Protest group formed in Seaton after site on regeneration site for hotel changed to McCarthy and Stone retirement flats

We have received the following message from Seaton:

 The Seaton Regeneration area (Tesco site) had a plot set aside for a hotel to replace tourist beds lost when the holiday camp was demolished but the developers of the site (Tesco and Bovis Homes) say they were unsuccessful in marketing the site for a hotel.

Now McCarthy and Stone has take an option for yet another block of retirement flats.  Seaton is already highly over-represented with elderly people and retirement blocks which are to the north (Jubilee Lodge), east (Haven Court) and south (Homebaye House) of the regeneration area and will nowtotally encircle the planned new Visitor Centre.

Recently Tesco won the right to delete all the affordable housing that had been planned for the site.  No affordable housing has been built for many years in Seaton.

A protest group has been set up to oppose the latest development and will have its first meeting at

The Hook and Parrot

on Seaton seafront at

7.30 p.m. on

Thursday 5 June 1014 at 7.30 pm

to which anyone who objects to this planning application is warmly welcome.
