The whole thing is another DCC mess up, when the cycle path was put in along the A379 that stopped there being enough space for traffic lights at the junction of Elm Grove Road and the A379. I have always thought that in this day and age of computers that a set of three way lights with pedestrian option for all traffic at stop in all directions could be put in.

Yes folks, this is what DCC Highways department is proposing should happen. All traffic wishing to leave Exeter Road from the sea side of the A379  wanting to access the Elm Grove/ Gatehouse Farm area  will have to do so via Sandy Lane and Elm Grove Drive. Some might welcome this proposal.  Who knows? It would be interesting to find out. P'raps someone should ask the residents of Elm Grove ...

There is a letter concerning the missing link road on page 17 of the latest Dawlish Gazette (Thursday 17th March 2022). Letter is headed Get Used to More Construction Traffic in Dawlish. Please bring its contents (by word of mouth/other forms of local social media) to the attention of all those living in and using the Elm Grove area. That includes all those, many of whom have young famiilies, ...

It's a foregone conclusion

The request by Dawlish Town Council for this planning application to be decided by Teignbridge District Council Planning Committee (rather than a TDC Planning Officer) has been refused. Anyone fancy laying a bet as to what the TDC Planning Officer will decide?

Appeal dismissed. 21/00040/REF DAWLISH - Golden Sands And Peppermint Park Warren Road Appeal against the refusal of 18/01178/MAJ: Use of land for the stationing of static holiday caravans, re-positioning of play equipment and associated works Appeal Dismissed.
