Road from Marystowe by Chris Beighton

Chichester Arms Update

West Devon Borough Council have agreed to the request of the Parish Council that the pub is registered as an Asset of Community Value.
If the owner of a registered asset wants to sell it, they have to notify the Borough Council.  There is then a six-week period in which a 'valid community group' can express an interest in buying it. If they do, there is then a further six-month period in which the asset cannot be sold unless it is to a local community group.  However, the owner of such an asset is not bound to accept an offer from a local community group.

Traffic Update

The Parish Council endorsed the report by Chillaton parish councillors, at its meeting last week. It also heard from local residents about traffic problems on the road into the village from Tavistock and shared their concerns. Further work will now be undertaken to reach agreement in principle with Highways over what might be done, if funds were available.
With the prospect of resurfacing work taking place in Chillaton in coming months, parish councillors will be trying to ensure that the improvements we want in road markings in the village are implemented at the same time.

Got a minute?

Actually, have you got quite a lot?  The Parish Clerk is trying to complete an archive of the Parish Council's previous agendas and minutes. Currently there are no copies of Minutes before 1998 and some gaps in other records.  If you were a parish councillor or clerk and still have some of your old records, Emma James, the current Parish Clerk, would like to hear from you.  Emma can be contacted at
