The Parish Council was left with two vacancies following the recent resignations of Les Howard and Bernard Stamp. After advertising the vacancies, the Parish Council voted at the August meeting to elect Peter Wareham and Claire Dummett to join the council - we welcome Cllr Wareham and Cllr Dummett!
Cllr Carr (with help from his grandson) and Cllr Parrott have been hard at work trying to improve
internet speeds in Shillingford Abbot and part of Shillingford St George. They have signed up to
the Community Fibre Partnership and there has been enough uptake to go ahead with the
upgrade; BT Openreach has been surveying the area and Cllr Carr will be contacting them to
find out when the upgrade will take place.
The Parish Council is considering investing in vehicle-activated speed signs in 2022 and will be looking at locations and costs over the coming months to see if the proposal is viable.
Village Meeting, Queens Jubilee and Teignbridge Local Plan
A village meeting on 20th July 2021 was held to discuss how to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee and discuss the Teignbridge Local Plan. Following on from this meeting a committee has been formed to work towards installing new Welcome signs to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in 2022.
The Parish Council would like to thank all those who responded to the Teignbridge Draft Local Plan Consultation - the response from the Parish Council can be found on its Local Plan page or by clicking here.
Any comments or suggestions can be forwarded to email@example.com
Whilst the actual memorial is in a good state of repair, the brickwork surrounding the Peamore War Memorial is in need of re-pointing work and the parish council will be looking to obtain grants to enable the work to be carried out.
The annual litter pick has been postponed.
The Parish Council supported one planning application at the August meeting:
Barton Cottage, Shillingford St George - Change of use and conversion of garage to holiday accommodation.
It was also proposed to support an appeal against the refusal of planning applications 21/00125/HOU and 21/00126/LBC Brookes Barn, Pengellys Farm - Single storey garden room extension.
The Parish Council is aware that residents have been asking if the grass on the village green could be cut. As the Parish Council is not responsible for the village green and the trustees refuse to allow us to cut the grass, we are not in a position to cut it.
The Village Hall Diary is now available online and we're able to take bookings by email.
