From Louise Dyke on 30th September 2015:
I would like to raise your attention to the cancellation of the school bus from Landkey to Park school. The alternative route through venn is in my mind dangerous and ludicrous nice for the 2 employees to walk the route on a clear sunny morning, what happens when its dark raining or icy? My husband and I are both attending the appeal in Exeter on Monday 12th October and have the written backing of our Mp via email and would like to offer any parents a lift if they cant attend due to transport problems.
Emma Marshall (Councillor) sent this reply on 4th October 2015:
Thank you for your much needed interest in this ridiculous situation.
I am myself a parent of a Park School child. I will be attending the appeal myself along with Richard Edgell County Councillor and the Headteacher of Landkey Primary School Kate Fairbrother.
We have a lot of support from parents but could still better our case if we had more, so if you know anyone then please forward on the email for Anthony Mordaunt the Transport Officer for appeals. anthony.mordaunt@devon.gov.uk.
Let's hope that common sense will prevail.
From colin Antell on 14th August 2015:
After e.mailing you about a month ago about the road hedge in Tanners Road, i see nothing has been done. Why is this not done? as all the other by-roads out of Landkey have been trimmed, so why not the playing field hedge?
From Elizabeth Antell on 28th July 2015:
still nothing being done about problems, just a road sweeper up and down when there is nothing to sweep until the hedges and gardens are cut back
From Elizabeth Antell on 20th July 2015:

as a resident of Tanners Road, could I raise two points of concern. The first is the overgrown playing field hedge, which every year is allowed to grow right into the road, making it difficult for drivers and pedestrians, especially when cars are parked in the road. Also the "gardens" at the end of tanners road have grown so high its impossible to see any coming traffic. Would like it sorted please!
From Ben Totterdell on 2nd June 2015:
Outline Planning fro Community Building.

I am very supportive of the need for a high class community building for Landkey, which is long overdue, and appreciate the difficulties faced in trying to find a suitable site and the efforts made by the Parish Council in doing so. However the proposed scheme does seem to be far from ideal and it would be such a shame to severely impact such a wonderful existing community facility as the Millennium Green in order to create a new one. There are many issues with the current proposal that raise concerns - including limited and unsuitable access, loss of rare safe, open green space and drainage issues. I appreciate that this is only an outline application but would like reassurance that other options are also being explored.
