So might all this online banking and shopping be aiding and abetting the demise of town centres? More than likely I think. And if that is the way of things now (which it seems it is) then I think it is pretty obvious why town centres aren't as vibrant as they used to be. (online shopping along with out of town supermarkets and shopping areas that provide free parking).
All the more reason for there to be something else in the town centre that will attract visitors to it. And I totally agree that a playpark on the lawn will not be the answer. Dawlish town centre now needs a unique selling point more than ever. Look to what Flo has suggested on another thread. I wonder what will replace the bank in that building? Perhaps it could become that drop in ...
Just imagine how this country's balance of payments might benefit if we could just but export all this excess rainwater of ours to more arid climes.
Has he got another job?
@majorp - click on the link that dm posted at the very beginning of this thread - that shows who has applied for the licence. @leatash - i expect it is open. the issue is whether or not a licence to serve alcohol has been/will be granted. click on the link that dm posted for details.
Anyone know if this application has been granted?
See this - section 3 http://www.teignbridge.gov.uk/media/1328/statement-of-licensing-policy-2016-2021.pdf
