Are we going around in circles here? How can 77% of  of residents vote in favour of a playpark on the lawn when the question was not even asked of the residents? Please can someone show where and when it was that residents were asked "Do you want a playpark anywhere on the lawn?"

The town clerk is an employee of the council. She was not elected into post she was appointed. That the town clerk is commenting on all of this is not of concern to me, indeed it could well be argued that it is part of her job.

Well, as there are already houses on that side of Shutterton Lane the precedent has already been set for development and as the Redrow site development goes right up to the other side of Shutterton Lane I can see an argument being put forward that to build on the countrypark side would just be a logical urban extension. On top of that, the Countryside Park land, although paid for by developers, ...

As I understand it, the reason we had to have this new country park is due to environmental legislation that orginated from the EU. When we leave the EU what bits of EU legislation gets kept as UK legislation and which does not, will be up for grabs. So.........if it were to be decided that the environmental legislation that meant that park had to be created in the first place was to no ...

Is what happens (or not) on the lawn the concern/responsibility of the town council?

I'd say it was more a case of a Subway opening in Dawlish provided someone is prepared to take on a Subway franchise (as opposed to Subway itself definitely intending to open a branch in Dawlish). https://subwayfranchising.com/en-gb/franchise/opportunities-cornwall-devon-dorset-channel-islands
