What his is reason for this-----Proposals to axe free Sunday parking and for a steep hike in winter parking charges at the Dawlish Warren car park have been slammed by the mayor of Dawlish.
Just what has changed at the Warren that enables the South East Devon Habitat Regulations Executive Committee to issue this instruction? Perhaps this body consists of tree huggers who hate people and cars.
South east Devon habitat regulations executive comittee:-
23 10 2017 urgent item - car parking at Dawlish Warren.
In my opinion this is just jobs for the boys who need to find some justification for their bureaucratic comittee and I assume it's associated expenses. As this comittee has no actual powers it is down to Teignbridge District Council to decide if they act on these recomendation. Hopefully Clemens will not be participating in the the actual decision making that Teignbridge district council will be doing in deciding whether to take on these recomendations. If it's not broken then £$%"~@: leave it alone.
The three members are:-
cllr Phil Twiss
cllr Daniel Gottschalk
cllr Humphrey Clemens, Teignbridge District Council
Seems there could be more to this with regard to Sunday parking charges. It has now become clear that TDC have decided to call a halt to the Sunday car boot sales at the cattle market car park in Newton Abbot. This would imply that a full return to Sunday parking charges on all TDCs car parks is on the cards via the back door.
As said before Teignbridge councillors cannot be trusted, and the entire district council should be disbanded as it is not fit for purpose
A couple of questions.
Is the revenue gained from Teignbridge owned car parks ring fenced for use on TDC car parks or can it be spent anyway TDC likes?
How much does it cost TDC each year to maintain its car parks and from where does the required money come?
Lynne, I thought plod may have come in here, but I was wrong.
The income from on-street charging and any penalty charge payments received (whether for on-street or off-street enforcement) must only be used in accordance with section 55 (as amended) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.
Okay .....so.....aren't all TDC car parks off road?
What does Section 55 etc etc say as to how such revenues should be spent?
Seems like the usual suspects are wrong yet again. Teignbridge councillors have rejected the request from the external body.
