The Lawn Working Group

The Lawn Working Group was established by the Town Council at its meeting in February 2018, with the aim of considering the desired vision of the Dawlish Lawn, and recommending whether a play park should be constructed and if so where, what size and purpose, how other projects would impact on the lawn such as bandstand renewal, cycle path routes, other facilities and bridges and establishing how each project might be funded.  Members of the group resolved to allow members of the public to observe their meetings, which take place most Friday’s at 10.00 a.m. in the Manor House, Old Town Street, Dawlish.

The group will report back to the Town Council with interim updates before presenting its final recommendations.

The results of the consultation exercise can be viewed here and here.
