Wonder how many of the 32 affordable homes will go to local people. Answer probably none. Affordable houses dont bring wealth, prosperity, new businesses or jobs. The only likely benificiary to this latest glorifed slum is going to be Sainsbury's. Why are Teignbridge Council intent on ruining Dawlish?

If and when we leave the EU the fields will have to be brought back into food production. The main reasons all subsidies will cease and the supermarkets will not be able to import milk etc so easily. Maybe it means Britain can start to become great again. Farmers grow food and open farm shops so local people can buy locally instead of 1000s of supermarket lorries pounding up and down the motorways ...

There are definatley some in there that should be put down, like the chap who gouged his girlfriends eyes out for instance. and what about the poor train driver when the last one jumped off the platform in front of his train. I have also heard about the staffing issues and the main reasons for starting this post was to ask a) what is going to be done about it b) to any councillors - ...

At least one maybe two have gone missing from Langdon again this week.  Our children and elderly are being put at risk by these repeated lapses in security and we shouldnt have to put up with it.  Either build a proper fence around it and treat it as the prison it really is, or close it down.

looking towards the sea from the main access road there is a section of grass banking to the right of the boat house. The bank curves around towards the red rock cafe. If the new banstand was built into the bank with the open performance stage looking out on the remaining grass area this would leave the closed end accessable from the existing sea wall road for support vehicles etc. The site on the ...

@Michael Clayson With all due respect could I just ask why you are obsessed with the town centre and in particular development of the lawn. Having seen over £1.75 million spent recently on the Strand side with no noticable change to any of the businesses or any increase in visitor numbers. Is it not time to look further a field around and about Dawlish for sites needing investment and ...

@Robert Vickery How about resignations from the council members forming the support group now then, would seem the right and honorable thing to do. Also commenting that over 300 objections do not constitute a valid reason for withdrawing the planning application just about sums up the thoughts of those whom sit on the planning committee at Teignbridge. Which is why Dawlish is rapidly ...

The new timber framed houses are a total rip off and not worth a fraction of the asking price. In ten to fifteen years time Cranbrook will be the sort of 60s slum council estate the authorities up north have been demolishing in the recent past. If you cannot get the standard 10 year NHBC warranty on a new property then you should automatically suspect there to be something not right. Go into ...

Not critising the local fire brigade but have noticed recently that they never seem to manage to save much from these sort of fires. For instance this obviousely started as a small fire in a scrap car, and should have been fairly easy to contain. Do we have issues here with staffing levels, training, equipment or something else. Just concerned thats all

If the SW is to speak with one voice then the coast line through Dawlish and Teignmouth is doomed from the off.  With joint populations of under 30,000, what chance do we have against the whole of Cornwall, Plymouth and most of Exeter. Whilst having an open mind on the future of the line, it would certainly do no harm to have a plan in place for redeveloping what would remian after its closure. ...
