South Hams District Council website
The South Hams Council website is the first point of contact to reach the various council departments and officers. The website aims to give local residents all useful facts and links about their own particular area and property, including recycling and waste collection, council tax, and your councillors and MP. You can report a missed bin collection, or a bottle bank that needs emptying, and you can also pay your Council Tax online or contact your local MP or councillors. The website also shows details of all planning applications – if you don’t know the exact planning number or address, you can still search for something by parish.
Where to report highway problems and faults
DEVON COUNTY COUNCIL WEBSITE is now the ONLY site to report ALL highways problems rather than phoning through to the council; you can report all sorts of things including highway damage, pavement damage, blocked drains, or street lights that aren’t working, and areas of Japanese Knotweed or overgrown hedges and roadside verges for example. There is an interactive map which you use to identify the specific location. It does also give you a link to make a claim for vehicle or property damage from DCC.
Kingsbridge Area Food Bank
Based at The Avon Centre, Wallingford Road, in Kingsbridge, this facility offers support to families in crisis in Kingsbridge and the surrounding parishes, and is a very necessary form of support in recent years – it is particularly valuable during holiday times when young families are at home. Contributions can be taken to our community shop here in the village, or put in the collection points in Tesco and Morrisons, and to Age Concern; further information can be found on their own Facebook page here, and more can be found on their own website:
