Was £35 when the Conservative administration introduced it in 2014. Now  £40 (although still £35 for those able to claim a concession). Don't know when charge got increased.

Well, you could contact TDC's planning dept. My preferred option though would be to contact a local district councillor. I'm guessing you live in Dawlish South West ward. You have two district councillors there - Gary Taylor and John Petherick. In this particular instance I would contact John Petherick. Why?

@1263 O. No. They. Are. Not. I can see why you might think otherwise though as the quote that you provide does lend itself to misinterpretation. What the Lib Dem's have actually been saying is that the numbers being imposed on the district by central government are too high. In July 2019 Cllr Hook  delivered a letter to No 10 concerning this very issue of central government imposing ...

I believe it's central government that determines how much housing needs to be built. So if you want to have a moan about that then Boris "Build,Build, Build" Johnson is the person you need to contact.
