Anne Marie Morris, MP


Let your current MP Anne Marie Morris know how you feel about losing your beach and historic sea wall and Network Rail's plans for the coastline. Email: annemarie@annemariemorris.co.uk Phone: 01626 368 277 Write: 2 Salisbury House, Salisbury Road, Newton Abbot, Devon, TQ12 2DF Anne Marie Morris has written to Network Rail asking them to clarify a number of matters regarding the Parson’s Tunnel to Teignmouth Resilience Project. "The concerns I have raised on behalf of constituents have been in the spirit of achieving the very best possible outcome for the resilience works. This is certainly not an ‘anti rail’ campaign. “After meeting many of my constituents, they have expressed genuine concerns regarding the works. The many objections both I and my constituents have raised have been in the spirit of achieving the very best outcome for the resilience works and I am keen to express that this is not an ‘anti-rail’ campaign. We must ensure that all avenues and proposals have been explored as this is an historic, iconic, and much-loved part of my constituency. “Of concern to many is the lack of clarity they have been encountering and the confusion over the scale model that has been viewed. I am advised that the model itself does not give a correct representation of the actual planned works and is not to scale. “Many have stated it is unclear as to where the old line was and therefore it is difficult to ascertain how much of the beach is to be lost. While it may be the case that less beach is going to be lost than in previous proposals, the model only gives an indication of the breach at mean low water and many have started they believe this to be deliberately misleading. I have been informed that the new sea wall will not move any further than the current boundary of Sprey Point, but when one looks at the model, the revetments actually extend far further than this. More clarity is needed as to the exact extent of the beach loss and I would have expected more granular detail."

Councillor Martin Wrigley


Martin Wrigley is a local champion and a councillor who helps local residents and stands up for the area. He wants to do more and will be an outstanding MP. Martin’s priorities are tackling Climate Change, support our community, our schools and our NHS. Too many government processes and systems have lost sight of the people and lack empathy for the people that they are supposed to be helping. Universal Credit demonstrates a system that just doesn’t care. The South West and Teignbridge/Newton Abbot in particular have been poorly served and starved of much needed funds for our schools, NHS and critical services and Martin is determined to work to put that right. Environmental pollution is killing our beautiful county with single-use plastics and air pollution high on the list. Martin has been helping reduce plastics and dedicated to encouraging a new carbon free economy Martin has worked in the hi-tech industry for over 30 years, with a background in engineering and senior management. Growing up in a Navy family, Martin lived all over the world. Twenty years ago, he and his young family chose to settle in Devon. A former Mayor of Dawlish, Martin is currently a Dawlish Town and Teignbridge District Councillor. Martin says “I want future generations to have every opportunity we have now - and more. We have the technology and the desire to put our environment first and to support our community, our schools and our NHS. With the public’s backing, we can build a flourishing economy and a caring society while maintaining the ecology and beauty of our local area.” Email: martin.wrigley.ppc@gmail.com, martin.wrigley@gmail.com or martin.wrigley@teignbridge.gov.uk Facebook: @CllrMartinWrigley Instagram: @Martin.Wrigley.PPC Twitter: @MartinWrigley Website: www.newtonabbotlibdems.org Write: Newton Abbot Constituency Liberal Democrats, 26 Cofton Hill, Cockwood, Dawlish, EX6 8RB Phone: 0797 708 8888
