Budget, March 2016
17 Mar 2016

He could have stopped giving away tax payers money on Foreign Aid. Stopped 100,000s of ecconomic migrants from invading our country. Increased tax on second homes and his super rich Conservative party mates. Stopped local authorities from wasting money on stupid cycle paths and other minority group projects. Loads of things, but they only do whats suits their particular party best or what Mr ...

Bite the bullit Lynne and put them in the bin nobody wants them and as far as I know they cannot be         re-cycled. If you want to watch them I can loan you a machine just PM me

Make's you laugh dosent it "biker Bob" is now a cyling expert, and his mates at TDC design a cycle path with a dead end that leads no where. Also if your on a cycle why would crossing the road be an issue, just turn left or right like all other road users do. Oh forgot that would mean obeying the highway code wouldnt it sorry about that little error. Anyway now that the "expert" has deemed the ...

In addition to the blatant rejection of safety concerns there was also no comment on how much the work has cost to accomodate a minority group and no explaination of where the money had come from seeing as TDC cant even keep public toilets open. Also no estimation of how many cyclists were expected to use the path and no projection as to what financial benifit this has to the town. There will also ...

Here is the reply from Jamie Hewitt - Highways officer DCC when questioned about the safety of the said road narrowing. He was also asked if the road camber and the tilting effect on tall vehicles had been taken into consideration. In reply to your email. Yes the running lanes of the A379 are being reduced in width to accommodate the extension of the cycleway into Dawlish town centre but they ...

More good news for the town then. Any more businesses, services, infrastructure leaving Dawlish the place is going to end up like a Calais migrant camp in a few more years. Any way will the last one out please turn off the lights, thats if we still have any of course

@Lynne Thanks for making it a little clearer. Question now being if Teignmouth has no plan and no involvement in all this what appears to be a total waste of time and they get very few new houses. Why has Dawlish got involved with it. It also seems fair to comment that it could be down to how good and strong each town council is. Developers put in plans to build on mass in Teignmouth and ...

Can somebody please translate all this abbrieviated waffle into simple non-political english that the average person in the street can understand. Does this also mean that Teignmouth has been through all this plan and policy making proceedure. thanks

Look on the positive side here. If the newcomers can afford in excess of £245,000 for a house they may also bring new businesses and new money to the town and even jobs. Has to be better than low life, drug dealing,  bennifit scrounging drop outs.

@Brooklyn Bridge The reason funds are being spent in Teignmouth and quite rightly so, is that its a far more attractive place to visit. For one they dont have a stupid old filthy railway line obstructing their sea front. They have a play park, a pier, better shops and resteraunts, reasonable parking, and a  terrific beach, etc. Dawlish on the other hand has become the provider of the ...
