We are looking for people of all ages from across the Parish of Holbeton to help with the creation of the Neighbourhood Plan providing as little or as much time as you want. The Parish Council is supporting a small group of volunteers who have met three times already and are looking to involve others either on a one off project or a regular commitment.
Under the terms of the Localism Act 2011, local councils are able to draw up Neighbourhood Plans which will establish a framework for planning and development within their area, once complete these plans become part of the statutory development plan for the area, which means that planning decisions will be informed by the Neighbourhood plan.
If you want to influence the development of your parish GET INVOLVED! – the Neighourhood Plan

It has been brought to the attention of the parish council that the road between Ramsland and Wonwell Cross is is poor condition due to subsidence. Recently a scaffolding lorry, delivering to Holbeton School, was damaged whilst pulling into one of the passing places between Ramsland Farm and Wonwell Cross. Its front nearside wheel went over the edge of the road, and the lorry had to be rescued by a recovery vehicle. Similarly it has been reported that the school bus had also done exactly the same, but in the other passing place a few yards along the road. Both sections have subsided into the field, and the larger of the two passing places is appears to be very dangerous.
The issue has been reported to Devon Highways as an emergency and the parish council will be chasing progress to ensure it is addressed in a timely fashion. In the meantime, please take care and warn as many people as possible of the danger.
