DEEDOODLE I wouldn't have time to be a Dawlish Councillor as i am to busy travelling and enjoying my retirement as i have done for the past 14 years and hope to do so for the foreseeable future.
@leatash - I just feel sorry for you if you think an outright ban on dogs on our beaches would produce a positive effect to the success of Dawlish as a seaside town. With that attitude you would, more than likely, be welcomed as a dawlish town councillor. In my opinion.
DEEDOODLE i think you will find the sewage all goes to the sewage works in Warren Road it's pumped from the viaduct to Sandy Lane then on to Warren Road the pipes on the beach are obsolete. I visit loads of seaside towns that unlike Dawlish are thriving and yet have a no dog policy on there beaches and some towns have specific dog walking areas with poo bags and bins supplied.
Am I being cynical or is there a crane lift nerby.
@leatash - if the reason is because they pee and poo on the beach, i think you will find the dawlish population contribute so much more pee and poo. the only difference is we chop it up a bit and pipe it a hundred yards out just to come back on the tide. I frequent the beaches, Teignmouth and Dawlish, and most of the year round the majority of those using the beaches are dog walkers. Ban ...
Dogs should never be allowed on beaches at anytime.
Dawlish Town Beach and Coryton Cove dogs are permitted along the seashore from the slipway adjacent to the Railway Station until 230 metres before Red Rock at Dawlish Warren dogs are not permitted along the seashore from the slipway to Coryton Cove from 1 May to 30 September See more... https://www.devonlive.com/whats-on/family-kids/devon-beach-dog-bans-devon-1524260
