It took just 90 seconds for the Teignbridge Locality Committee to rush through their meeting on Thursday morning.

The 90 second duration even included the election of Cllr George Gribble as the chairman for the meeting and the time it took for him to walk from his seat at the back of the council chamber at Forde House in Newton Abbot to the top table chairman’s seat.

Previous meetings of the Locality Committee have included updates from Network Rail on the South West Rail Resilience Programme, a presentation on the South West Youth Games and NHS representatives outlining models of the care in the region, with the meetings often seeing presentation given on matters of interest to the Teignbridge region.

 

But Thursday’s meeting saw no presentations from outside bodies on the agenda and no items on the agenda saw any discussion.
