The natural countryside park is right next door to the 1,700 new homes being built to the north of the town, and councillors have called it ‘the best thing to happen to Dawlish in a long time’.

It exists courtesy of environmental legislation originating from the EU.

A quarter of a million pounds to turn a farmer's field into a dog walking area that, for most people in Dawlish, can only be reached by car.

What a great idea.  Thanks EU.

Maybe it should have been at a more accessible location? Such as Warren Farm?

 

Burneside is the only person I’ve come across who appears to disagree with the concept of SANGS. Hopefully when we leave the EU, the UK government will Introduce similar environmental legislation for the benefit of future generations.

It's at a very accessible location.  You can access from Sainsburys, through the new estate and then a kissing gate to the countryside park.  I do it regularly.

No personal attack by me Margaret, just an observation based upon someone’s opinion. Your post however appears to break the rules of this forum.

In the event of a No Deal Brexit perhaps TDC will put it back to being food producing land?

Allotments perhaps?

Has the #2 bus stopped going past it then?

If I want to go out and get some fresh air the last place I would visit is a farmer's field full of dog walkers and the attendant excreta.

Following that announcement, TDC have confirmed that they are to triple the size of the car park...

Each to their own. For me, I find it a lovely place to go for a walk, with or without a dog. It is also lovely to see so many other people enjoying it. Yes there is the occasional bit of dog poo that has been missed or ignored, but in my experience the vast majority of dog owners pick up after their pets. This goes for Sandy Lane as well. I used to live in a city until a couple of years ago and believe me, Dawlish is such a lovely place to live. There will always be things to criticise, and it is good that this happens, because if you focus on the small things, then the big things take care of themselves.

@ burnside

 

You obviously missed the point.

I was not referring to fresh air but the bus service as you stated that the only way to get there was by car.

Stick to the point please and don't digress and avoid the question.

Not being a bus user I had no idea you could get to that wretched farmer's field on public transport, I still won't be visiting it though.  I have far better

things to do than wander around a crap filled field.

I don't know who enjoys going there most me or my dog. It's lovely to see the dogs socialising and meeting so many friendly people.

Nice to know Ziggy that both EU and your dog enjoy going there.
