DO YOU TAKE PRIDE IN KEEPING YOUR LOCAL STREETS CLEAN?
Teignbridge District Council would like to help community groups who can organise a litter pick in their local area to support the Great British Spring Clean in April 2019. Tell Teignbridge about your event and they will lend you a litter picking kit which has everything you need to keep your community clean. Please support the Great British Spring Clean: visit recycling@teignbridge.gov.uk and search litter picking.

See It Hate It Report it: If you’re fed up with seeing litter on the roadside, you can help keep our district tidy by reporting anyone you see throwing litter from their vehicle at www.teignbridge.gov.uk/litter You will need to provide the vehicle registration, vehicle description and the time, date and location of the incident. Any person found guilty of littering will be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice of £100.

AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROJECTS
Five Lanes, Hennock: The Parish Council is very disappointed that Hastoe Housing Association has withdrawn from the Hennock housing project and that the project is no longer proceeding. The Council has confirmed its agreement for a "call for sites" i.e. to seek alternative sites in Hennock and Teign Village which may be suitable for affordable housing as a rural exception site. The Housing Enabling Officer from Teignbridge District Council will attend the April Planning Committee meeting on Tuesday 23rd April at 7.30pm in The Old Library Room in Chudleigh Knighton Village Hall.
Land near Apple Tree Close, Chudleigh Knighton: Pre-app discussions are ongoing between the developer and Teignbridge District Council.
