9/11/03 GRA LETTER DATED 11 SEPTEMBER FROM MARGARET PACKER
TO PARKS AND ESTATES MANAGEMENT, TORBAY COUNCIL (BY SNAIL MAIL!!!)
Reference: Bye-law Signs Galmpton Warborough Common
I telephoned you recently regarding the replacing and tidying up of the Bye-law signs on The Common, our association members have asked us to contact your department.
In addition to the "No Parking" and "No horse riding after lOam" signs I wonder would you consider adding "No lighting of fires - Scheme of Management 9(h"). Portable barbeques being the "in thing" but not everyone clears up evidence of a picnic.
Regarding The Windmill, I cross The Common quite regularly but do not recall seeing any "Private Property" or Keep Out" notices. One assumes that the structure is quite safe.
Finally may I ask that if we were able to raise sufficient money would it be possible to replace the blue metal bus shelter with a more elegant structure with a stone base and wooden roof perhaps.

9/11/03 REPLY TO ABOVE FROM TORBAY COUNCIL DATED 6th NOVEMBER 2003
RE: REPLACEMENT BUS SHELTER - WINDY CORNER
Thank you for your letter of 11th September 2003, which reached my department on 30th October 2003.
Torbay Council is seeking to upgrade the passenger facilities within the Bay and Windy Corner presents us with a number of issues that may be assisted by the arrival of your request.
We also wish to replace the shelter in question but have a number of safety issues with the current site. Our options are:
Achieving one of the above would mean that Torbay Council would assist in the replacement cost of any new shelter and associated works.
I will copy this letter to your ward Councillors making them aware of your request and my response.
Please do comment on the above directly to the address shown above so that the delay incurred so far is not carried forward.
Do not hesitate to contact me on this or any other matter concerning public transport in your area.
