Latest News from the Parish Council.

Parish Council Meeting

Shillingford Parish Council held its online meeting on Monday 10th August 2020 at 6 pm.  The meeting was well attended and guest speaker, Michael Bracken from The Woodland Trust, answered questions relating to the proposed purchase of Shillingford Wood.

The next Parish Council meeting will be held on Monday 14th December 2020 at 7:30 pm in the village hall.

Road Closures

Works are due to take place on the A379 to the western side of the Devon Hotel roundabout, starting next week (week commencing 19th October 2020), so there will be traffic management on that side of the roundabout in addition to the traffic management on the eastern side of the junction.

Initially, this will be 2 - 3 days for vegetation clearance associated with the new school junction.  The developer is then expected to start works to remove the retaining wall the following week which will also involve traffic management to allow for safe working.

Once that is complete work is expected to start on delivering the access itself.  The traffic management will be similar to that already in place, with contraflows allowing a lane to remain open in each direction.

Internet at Shillingford Abbot

Cllr Parrott and Cllr Carr (with help from his grandson) have been hard at work trying to improve internet speeds in Shillingford Abbot.  They have signed up to the Community Fibre Partnership and the next stage will be looking for grants and funding.

On behalf of the residents of Shillingford St George and Shillingford Abbot, the Parish Council would like to thank Boyces Nursery for the wonderful flower displays that have been brightening up the parish this summer.


The Parish Council discussed two planning applications at the recent meeting: the first was for construction of a new self-catering holiday lodge at South View Farm.  The Parish Council decided to support the application but only if the footpath remains and the proposed development doesn't infringe on the footpath.  The second application was for a Tree Preservation Order at St Georges Church.  This application was opposed, as it was felt to be unnecessary.

Village Green

The Parish Council are aware that residents have been asking if the grass on the village green could be cut.  As the Parish Council are not responsible for the village green and the trustees refuse to allow us to cut the grass, we are not in a position to cut it.

Village hall

The Village Hall Diary is now available online and we're able to take bookings by email.
