We have been a bit quiet on here but rest assured we have still been working hard behind the scenes to save our beach and railway.
We'll be adding more posts about where we're up to and what is happening over the next few days but we thought it would be a good idea to remind everyone, and show the new followers, what we are about and what we are trying to achieve. As always, please keep posting your pictures, asking questions and commenting on our page.
Save Holcombe and Teignmouth Beach Mission Statement
The association is a not for profit organisation, which has been formed by volunteers for the purpose of saving and securing the future of Holcombe and Teignmouth Beach, its access, wildlife and environment for all to enjoy.
To do this, the association will work together, where possible, with Network Rail and other stakeholders to seek and lobby for practical and sympathetic solutions to the threats posed by Network Rail's current proposals, whilst also preserving the protecting the historic coastal railway.
The association will seek to highlight and raise public awareness of the damage that Network Rail's currently proposed plan would cause to the beaches, sea, environment, wildlife, flora and fauna, including but not limited to the protected species in the area, and to work with other bodies to secure their retention and enhancement where appropriate. It will also aim to raise awareness of the disruption to residents, businesses and visitors which would result from the proposed plans.
Save Holcombe and Teignmouth Beach Association recognise and applaud Network Rail's published Environmental Policy and will seek to hold them accountable for the current, and any perceived, future failure to follow this.
Keep an eye out for further updates and stay safe.
