Essential decisions will still continue to be made using email consultations and delegated powers, with all Members and this will include Planning Applications.

These measures are being taken with the health and wellbeing of all Parishioners, many of whom are older or vulnerable.

Devon and Cornwall Alert - Are you Signed Up?

South Hams District Council is urging residents to sign up to the free Devon and Cornwall Alert Service provided by Devon and Cornwall Police.

The two way messaging system enables Devon and Cornwall Police to connect with their community, and tell people exactly what is happening in their local area, allowing them to respond directly with any information.

Residents can choose what type of information they’d like to receive concerning crime and anti-social behaviour, witness appeals, crime prevention, community events and local good news.

Cllr Tom Holway, Chairman at South Hams District Council and Community Safety Partnership Representative said: “I’ve been signed up to Devon and Cornwall Alert for almost as long as I’ve been a Councillor. It really is a fantastically useful system to keep you updated with crime and incidents in your local area, and being able to respond directly with any useful information is a real help to our Police Officers and PCSOs.

“You aren’t inundated with messages about every single crime that happens in your area; the information is relevant and to the point, reducing the opportunity for crime and anti-social behaviour or helping the police solve a crime.”

Registering for the alerts is a quick and simple online form, which can be found at https://alerts.dc.police.uk/ Printable forms are also available which can be completed by hand and returned.

Residents can choose to receive messages via phone, mobile, text or email. Preferences can be updated at any time, and businesses can also register for the service.
