Shaldon Ferry fails to reopen for Christmas
Despite the political will to open the Shaldon Ferry temporarily for Christmas, red tape and bureaucracy means that it just won’t happen.
The Teignmouth to Shaldon Ferry closed down when the operator claimed that it was no longer viable to continue, and the ferry would only make money on Boxing day and New Year’s Day, depending on the weather.
Cllr David Cox said: ” Bureaucracy has defeated us on this, and we cannot do any more.’
It is hoped to reopen the ferry in spring.
