MR Watson's letter in last weeks paper concerning the extra planned exit for Sainsbury's car park hit the nail on the head.

I always personally thought it was a silly scheme diverting traffic through a residential area, namely Creek Road.

I believe the planners and the town council and the district council planning committees wrongly believed that the right turn exit onto Creek Road, would ease traffic in the town centre.

Nevertheless the scheme was approved twice, the first applications and the re-applications.

Then suddenly the Conservative Club in Creek Road decided they didn't like it and the committee sent a letter to highways demanding that the scheme be scrapped.

It would be nice if we could all demand that a planning application be stopped after it's been approved because we don't like it.

We are not in that position though, but it's worth considering.

I should emphasise that I certainly didn't think the Sainsbury's idea was feasible; however the "principle" of the whole thing appals me.
