What’s meant by regeneration?
I am curious as to why Carol Mortimer (letters, July 9) considers regenerating a town involves having a decent-sized supermarket and, therefore, a decent choice ?

We already have a Somerfield, butchers, bakers, fishmongers, newsagents, pharmacists, clothes retailers, etc, and a Tesco close by, and a Lidl soon to be close by. I believe a large supermarket within the town would be detrimental to the town.
I consider regeneration is about renovating buildings and landscapes - eg the marina, or cleaning/repairing shopfronts and derelict buildings, building a visitor centre, building a bowling alley (or other entertainment venues), improving local road layouts and traffic flow, improving cycle routes and making the town safer for pedestrians.
Several letters printed in your paper over the last couple of years have had suggestions for regenerating Exmouth. I wonder if the council has considered any of the ideas the local people have highlighted. It would be good to have some communication from the council asking our views.
