October Parish News

AFFORDABLE HOUSING CONSULTATION EVENTS WELL SUPPORTED

The two consultation events held in Chudleigh Knighton and Hennock at the beginning of October were well attended and a significant number of feedback forms were received after the events.  The feedback is now being collated and a report will be presented to the Council at its next meeting on the 14th November 2017.

PLEASE CUT BACK BRAMBLES OVERHANGING THE ROAD/PAVEMENT FROM YOUR PROPERTY

There are a significant number of properties within the Parish where brambles and briar are overhanging pavements/roads and causing a nuisance and in some cases, a danger to pedestrians. Please cut these back.

LITTER PREVENTION CAMPAIGN

Motorists and passengers who throw rubbish from their vehicles are the focus of a new litter prevention campaign launched by Teignbridge District Council, aimed at cleaning up the district. The campaign began with the hard hitting message of “Litterers, we’re all watching you” focusing around fast food outlets and in lay-bys that are popular with motorists who drive there to eat their fast food. The message will enforce that there is a £75 fine for dropping litter. The campaign has also seen the launch of a new online web form where the public are being encouraged to report litter thrown from vehicles by visiting www.teignbridge.gov.uk/litter. “See It, Hate It, Report It” is aimed at empowering the public to report any offences and help Teignbridge fine offenders.
