A questionable butterfly

It was suggested that Members first agree whether a play park was still wanted somewhere on ...

More info about the lawn working party. I asked the town clerk if the meetings will have agendas and minutes and, if so, if these would be put in the public domain. This is what I have been told; "Working Groups are not decision-making bodies; they investigate particular matters and make recommendations (with rationale) to the Council or Committee that established them.  They do not have ...

@DEEDOODLE 1. Have you sent your thoughts above to any/all of those who sit on the new Lawn Working Party? 2. The police and councils (and any other bodies that are funded from the public purse - eg the NHS) can only do what their finances allow them to do. If their finances are cut back then so are the services they can provide.

Although ........on reflection...........and given the amount of rain we've had and how sodden the ground is .....perhaps the Lawn should become a post  Brexit paddy field.

Not being defensive in the least. Entirely up to people whom they contact (if they choose to contact anyone at all). As and when I get information on this subject I will post it on here.

Given that the sender makes a point of requesting that the text be shared - see last line- who it got sent to originally is not relevant. It is doing 'the rounds'. That is why I posted it on here. I could just as easily not have done so. Why not send your opinions to them all if you are so worried.

The aim of this group is to bring forward a vision for the future of The Lawn to bring forward to Teignbridge District Council, the landowners, for the long -term future of this much -loved green ...
