The non-favoured east side of East Devon – strange goings on

28 Sep

News reaches us, for a change, from the unfavoured east side of our district (well, that bit of the east side that isn’t Axminster).

In Seaton it appears that the third town clerk in 2 years has resigned after only a few weeks in office.

In Colyton, it seems that the natives are getting restless about the pecuniary and other interests of some of their councillors (town and district).

Seems like this part of the world is due a bit of TLC!

    Yes, it is clear that Seaton has been mismanaged for a long time!

      You need to consider the impact of the Axe Wetlands project. It will turn the place into a twitcher’s paradise. Not me luv. I want my fish and chips.

    And where will the twitchers stay? Anywhere but Seaton which has probably the fewest tourist beds in the district, where its biggest hotel has 10 beds and where the hotel site on the Tesco land has been unsold for more than a year and has now been airbrushed out of Tesco’s new plans – maybe because it would be too heavy for the infill difficulties that mean even terraced housing is not an option. They will go to the Premier, Inns which are springing up everywhere else just like Tesco has. The Seaton Heights plans get more grandiose and expensive by the day which does not suger well for the economy or green tourist. If you can tell me anywhere else in Seaton that could accommodsate a high level of tourist beds, let us know and let EDDC know. Oh no, it doesn’t have a tourism officer.
