Dawlish News

Just a thought but will some company be laying on free cycles so the people attending can ride into Dawlish and justify the new path also paid for out of local taxes. They could then spend all their money in town and ride back to Powderham. Or maybe there should be no on site parking which might provide some income for GWR, Stagecoach and local taxi firms. On second thought wont all these extra ...

So there you have it as per Westcountry ITV news. More false promises from Cam-moron and his fellow Con-servatives. Not only no inland replacement line, but no improvement to the existing coast line either. Think its time Anne-Marie Morris, Jeremy Christophers and the rest of the incompetence party stood down and called a by-election. The time for UKIP has arrived. By the way anyone noticed how ...

@leatash It has to be horse and carts hasent it. Mind you Ted Hockin and co are probably working on that already with their backward thinking policies, they will probably need quite a few meetings with buffet lunches and several scoping visits on expenses first though. Allthough having the noses in the trough with the horses wont be strange to them. I know how about we pedestrianise ...

@leatash Are these the same powers that be, that tell us we need 2,500 new homes to meet local housing needs when in fact when surveyed the local need was actually 3. Or the same powers that allow developers to buy their way out of section 106 agreements and threaten to compulsary purchase peoples livelyhoods on false pretences. Enough said as nobody seems in favour of ousting them as unfit for ...

@Purrrrfect - Your dead right there look at the chaos being caused on Exeter Road again down by Elm grove road and Eastcliff. Another totally useless stretch of cycle path which non of the Lycra loonies will ever use. Its a complete waste of money constructing cycle paths unless the law states that when available they have to be used. Hopefully the ever increasing number of pot holes will make ...

What planet do these pair of dim witted councilors live on. Network rail were never going to spend millions on the coastal line. They were only ever going to do what was needed to get the trains running again in order to stop all the moaning and groaning from places cutoff from their rail service. Its also fairly obvious to a total idiot why the govermnet wont fund the surveys and thats because ...

@Lynne the letters from sww are to cover their own backs, and relate to the two latest planning applications for the area. they have done nothing about the previous and on going gatehouse/secmanton developments. in any case tdc planning dept do not take any objection letters into account when considering these new developments. the elected planning committee arent even going to have a say, this ...

SWW have known about the sewerage problem around Secmanton and Shutterton for years. Its nothing to do with land drainage the main sewer deep under the A379 is slowly collapsing and as it does it becomes more suseptable to blockages. The whole system from the Warren road pumping station needs replacing but the cost would be millions and the A379 road would have to be closed for months. SWW keep ...

Has anyone seen them in action yet. If so and you recognise them why not name and shame them on here. My suspision is the majority are a brought in rent a mob and dont even live locally.
