Was this where some councillors wanted to have a coach park?
I think the sign said no cycling, motor scooters etc but as someone nicked it I can't be absolutely sure.
Just a point of accuracy, mobility scooters are also banned from the seawall following accidents last year when two came off the wall and landed on the beach in a very short space of time. Like it or not, the only safe way to traverse the wall is on foot!
They were used around Dawlish. Some were put at Coryton Cove and some above the cafe on that scubby bit but I believe those above the cafe have been vandalised!! We had them in storage for several months hoping Network Rail would capitulate but eventually they had to be used. I know eight benches doesn't sound much but what a massive difference they would make to visitors and locals in being able ...
Kings Walk is still currently Network Rails responsibility and they refused to allow DTC to put benches along the Walk. I know as I was on the working party that purchased the eight benches at the time. I believe they are trying to get TDC, or it could be DTC, to take over the responsibility for Kings Walk but we get very little information coming out of TDC and DTC so I don't know what has ...
About sums it up DEEDOODLE. We do need a new bandstand but not a carbuncle or armadillo! TDC had earmarked money for one before the ill thought through plans of a small number of councillors, some still serving, were allowed to waste tax payers money. The mess being created in Dawlish is breathtaking and not in a positive way!
Sorry Lynne but Councillor Prowse has been on both DTC and TDC planning for many years and defines herself as expert at councillor level. She was directly instrumental in the increased housing in Secmaton Lane. So.........to now blame SWW and take no responsibility herself is unforgivable. Councillors have a responsibility, sadly the old guard just do not seem to get that!!
Let's hope he has to eat his words! WASPI is growing rapidly and now has a huge membership. If you are a woman born in the 50s and don't already belong then please join us now. Log into the WASPI website to find out what is going on and future plans.
I agree. I think a land train between Dawlish Warren and Dawlish, calling in at Sandy Lane car park to pick up and drop off coach drivers, would be a popular attraction and be well used. We just need someone on the town council brave enough to lead on this project and bring it to fruition. The playpark will be a desolate eyesore for at least half of the year.
There is a WASPI day of action on Friday 16th Deptember. Devon WASPI are meeting in Plymouth at Noon and 3pm in Exeter, Princesshay near NEXT. Guest speakers have been invited.
