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 ...

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.

This is the thread that contains the information. There was a glitch on this website earlier this morning hence the three headings.
