OMG Noooooooo, we can't have change!!!!
Let's hope that there are no gorillas placed near it.
This planning application is on the agenda at this coming Thursday's (23rd Aug) town council planning committee meeting.
It does seem odd that they want to steer people away from visiting the Warren, but if this is approved it will mean even more visitors.
Dawlish Town Council is recommending refusal. Here's why
PARISH: DAWLISH WARD: Dawlish Central And North East APPLICATION REF: 18/00950/FUL OFFICER: Anna Holloway DECISION LEVEL: COMM LOCATION: Dawlish Warren Main Resort Grassed Area Dawlish Warren Devon EX7 0NF PROPOSAL: Installation of 34 metres high observation wheel, loading and unloading platform with guarding and kiosk
Comment: RESOLVED by majority of Members present and voting that this Council recommends REFUSAL of this application as the size of the structure is too big, the proposal to have the lights on until midnight is too late causing unnecessary pollution and disruption to local residents and wildlife. Dawlish Warren is a family based site and therefore is not busy that late. The proposal is also a direct contradiction to the letter from the Principal Delivery Officer of Teignbridge District Council regarding Dawlish Warren dated 16 August 2018 (to be discussed at a future meeting). The application also mentions that district councilors were consulted but Cllr Wrigley wished to note that he was not one of them and also abstained from the vote. Members further suggested that a temporary, seasonal wheel like Exmouth have opted for might be a more appropriate attraction for the location.
Although they see nothing wrong having 1000's of home's built with little to no supporting infrastructure, outstanding. Keep up the great work elected officials.
