@Lynne , i don’t know whether the majority of those who chose to answer the question did say yes but many did not answer that question as that wasn’t the prime forcus for the survey. A referendum is required to determine once and for all whether the people of Dawlish want a Playpark in the vicinity of the lawn area or not. This decision should not be taken lightly and by a few self serving ...

When I was a youngster, we had one play park that served everybody in about a 2mile radius. Why do we need another one? Why can'y the ones we already have be brought up to date if that is what is needed. How many play parks are there in Dawlish at present and where are they situated?

Thank you, Lynne, for that link. I had read it last year but re-read once more to familiarize with the topic. Is the question on this issue about the play park done and dusted? Or is there going to be an open forum and some sort of voting system. The previous survey was flawed in so many ways I'm surprised they got away with it, or have they? Do they have funding for this progject, from reading ...

@webmaster . don't you think it's time to move on to part three of this gripping saga ? before my scrolling finger seizes up.

Just come back from a relaxing walk.

Yes it was 2016 not 2014. Getting old - time merges. I have found this thread http://www.dawlish.com/thread/details/45050 and there are two others as well. I think that back in 2014 the question posed was along the lines of Do you want a playpark on the lawn? As the majority of those who responded said yes (I don't know the figures in favour) then that was why in 2016 when a ...

In 2104 the main focus for the consultation was about the proposal to build the so called arts centre on the lawn, you know, the one that looked like an armadillo! This was followed by a questionnaire which, on its first iteration, was full of loaded questions, (a little bit like the last questionnaire) but as that went to the full council changes were made to make it more impartial. The vast ...

@Brooklyn Bridge (23 june 11:12hrs). well said, but how many times in the past has the dawlish council just done what ever it pleased. even when they have sought the residents input? I see we no longer have anyone for the council participating on this forum. In my opinion the gwr £19,212 may or may not have something todo with the placing of the play park for the under 8's.

Having a playpark on the lawn - a potted history Okay, so........back in 2014 (I think it was) there was a public consultation about whether or not there should be a playpark on the lawn.  Not sure if there was anything online but definitely there was a public consultation event in the town somewhere. Both Linda Petherick and Margaret Swift were town councillors at the time so perhaps they ...

Has there been a vote on this issue if not why not? Should there be a vote by the residents of Dawlish? And do it like an election with votes submitted at the Manor. Just have two questions on the ballot. 1. Should the proposed playground be located outside the tourist office? 2. Or no! And hoping that the results would not be fixed in favour. Could anyone on this forum give any advice ...
