In May next year there will be local elections. This is a chance for our community to choose who will represent us in Teignbridge, and to choose who will run our Parish Councils.
The Parish Council is the most local level of government. Parish Councillors are volunteers with a wide variety of ages, experiences and skills to bring. It is a real opportunity to contribute to the life of the community by helping to organise and fund local events, commenting on local planning applications and taking responsibility for working with other parts of government to try to make our communities better. It can also bring challenges of course and I hope Dunchideock can find a council that will work well together, and with others.
If you would like to know more about what is involved in being a councillor, or how to apply, or if you need help with any other local matter, we are happy to help. Feel free to contact us.
District councillors Andy Swain. Andrew.Swain@teignbridge.gov.uk, Charles Nuttall, Alison Foden and County councillor Alan Connett
