Letter from Chris Ford, a Teignmouth resident.

When there are other options on the table, which may not be so convenient in the short term, covering over this lovely place with concrete is an environmental crime.

To those who argue it's just a small impact to a few dog walkers, our newly re-elected MP Anne Marie Morris included as one with that view, please think about the long term harm and devastation you will cause if Network Rail don't rethink this ugly scheme.

No one opposing the planned scheme is anti-railway but we simply want a more sympathetic and less impactful solution.

Network Rail have admitted they exist but they just don't want a temporary bus replacement for the duration of the work.

When we look back in years to come no one will regret the extra time their journey took for a few months but we will regret the loss of such a beautiful and diverse stretch of our precious coastline which is so accessible and enjoyed by so many.

Chris Ford, Teignmouth
