Finally, with a view to the Neighbourhood Plan (NP) for Salcombe, town council are pleased to announce that the website dedicated to all aspects of this important public engagement exercise is now live and can be visited at Contrary to some misguided opinions, this is not merely a forum. Much work has gone into explaining the background of the NP and there is a blog facility available for everyone to make their comments. We are now more enthusiastic than ever to encourage people to come forward and get involved with the NP steering group, or maybe you have skills in other areas like researching, poster creation or you may feel drawn to a particular topic heading that you would like to contribute to. This engagement will ultimately take the plan forward and benefit the whole town with improvements on many levels. Should you wish to get involved further please give the Salcombe Town Clerk Gill Claydon a call on 01548 842282 or email to
