Well Fred Basset, If more attention was given to what your councils/officers get up to, then we may all see a clear and level playing field. Most people moan like hell when something smacks them in the face but do nothing about it. Shareholders are the name of the game when it comes to over priced accommodation. And by that I mean companies that offer highly priced to rent housing and housing for ...

@Lynne Lynne give it a rest will you. You know dam well what goes on yet every time somebody posts something your response is always the same and unfortunatly its becoming boring to read. Unlike yourself we dont all have time to scrutinise every bit of news, council minutes, public web pages, etc

@DEEDOODLE . Well said and abosolutly spot on. These housing developers just use their massisve profits made by selling their poor quality wooden huts to offer back handers to councils in order to buy out of their requirement to provide a percentge of affordable housing and or infastructure facilities. What the buyers of these new type properties seem to fail to understand is that unless they ...

I wait with interest if they catch the people to see if they're local. Chippy Chaps has also posted CCTV footage of people trying to break into their establishment, wondering if it's related as has Rock and Sole.

I'll give the police 5 stars for trying to find these scumbags as I watched the police chopper whizzing backwards and forwards over the new shanty town next to the woods for a considerable amount of time. The description of these low lifes certainly points to going prepared considering dark clothes and faces covered, oh! and the knife...nearly forgot that one. The issue is not with the ...

A driver was threatened at knifepoint by a group of men who tried to steal his car in Dawlish on Tuesday night.

In the last few years I have seen a few housing estates go up around Dawlish/Warren and, in my opinion, these housing estates are far from alleviating the housing shortage for those people in local communities who need social housing. If you look at the developer/estate agent sites peddling these overpriced and poorly built homes, again in my opinion, they match and in some cases exceed the price ...

Councils in Devon have welcomed a multi-billion pound boost to social housing across England as part of the drive to build the homes communities need. A Teignbridge District Council spokesman said: “Teignbridge has been very successful this year in applications for government funding, securing a total of £10m for town centre regeneration and unlocking opportunities for key infrastructure ...

And not all of them are live - they couldn't afford to do that. So today Cowley Bridge road is alive and maybe Topsham Road is dead. Tomorrow they liven up somewhere else and kill off a live one. Nowing which is alive and which is dead is the problem. So we must assume they are all alive unless you know how to tell the dead ones.
