Starcross?

Should we be saying 'the park was required because of environmental legislation' rather than 'the park was needed...........' It might be required but I doubt it was needed and I doubt it will see significant use.............boring green field V seafront, beach, amusements? Time will tell.

This is a sad time, the end of HSTs and the introduction of more uncomfortable, overcrowded inferior trains similar to the Crosscountry trains.

Let's hope the people of Dawlish speak up and speak out and save the lawn from the ********* in power at the moment. Why do they feel the need to simply copy what other towns have done without any thought to the appropriateness to Dawlish?

Well, clearly you did not work in schools in the inner city I did in the 80s. Well documented by whom? How I wish I still had a copy of that directive!!

How dare you call me a liar! I know what I read and was told as a teacher in the 80s in an inner city school. I expect an apology but obviously won't get one from the likes of you!

@From The Grave , when i was teaching in an inner city area in the 80s the then labour run council issued instructions to all schools not to refer to blackboards, they were to be called chalk boards, as blackboard was racially offensive!

Perhaps someone could request this issue be an agenda item at the next full town council meeting. Publicise the fact it is on the agenda to get as many people to attend as possible in order to put their views forward at the meeting. The same thing happened when there was the proposal for the hideous slug on the lawn and people power had a big impact. Our town councillors should be doing far more ...

As this is effectively blocking the footpath contact Councillor Alison Foden, Chair of the civic amenities committee, and ask her to deal with the issue. Footpaths come under the civic amenities committee.
