DTC have put a tender forward for a childrens trail leading up to a flagship  play park at the manor which will be accessible for all children with disabilities able bodied children and children in wheelchairs.  I am chair of the Lawn Working Group that are pushing this project forward.  We will be doing a full consultation hopefully end of February beginning of March with the plans for everyone to see and give feedback on.  We have been working on this for the past three years and I have done reports on it as it progressed.  There was a full consultation with all the schools playgroups nurseries and other young peoples groups in Dawlish the response was amazing.  If anyone has any questions please feel free to inbox me.  We can assure you we are fighting for funds and for this project

@Duckileaks - can you tell us where you've got that info from please? Not saying it isn't true just wondering from where the news has emanated.  Just tried several online searches using various words etc but can find nothing including nothing on TDC press release page. Thanks.

Thanks Linda. Any chance you could explain for the benefit of readers of this site why TDC funds the Teignmouth Play park but (seemingly?) not the proposed new one at the Manor.

The money for the refurbishment of Teignmouth Play Park has been in the Teignbridge budget for a few years it couldn't befor now because of COVID.  We started our plan 3 years ago but because of COVID it was very slow.  It is now coming to fruition when the plan is ready for consultation I will make sure it is out on here for feedback.  There is some money in the budget for Dawlish but we need to sort pkans and costs out first.

Thank you. Realise now why I missed this. It was only agreed at today's TDC full council meeeting. Usually I am on the ball when it comes to council agendas but missed this one!
