Perhaps an explaination as to why the road remained closed for seven hours may have helped. The two young female officers at the top of Dawlish hill Teignmouth and new road junction were less than polite to me and that was past 7.30pm. Good manners feeds both ways.

When is somebody going to stop these idiots wasting taxpayers money on these ludicrus schemes. If Dawlish traders report no increase in trade or visitor numbers solely due to the cycle path as these are the reasons given for wasting this money, not to mention the inconvienience,  then can we have our roads re-instated and repaired to a state making them fit for purpose.

When did Dawlish accuire a sea front. Its a stone and concrete wall with a decrepid rusty old railway perched alongside. How can anyone find that attractive and a place worth visiting. Now Teignmouth on the other hand, now thats a sea front. All will be better though when the railway moves in land opening up the oppertunity for investment in the town and maybe then we will have a sea front. On ...

six years in Langdon for trying to hold a conversation with a Duck. Mind you its probably not as bad as trying to get the truth out of TDC

What their closing down TDC. Just how many members of the public have thrown their support behind this as I dont know anyone who has been consulted. Another load of minority spouting, cant wait to see how its going to be enforced. As its being reported in the torquay hearld then its bound to have been miss-understood.

So who is going to propose a vote of no confidence in the 2 or more Dawlish town councillors who also sit on the planning committee at TDC. They need to be kicked off the town council with immediate effect for not putting the best interests of the town first. Make it happen and then get rid of the TDC councillors who also represent Dawlish but sail us down the swanny every time.

I think £1400 must include the transformer type battery charger as well as the outside socket plus of course labour and VAT. Even with all that it still seems a bit steep. As Gary says the environmental issues with these types of cars are still to be evaluated. There  will obviously come a time when the batteries will need replaceing  which will undoubtably cost more than the cars worth and we are ...

Why would there need to be a discussion on something that has already been agreed between greedy developers and the backhand recievers at TDC. 1,000 homes for sure, new roads and other infrastructure no chance. How about creating 2 or 3 thousand jobs before building any more houses. After all the local need only amounts to around 250 and they would need to be of the affordable type which ...

Its cost the council tax payers a dam sight more than the 200k donated without consutation by TDC and DCC. Resufacing the footpaths around the castle entrance and the general street cleaning alone have cost more than that on top. Quite looking foward to presenting a F.O.I request for a breakdown of costs against income for the event as a whole. A guess would be its cost the local (including Exeter ...

Seeing as TDC see fit to waste tax payers money (without consutation) on distributing leaflets and parking notices etc, and are also putting the Sandy lane fields at risk of being ruined should it rain resulting in more expense. This in addition to monies already donated and assuming the extra police, stewards and security are also going to be funded locally. Will they in return after the event be ...
