Dunchideock Parish Council
What Does the Parish Council Do?
An excellent description is on the Devon Association of Local Council's page here. In our small parish, we have few responsibilities but we do maintain democratic representation on behalf of our parishioners.
When & Where does the Parish Council Meet?
Parish Council meetings normally take place on the second Tuesday of alternate months, starting with January. Additional special meetings are convened when planning applications need to be discussed and responded to within a specific deadline set by Teignbridge District Council. We meet in our Village Hall.
Planning Charter for Town & Parish Councils
The Planning Charter adopted by Teignbridge District Council guides the relationship between TDC and our parish. Planning is often a troublesome topic so this guide is a useful read.
