Dawlish Town Council planning committee:

 

 RESOLVED by majority of Members present and voting that this Council OBJECTS to the applications with the following comments:

• The protection of the railway is welcomed and acknowledged as a critical element of Dawlish. However, there are still questions regarding specifics of the design in terms of accessibility, safety, retention of heritage features in a conservation area and ensuring new elements are sympathetic to the existing structures and character of Dawlish as a town.

• Access to the beach for those with mobility issues is important and there is concern regarding a lack of ramp down to the beach and escape steps from the beach to the sea wall.

• The inclusion of the lift and bridge are welcomed. However, the lift design could be less brutal. Members suggested cladding in local stone and a low apex roof would be more in keeping with the original design of the station.

• Members would like to see as many historic features retained as possible, noting the comments of the Local History Group speaker and the heritage statement.

• Members agree with the concerns regarding the design of the stilling basin referenced in the Teignbridge submission.

• Members feel that a breakwater should still be considered as part of a long-term solution.
