@Deedoodle (and anyone else interested in following this through) suggest contact Cllr Val Mawhood about who owns the land (I've just checked and TDC does not) and once that is ascertained, whether or not vehicles are allowed on it (I'm thinking especially of dogs off lead, and small children). Cllr Mawhood is a mine of information concerning Dawlish and on top of that look where she lives! ...

Happened to be in town yesterday and noticed that the 'For Sale' sign that had gone up back in June is no longer there. So thought I'd click on the estate agents link that I posted above. When I posted that it back in June it gave details and pictures of the property. Just tried the link again - now just a blank page.

Just come across this http://www.camlins.com/projects/shell-cove-dawlish/ which concerns a previous proposed development on the site. If you read the blurb, yet again there is reference to a private beach. From research done by others who have posted their findings on Eyes of Dawlish it seems that there is a private footpath leading to the beach across Shell Cove House grounds that ...

From what I can gather it seems the footpath was never a public one. It was, and is, a private footpath on private land. What is being disputed is the ownership of Shell Cove. Is it privately owned or not? This came to a head last weekend when someone from the town accessed the beach via a boat and was told by someone there that the beach was a private one and that they were not allowed ...

Just checked. Wording now says 'private access to a secluded sandy beach".

Check out this link https://www.bradleys-estate-agents.co.uk/properties/13103288/sales Would this be the same site? Think so. It hasn't got planning permission yet! And Bradleys seem to think the site's in Teignmouth. Doh! Also, as I type this (cos of course it might get altered) the developer, Poppy Developments, are advertising the plot as having a private beach. ...

Have you seen what the developer is wishing to build?! OMG! It looks like a prison block.! No wonder the town council said "the design is not in keeping with the area and the materials are unsympathetic". I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder but there is no beauty in what is being proposed in this particular person's eye. If you want to see what I am talking about then do ...
