 A Few Words From Salcombe Town Council - October 2013

We are motivated to use these quieter months for repair and renewal, Salcombe Town Council has embarked on a programme of renovation of the old Council Hall building. This is where both our Tourist Information Centre and the Salcombe Maritime Museum are situated. After professional advice culminating in a programme of works we are pleased to report that work should be starting on the building in the coming weeks, with the necessary scaffolding to access the building being erected to enable checks and repairs to the roof and building.

In addition to this we are also instructing professional tree services contractors to start work on both Bonaventure Woods and the Redfern Woods. This will amount to much needed thinning and removal of various growth in order to promote new growth within these wooded areas.

Work on the Berry, as per the five year management plan, will also be undertaken to clear dead or fallen branches and also to open-up carefully selected areas to also promote better and more controlled growth. We are acutely aware as to how sensitive an area the Berry is to residents, so please do not be alarmed at the sound of a chainsaw, these are the professionals acting under Town Council instruction!

Finally, we have assembled an excellent team of councillors in recent months but we do still have a space should anyone wish to put themselves forward. Please contact the town clerk Gill Claydon via or on 01548 842282 Tuesday Wednesday or Thursday between 10am & 2pm.

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
