On a walk I noticed these trenches dug in a field. Anyone have an idea what they may be for? There is extensive home building going on in the local vicinity.

TRENCHES

 

Just curious as to the reason for them. Seems a strange thing for agricultaural purposes unless they are some sort of drainage system.

Probably there gun emplacements to be used against the marauding TDC planning dept and their stupid SANGS war that they have involved the town in at the tax payers expense. SANGS is the responsibility of the government and is upto the individual developers to make provision for by allocating their own land.

Drainage trenches due to the huge amount of rain we're having?

Very witty FB. Very witty.

But..........if you click on this link and scroll down you will see that the south coast of Devon (like around this bit of

Devon!) is an area that could be in line for fracking.

(Thinks: Wonder what would make all those landowners more dosh? Housing developments or fracking for shale gas?)

Dont think they need much land Lynne just the permits to drill under everything, at least fracking would probably bring jobs and wealth instead of loads of problem families from Exeter Newton Abbot and beyond

Fracking will contaminate the water table, adversely effect agriculture and the natural environment and undermine the foundations of buildings in the area. Plus it shows the lack of commitment this government has to reducing our carbon emissions.

Dawlish like most Devon towns only has one industry and that's tourism, fracking would probably put an end to that too and reduce employment.

Who'd want to holiday near the English Fracking Riviera?

 

First I've heard of 'problem families' moving into the new housing. I didn't know so many of them could afford to buy.

Woodcock, you'll learn that he goes for the sensationalist "Sun" newspaper headlines in order to scare easily influenced readers of his ill-informed rants. 

 

Two people have pressed Agree on his post, but don't have it in them to post why they agree...
