In principle, I am talking in the abstract, although a vision of Teignmouth Town Council did enter my head. I don't know about Dawlish Town Council, other than what I read here. My other visions involve constant interference making it impossible to take a strategic view and its opposite, a lack of oversight allowing the manager to act freely.
