Well said Ken. And the TDC Planning Committee is beginning to see things that way also. This is the opening text of the refusal notice issued on 30th November for one of the smallest developments on the DA2 site at Dawlish (ref 14/01577/MAJ - an Outline Application for 35 homes) despite the recommendation for approval by Teignbridge's most senior planning officer: "1. Policy DA2 of ...

An excellent piece on the growing sewerage problems affecting Secmaton Lane on Simon Bates's Radio Devon programme this morning . Residents John Pollard, Roger Anderson and Margaret Cloak were recorded talking to the RD reporter about the issues, followed by a SB interview with Cllr Martin Wrigley. South West Water did not wish to appear on the programme but sent a statement saying they ...

You right about the poor take up of employment land, Lynne. The 1.8 hectares behind Sainsbury's designated for employment has only had a small proportion of the land developed since planning approval was granted in 2008, with only speculative interest in the remainder. Futhermore many of the sites on the Shutterton Industrial Estate are under-utilised and/or in need or redevelopment. ...

A problem I know the bigger builders have been working hard to help people overcome. Some may feel such assistance is worth the cost of any 'new home premium' on its own - but if it's a 'fixer-upper' that is sought after, best get saving.

A good indicator of the effect the Stamp Duty surcharge may have on the housing market has been the fluctutaion of the share price of house builders. News of the 3% surcharge effectively halved the increase in share prices that followed earlier announcements on Wednesday about the Government's boost to house building. This would indicate that investors think that the surcharge will have a ...

@Lynne , Yes a vote was taken - and was carried by all those present and voting. @Barbarawils68 , That a major planning application (MAJ) for 409 houses could be decided via delegated powers (DEL) by a single planning officer simply beggars belief. I have been assured however that this application will be 'called in' to the TDC Planning Committee (via a Cat B request) by a ...

I will do my best, Barbarawils68. Gatehouse Farm (15/02468/MAJ) was one of the largest planning applications to have ever come before the Dawlish Town Council Planning Committee, both in the number of houses and in the size of the application file. Including the address from a member of the public, the debate on the application lasted almost an hour. While the wording of the ...

@Lynne , You could submit questions via Dawlish Town Council at Reception@Dawlish.gov.uk. If staff are unable to pass them on in time for the meeting they can be forwarded to interested parties later for consideration. Gary Taylor

@Lynne , The meeting on Monday as I understand it, is an open meeting, however due to the late call on the date only Councillors and members of the Dawlish Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group have received invites to date. I am sure any member of the public who would wish to comment or contribute would also be welcome - but watch out for the Dawlish Neighbourhood Plan talent scouts! ...
