SIR - The Meeting Place plan for a marina complex at Appledore is a fantastic idea. Forget the housing. It would only add to a car-dependent urban sprawl that already has high unemployment.

Five hundred homes can be built anywhere as and when and where there is a sustainable need for such housing.

The spectacularly rural setting of the riverside part of the Knapp Farm site is unique and ideal for a marina complex. Its jobs would offer a decrease, not an increase, in the Torridge estuary area's jobless.

A marina complex with vision and style in beautiful North Devon could be a meeting place for young and old from nearby and further away. It could acquire a national and, indeed, international reputation.
