Gather the new departure area at the destination of HS2 will be so big that it will take 20 minutes to exit it...hmm now thats food for thought.

So why not keep it like that ..is that not what the majority of people voted for be it slim.  Its great to walk around Newton Abbot shopping areas and other towns without having to watch out for boy racers..

What on earth is going on?   I suggest others should do this one evening at the same time and make an honest opinion.  I am sorry but if anyone visited with a view to open a shop you would have to go look elsewhere to a town where there is a at least a chance of some business.  If the Coop ...

I lived in Dawlish 10 years ..in that time the shops were little supported by locals. Remember this is way before Sainsburys arrived.  Trade was always down to visitors, without them there was little point in a shop.. I see no point opening a shop in winter when streets deserted, just for the locals to say 'nobody goes in there'...they have always had great pleasure out of failure.   Mind, all the ...
