Worried by covenants action
Where are all the people who protested so vociferously against the proposed Asda? Why are they not protesting equally loudly about East Devon District Council and Clinton Devon s efforts to get long-standing covenants protecting the beautiful Exmouth seafront removed?
Where are all the people who protested so vociferously against the proposed Asda? Why are they not protesting equally loudly about East Devon District Council and Clinton Devon's efforts to get long-standing covenants protecting the beautiful Exmouth seafront removed?
These covenants were put in place (in the 1920s, I believe) to protect the seafront from commercial development and preserve it for the use of all residents and holidaymakers.
East Devon District Council/Clinton Devon are now attempting to get the covenants removed in order to allow commercial development, which will be of interest to only a minority group of residents/holidaymakers.
Surely there will be enough capacity in the new building currently under development for such commercial enterprise to take space?

Little publicity has been given to the proposed removal of the covenants and commercial development or surely local residents would be campaigning to protect the beautiful seafront for all to enjoy.
