@Diana Mond - the issue of the drunks was serious enough to have the prohibition notices errected, even if they are not enforced. The negative posts, as you call them, are people who feel strongly about Dawlish and need to voice their opinions as to the poor way Dawlish is being treated by its elected officials. is a positive forum that enable ALL participants to air their ...

All this, in my opinion, based on a public consultation that only asked where on The Lawn it should be placed. The only place to say NO to this ridiculous scheme was in the comments section of the questions and ...
