How is this detrimental to the existing Longboat Caf� being changed into a monstrosity of glass, etc? The simple fact is the public want it left as it always has been.

The old Budleigh! Simple as that! Cup of tea, coffee, something to eat, easy!

No huge glass edifice obliterating the beautiful seaside views; just a peaceful seaside town left alone in all its glory, as it always has been.

We have heard time and boring time again - plans not accepted.

Still perfectly perfect as it is but with the proprietors leaving the area with a big cheque, letting everybody left behind facing the consequences.

So, great, what a mess, no need for any of it.
