Consultation for the pre-submission draft plan started on 15th December 2014 ... more details above.

Update from Healthy Living & Wellbeing Group.

Many of you will be aware that the planning application for a development to include a new surgery  at Flow Lane was refused by the TDC Planning Committee.

 We are aware that there are concerns in The Village following this decision and would like to assure  everyone that we are working on options that we believe will ensure the retention of a surgery facility in Bishopsteignton.

 We will keep The Village informed of progress.

Christmas Market

Saturday 29th November, noon – 7.00pm

at Higher Humber Farm/Red Rock Brewery

Thirty stalls will be selling a variety of crafts and local produce at this year’s market.  The school choir, Grimspound Morris and musicians aplenty will be on hand to entertain you, the Festival catering team will run a pop up café and BBQ, and Red Rock will set up an extra bar area. 

Longer opening hours should ease congestion on local roads and some will be happy to walk to the venue during daylight hours.  In addition shuttle buses will run between the centre of the village and the market at regular intervals.  If we can reduce the number of cars on the road, the buses should provide a quick and easy way to travel.

We are hoping for favourable weather on the 29th.  However, if the weather gods are not smiling on us, remember that once you get to the farm everything is under cover.

So come along to do some Christmas shopping, enjoy the entertainment and help raise funds for Festival 15.
