PARISH PLAN QUESTIONNAIRE – LET US KNOW WHAT YOU THINK
During March you will receive a Parish Plan Questionnaire – this is your opportunity to tell us what you think about a range of topics and help us to identify the needs and aspirations of the whole community. You can return your completed questionnaire to The Old Library Room, Chudleigh Knighton Village Hall, the phone box in Hennock or Teign Village Social Club. Please return them by Friday 12th April.

PARISH LENGTHSMAN SERVICE
The Parish Council contracted a Parish Lengthsman recognising that there were and continue to be highway maintenance activities that Devon County Council can no longer do.  The duties include strimming of verges, clearing of bus shelters, checking and clearing of some drains and gullies, spraying of weed killer through the main thoroughfares of Chudleigh Knighton, Hennock and Teign Village. The Lengthsman also reacts to one-off situations which require urgent attention.  2019/20 will be the third year of a three year contract and the Parish Council will start thinking about a new contract commencing in 2020/21 - the work of the Parish Lengthsman has been very visible and very much appreciated by local residents but the Council is continually looking at ways to improve and so if you have any comments/feedback please email/’phone the Clerk at clerk@hennockpc.org.uk or 07841 215606.

PROPOSED AFFORDABLE HOUSING DEVELOPMENT IN HENNOCK
Teignbridge District Council has formally pulled out of the acquisition of the land at Newhouses, Five Lanes in Hennock because its advisors have said that the restrictive covenants on the land would limit mortgage ability for self-build/custom-build. However, Hastoe Housing Association, a large national rural specialist, is in discussions with the landowners to bring forward this land as a rural exception site with a view to providing 100% affordable housing – somewhere between 6-8 houses with a mixed tenure of affordable rented and shared ownership so this is really positive news for Hennock.
