I read in the media that we need to build 12 new schools and three new train stations, costing �150 million, to accommodate all the new people who will arrive to fill the houses that we are building in the Exeter/East Devon area.
I think this is an under-estimate of what we need to spend to improve our infrastructure; how about another paper shop near Smiths in town or another post office, for those of you who wait in line?
I also read that Exmouth has a fairly large debt problem, according to a debt advisory service, so are we really that affluent as a town?
In history, people tended to migrate to towns because of employment prospects or gold strikes... I will inspect the pavements more carefully tomorrow.
