If you want to attract more visitors to Dawlish have some seating along the sea wall. It's appalling not to have any. And we can't compete with Teignmouth it is a completely different town, with a long promenade, a pier the Pavilions, I could go on. Concentrate on what we have.
Network Rail, who own the sea wall, are very reluctant to put seating along it. Sadly. And not through the lack of trying by past and present town councillors.
The Council have continued to try and have more seating along the wall, and each time Network Rail and have turned it away, even when the Council have offered to pay for and maintain it.
Perhaps someone could write to network rail on a personal level, and ask NR why they do not like the idea of putting seating along the sea wall at various locations.
