We do not want this monstrosity

Here we go again. Another season and the spectre of a yet more ugly and totally out of character amendments to the Longboat Cafe plans are almost on us.

Here we go again. Another season and the spectre of a yet more ugly and totally out of character amendments to the Longboat Cafe plans are almost on us.

When will the owner give up - even rottweilers let go eventually! We do not want this monstrosity blighting our beautiful Budleigh coastline.

Go and build in Exmouth where the council will approve anything, as is evident by the hideous new bowling alley, not to mention the vastly over-the-top lifeboat station which wrecks the sea views for hundreds of yards in every direction.

To say these new plans for the Longboat Cafe are different is an insult to our intelligence - the back wall still protrudes several feet above the roadline, looking more like the rear of a toilet facility than a restaurant!

I call upon all local people, as several writers have done so before, to make their voices heard if they care about our coastline.

Find out which councillors are in favour of the plans and let them know you intend to vote them out as soon as possible for going against the public's wishes. We are not going to back down on this.
