Looks like the Town Council is trying to prevent the sea wall works from happening...

Well there's a surprise, why do they seem to think they know better than anyone else, good job they are not in government would not be worth giving us a vote for anything as they would still do what they wanted! Would save money though on specialist consultants to advise on sea walls as they obviously know more about sea walls than those who do it for a living. Hopefully they'll be able to present their findings at this meeting that challenges those specialists and then launch a Town Council business in advising other areas on their sea wall/flood prevention issues undercutting those with the degrees in the subject!

Just goes to show what a joke our elected councillors are.

They will soon be complaining when the wall is damaged again and the trains have to stop running.

 

As @leatash has said, will they be happy to pay for any future damage?

What is their reason for trying to stop it?

The other point is what will it cost i presume they will require a legal team to fight the application so it will be us joe public who will pay huge amounts of money to satisfy there ego's

Exactly, I hope they don't use local funds to attempt to stop the wall, if they are truly acting in the interests of the town then spend the money and efforts in clearing the seawall, THAT is what is going to stop visitors to Dawlish. Having walked it today from the Warren to Dawlish it was so uncomfortable with all the stones laying. The walkway should be clear and having witnessed wheelchair users and child buggy users turn back because it was too uncomfortable to walk, there lies a bigger problem of visitors to Dawlish. A high wall never stopped visiters to the Warren and won't to Dawlish. Leave it painful to walk from  the Warren, no cycling signs not clearly visible, dog rule signs not clear, those are the issues to be dealt with and what I would like to see our local funds used for.  To save any sloped shoulder Lib Dem approach, it may be the rail peoples ownership, but you as our Town council should be pushing them to get it sorted, not dealing with the wall, may cause irreparable damage to the economy of Dawlish
