Save this vital ecological site

I write as an amateur ecologist and frequent visitor to The Exe from the Midlands. Any ecosystem which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and on the Ramsar Convention should be afforded maximum protection.

I write as an amateur ecologist and frequent visitor to The Exe from the Midlands. Any ecosystem which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and on the Ramsar Convention should be afforded maximum protection. Please consider giving backing to local people and conservationists. There should be no development on The Exe, even if ASDA were to be providing a large number of jobs. Once destroyed, it can never be regained. In the end, this development will make no economic sense as part of the pull of the area on us tourists and environmentalists is its unspoilt beauty. I urge you - and all in positions of power and influence - to do all you can to save The Exe environment for the sake of future generations. Wildlife has a value which cannot be compared with any supermarket, which could be quite easily built in an alternative location. Fr Simon, St Laurence, Long Eaton.
