Salterton.
