Mayor's Event - Quiz Night

Due to the current disruption in the town whilst the works are being carried out to re-lay the pavements, the Town Council has been working closely with Torridge District & Devon County Councils to try to alleviate the issues that may arise.

We have been liaising with Torridge District Council regarding relaxing Car Park charges during this period - they have offered a 15 minute concession in both car parks prior to a ticket being given (see notice below).

We have received confirmation that the roads will be open for normal use this weekend.

We have been advised that the works are still expected to follow a 4 week programme.

The Town Council and Chamber of Trade will continue in dialogue with Torridge District Council and Devon County Council regarding car parking next week. The concession was offered today in the immediate but we will continue to work with them and will keep you notified.
