THE EDITOR: As a visitor to Charlotteville from England this month, I just want to say I am horrified by the proposals to replace the existing shops with a glass and steel monstrosity.
Charlotteville beachfront is a beautiful and charming place, it has real character and warmth.
If I had been driving on the road and looked down to see the bay and seen a glass and steel mall I would have kept on driving, I can tell you. That type of modern soul-less construction can be seen anywhere.
Charlotteville is unique and amazing, please make sure it stays that way. I'll be following the progress. Good luck to those trying to preserve it.
