Bishopsteignton Public Toilets
It is now looking as if the Public Conveniences in Fore Street, Bishopsteignton are to be closed as part of Teignbridge District Council’s decision to dispose of its assets. This would be terrible... the only public toilet in the village, no longer available to everyone and this includes villagers, visitors, refuse men, postmen and women, delivery drivers, emergency service drivers, local tradesmen... the list could go on. It is essential that Teignbridge District Council know how important this facility is to our village, so please contact firstname.lastname@example.org immediately to put across our village voice.
Thanks to Ruth Hardisty Dyer for this story.
Neighbourhood Plan - Ensure you have your say
The residents of Bishopsteignton Parish are being asked to give their views on the Neighbourhood Plan second Consultation. The Neighbourhood Plan is a planning tool to help guide any development in the parish over the next 20 years and will be written by the local Parish led team using community ideas and wishes. You will remember the first consultation which took place in March 2012 when all residents could give their opinions on subjects covering from housing to health and well being. Following this, there has been a housing survey, business survey and drop-in events to ensure that opinions throughout the parish are gained.
The ideas from these events have now been gathered into a further leaflet which is asking for views on some proposals and choices,this will be distributed to every household in Bishopsteignton parish in late February.
There will be an opportunity to find out further information and ask any questions at The Community Centre in Bishopsteignton on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th March 10 am until 4 pm and Sunday 9th March 10 am until 1 pm.
Following this consultation exercise, policies for the Neighbourhood Plan will be drafted into a document which will go to a Parish wide referendum later this year
For further information or to discuss the emerging plan and any input that you may wish to have in its preparation please contact the team by email at email@example.com or via Bishopsteignton Parish Council, Community Centre, Shute Hill, Bishopsteignton, TQ13 9QL.
