Buckfastleigh Town Council Meeting 7th April 2021 – Key Messages

1.   Teignbridge District Council Car Parking Charges – Members expressed their disappointment concerning  the proposed increase to parking charges in the town centre. Due to the lack of availability of on-street parking many residents are dependent upon the use of the car parks which is even more prevalent with so many people working from home. It was also highlighted that the time permitted to use The Globe car park should be increased to at least 2 hours.

2.   Tourism and Recreation – We will be inviting representatives from all the organisations who facilitate tourism and recreation activities in the town to a remote meeting to find out what difficulties they are facing, what events they are planning and whether we can help in any way.

3.   Buckfastleigh Sports Ground – We understand that the recent ground works and BMX activity is permitted on a temporary basis and that any concerns should be addressed to the Sports Club.


Full minutes will be available on the website after the next Town Council Meeting.
