And who decided which questions should be asked? The town council did! (From the minutes of the town council meeting held 7th September 2016) The town council approved the following three questions for inclusion in the survey at its meeting held on 14 July 2016: 1. Do you want a Play Park on the Top Lawn between the bandstand and the bowling green in Dawlish Town Centre? 2. ...

Quite. Except that perhaps it should have been the very first question to be asked. I can only imagine that this 77% figure has been reached by adding the 'Yes' % from question 1 (60%) with the 'Yes' % from question 3 (17%). " Lies, damned lies, and statistics " is a phrase describing the persuasive power of numbers, particularly the use of statistics to bolster weak arguments . ...

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. However , it is what she is reported to have said that is infuriating me (the 77% nonsense).

OMG!!!!!!!  Even the town clerk is now using this 77% of residents voted in favour nonsense! Oh. no. they. did. not. Gross misuse of statistics. And, furthermore, it implies that there was an option for people to say they did not want a playpark on the lawn. But. there. was. no. such. option. A re-run of this consultation is necessary but this time with that option available. ...

As you say jc, rumour. The Lawn, Sandy Land playing fields, and other bits of green land in Dawlish are designated as part of the Green infrastructure of Dawlish in the Local Plan. As long as they remain designated as such they cannot be built on. The new countryside park is also in the Local Plan (it was originally going to be on the the sea side of Warren Road -remember the fuss ...

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 ...
