From David Netherway on 22nd March 2021:

Hi

I have been walking to Landkey from Swimbridge on Sunday mornings to collect newspapers from the Stores. I have been in the habit of collecting litter which was getting better I thought...I am sure others are doing the same....but was overwhelmed by the  sight of a huge pile of discarded black bin liners of household rubbish yesterday on the lane leading towards Venn Quarry...Grid Reference about 590306 (in case you think I was lost I leave early and  take varied routes to reach Landkey by 9.00am shop opening time). I am afraid the pile was beyond my carrier bag capacity.

Why do people do this !!!???

From Mark Stowell on 28th February 2021:

I would like to bring to the parish the ever increasing issue of dog owners letting their dogs foul around the village and not removing it .

it is very apparent that this is increasing and that it will become a health issue let alone is a disgusting issue .

additionally the poor bin located at the top of the new development located on birch road isn’t adequate and often is over full .

 

Richard Halliday (Chairman, Parish Council) sent this reply on 8th March 2021:
The Parish Council and the Millennium Green Trust have funded the installation and servicing of several dog poo bins in Landkey and I agree there is no excuse for this issue. Your comments regarding the Birch Road bin have been noted. Thanks

From Mary Metivier on 23rd May 2020:

As we cannot have meetings at the moment I am enquiring as to whether the Parish Council has applied for the planning permission for the Devon Air Ambulance landing site.

From Toby Roberts on 24th November 2019:

The minutes from the 6th nov meeting are not up on the website yet. When will they be available?

does anyone know what the position of the 40 limit traffic calming sign will be on the road from Swimbridge?  I am checking and hoping that it will not interfere with the view from Newland House. 

Is there a meeting in December, what date?

very best,

Toby Roberts, Newland House

 

Richard Halliday (Chairman, Parish Council) sent this reply on 25th November 2019:
Thank you for getting in touch. The minutes from 6th November (most likely a draft, pending approval at the next meeting) will be posted within 1 month of the meeting as is required.
Any decision regarding new road signs rests with Devon County Highways and to our knowledge they have not confirmed any plan for location. If you would like to attend our next Parish Council meeting on Wednesday 4th December at 7pm we would be pleased to hear your concerns.

From Mary Metivier on 1st November 2019:

To whom it may concern

It has come to my attention, over the last two years, that Tanners Road/Birch Road traffic has increased.

The point being that some people do not drive with proper care and attention, with some people speeding. After flagging  one car down (as it was going fast) I asked the driver to slow down as people were walking up the road. I was told, not too politely, that he couldn’t see anyone and in any case it was a 60 mph limit and he would drive at that speed if he wanted to.

So my question is should a new speed limit be looked at as walkers, horse riders, cyclists and indeed car drivers could be at risk.

Richard Halliday (Chairman) sent this reply on 19th November 2019:
Thank you for raising this issue and I am sorry for my late response as I have been away. I will check but parts of Tanners Rd and Birch Rd are subject to 30mph speed limits. Either way people should (as you say) drive with due care and attention to other road users regardless of the speed limit. Getting speed restrictions extended is a long and drawn out process with Devon County Highways and in the current climate it may prove difficult to justify this option.

Can I ask you first to lodge your concern on the Devon County Council website (Highways section) directly and ask any others who feel at risk to do so also. It is better that this is done as individuals as it carries more value if several people make the same point.

If someone is driving dangerously or speeding in a restrictive area there is also the option of reporting it to the police.
