Thanks for your post Lynne. I think there is still some digging to do regarding who is paying how much and why. It stinks and it is disgraceful. I hope we all remember this when we next go to the polls.
Very good idea Paul re naming and shaming the councillors who have so shamefully spent our hard earned money. It really does beggar belief!
No, there isn't any guarantee re the net benefit. it is an outrageous waste of tax payers money.
How can we sit back and allow TDC, some of whom are Dawlish Councillors, allow such a vast amount of OUR money to be spent on such a venture when the vast majority of the people benefitting will come from other parts of the country and, probably, not spend a penny in the County? This is a disgraceful waste of taxpayers money.
I hate them too stephen15! Be great if they are forced to use more HSTs down here. Happy New Year too.
@stephen15 it was so bad throughout the morning and into the afternoon that the waves were hitting the up platform so the cc voyager trains would have been hit whatever line they were on and then they would have broken down. it would be better if cc ran hsts on our route then they wouldn't have to stop at exeter.
Long live elvis! Thanks for the best post in years. X
Was at Sainsbury's this afternoon and the first digger is in the field! I noted the Councillors on the newly formed planning committee and it does give me hope that planning meetings will have a much better attendance record compared to the last four years and that decisions will be based on planning criteria and not on personal preference. Hopefully there will be less emphasis and focus on ...
Is that because the train journey is so much cheaper? I just pose the question. The trains between Exeter and Dawlish are always full to bursting so clearly it is a popular choice of transport. I know from my own experience that train travel is far cheaper than travelling by bus but we do need better rolling stock and greater capacity on our trains,
You are absolutely right Lynne! I get my bus pass when I am 66 but by then they will be just a distant memory!! I was 60 in January!
