Will plans ever be refused?

Re: the Longboat proposal.

Just a few questions about the proposed development.

As East Devon District Council has recently spent several thousands of pounds of our Council Tax on repairs to the council shelter, if our Town Council applies for the shelter to be Grade II listed, would that save the shelter for our use?

As so many of us local council tax payers feel so strongly about the proposed demolition of the shelter, outside the current development, would we be allowed to buy the shelter for our private use?

Is the new (or prospective) owner of the Longboat aware of the growing number of cafe/restaurants in the town? In poor weather, many residents in winter will prefer to use Tobias, Markers, the Feathers, the King William, Taj Mahal, Slice of Lyme, Tittle Tattle, Cosy Tea Pot or Dolphin.

Now the sea front will be changed forever, will our district councillors also vote in favour of the unwanted glass sculpture on the beach?
