A questionable butterfly



Funny you should point this out, as I looked at this site this morning and couldn't belive how many were listed.  Usually only a few are for sale, so it makes a nice change to see such a selection.  I guess it is the start of the house selling season.  It would be good to see how fast or slow they sell as this would point to demand.

I found the below as proof that ...

As far as I am aware all new builds have to pay the £350 whether it is 1 house or multiple houses.  I guess the 'deemed' is in relation to the SANGS.

With the Sandpipers and Peppermint Park care homes being withdrawn and housing put in their place, when will Dawlish/Dawlish Warren get a new Facility so that locals can actually stay local when need additional support! I see that Redrow Homes next to Sainsbury's have got their phasing plan on the Teignbridge website and it shows a 60 bed Extra Care Facility/residential, what is the betting ...
