Exmouth or East Berlin? Premier Inn invites you to have your say, tomorrow (Sat 15 Dec)

14 Dec
The despoilation of East Devon continues. EDDC plans to destroy another unique building, Exmouth’s Elizabeth Hall, and replace it with …..a Premier Inn! So another community centre will be lost to private profit. And another stunning Devon seafront will lose its history and special character. 
Plans on view tomorrow, for PUBLIC CONSULTATION. Exmouth Pavilion, 11am-4 pm) . (More at  SIN post for 11 Dec,  10, 000 signatures )
For a reality check on EDDC’s vision, this e-mail from an Exmouth resident is helpful:
Here is an image of the new Premier inn I saw in the flesh yesterday in Weston super Mare. Looks more like  something out of East Berlin. Note the near blank wall which is one of two such walls. Has the look of a precast, like a massive McDonalds, all corporate image stuff. This is 116 rooms on the sea front and I fear may be similar to what they propose for us though here I think it is 60 beds.
Note, anyone attending their open day on Saturday at Exmouth Pavillion, where they are ‘enlightening us and asking for local views, you  should do so as an individual and not a friend of EH, other wise they will be included as a single response with FoEH (Friends of Elizabeth Hall).

    Some might say East Devon already has its own version of the Stasi. Anyone for Free Speech ?
