Dunno. Perhaps someone could ask her and put her response on here.

I have been sent the following information; "The Government has told Teignbridge it must build 751 houses a year (they had planned to order 1,532 houses a year!). TDC therefore has to identify the sites where the houses can be built. If TDC does not do this the Government will take over planning at Teignbridge and increase the numbers by 20%. It is important to stress that at this ...

The Old Vicarage,Weech Road: My heart bleeds for those who live near this site. It could have been such an asset to the town and immediate area instead of which it is now, an eyesore of a derelict building. Trouble is, trouble is , it is a listed building and as such it is afforded protection from development. Previous planning applications to develop the site have been stalled by the mere fact ...

Building on land presently used for agriculture (market gardens, farm land). What with the farming industry being under threat from any future free trade deals with mega farming countries like Australia, N.Z, the US, Argentina and Brazil I can totally understand that farmers are looking for other ways to earn a living. Some might use their land to go into tourism of some kind, others might ...

See first post and proposal to build homes on land adjacent to the country park. So if this were to happen I'd suggest that the park would need to be renamed as it would no longer be a park in the countryside but more a park surrounded by houses ( a bit like Sandy Lane Playing fields). There is a planning application presently lodged with TDC from Cofton Holiday Park (see ...

On the subject of Teignmouth, and with reference to another thread concerning the number of new homes needing to be built, (see https://dawlish.com/thread/details/47463 ), whilst it is planned for Dawlish to have another 1000 or so new homes,  in T'mouth the number is but 100.

(I'm sure I'm tempting fate here but...........) anyone have any thoughts on any of the sites mentioned in the first post of this thread? For example: Take Lanherne. The site they have in mind is where the allotments used to be. It is bounded by a cycle/footpath on two sides and the Lanherne (sheltered?) scheme on the other. How will it be accessed? I can only imagine via going through the ...

Funny this should come up on here. I have but only recently been in correspondence with local councillors about this matter. TIC in Dawlish is now shut permanently. Wef December 2020 I believe.  Dawlish Town Council has a Tourism Working Party. Its chair is Cllr Terry Lowther. I gather they are looking at, amongst other things, how to compensate for Dawlish no longer having a TIC.  Suggest ...

@Cassandra : that might well indeed be the case, yes. I was just making the observation that the site is not mentioned as one having been put forward for development according to the newspaper report.
