UPDATE: 31/07/2020 - Exciting news, the design plans have now been received and are currently with our Web Design company waiting to be uploaded to the TORFIELD PLAY PARK PAGE. There will an opportunity to respond via a comments link on that page.
UPDATE 01.07.20 - TORFIELD PLAYPARK: Will remain closed due to Health & Safety Issues and will remain closed until the regeneration can be completed. The delay, as we are sure you aware, is out of our control. However, we hope to be in a position over the next month or so to have some outline designs in place, once potential Contractors are in a position to access the site. UPDATE: Contractors have been on site to access, measure and submit plans and costings, we should have these within the next couple of weeks. First couple of draft plans have been received and look fabulous. We hope to be able to put them on the website in the very near future.
We are still unable to hold full Parish Council meetings, however, we are now investigating the possibility of holding 'virtual' meetings in the very near future. - ALL ENQUIRIES IN THE FIRST INSTANCE SHOULD GO TO THE CLERK ON 0770 770 9390 or EMAIL firstname.lastname@example.org

Hello, and welcome to the Marldon Parish Council website. Through this website Parishioners can access details of the Parish Council business. There are Parish Council notice boards by the shops in Village Road, in Vicarage Hill near Pembroke Park, and at Compton. The main Parish notice board is near the Post Office and will display the minutes of the last meeting and the agenda for the next meeting three clear days before the meeting is due. This information will also be on this website.
Normally the Parish Council meets in the Community Room of the Village Hall on the second Monday of the Month (unless it is a Bank Holiday) at 7.15pm, the first 15 minutes being for members of the public to bring any matters they wish to the attention of Councillors, who may deal with them once the meeting proper starts at 7.30pm. Members of the public, and press, are welcome to observe the Council in session but cannot participate once the meeting proper has started unless standing orders are suspended.
Each year, usually in May, there is an Annual Meeting of the Parish Council in the main hall, when the Chairman reports on the year past and looks forward to the future. The Accounts summary is also presented. Parishioners are able to voice their opinions or concerns during the meeting, and there is usually a guest speaker.
You are welcome to contact myself at any time by phone, mail or E-mail, and a list of Councillors and their contact details are available on this site and on the noticeboards.
If you wish to report a fault connected to Highways you can do this through the Devon County Council website at https://new.devon.gov.uk/roadsandtransport/report-a-problem/
FINANCE - 2019 / 2020 INTERNAL AUDIT - has been official postponed. The year end accounts and AGAR (Governance statement) will be published 30th September 2020.

The Parish Council has had to close Torfield Playpark due
to health & safety issues. It is
regrettable, however, the safety of the kiddies using the equipment and the
area is the Parish Council’s main priority.
The PlayPark has been in need of maintenance and upgrading
for many years. Most of the equipment is dated and the whole area unfit for
purpose; the closure is seen as the ideal opportunity to regenerate the
PlayPark to a high standard and provide a much needed resource for the children
of the Village.
Whilst the Parish Council does have access to s106 funds,
there would always have to be match-funding sought via Grants or other
financial options. The regeneration of
the PlayPark is not a quick fix, it will take some months, however, it is hoped
that the Parish Council will be able to instruct the regeneration in the very near future. We are hugely aware that there is no where for the kiddies to play at the moment and we are working hard to get the Playpark up and running as soon physically possible.
The Parish Council is actively obtaining quotes and plans
for the PlayPark and whilst it is hugely disappointing, the PlayPark will
remain closed until the upgrade is completed.
Marldon will then have a wonderful space for its young children.
It is envisaged that the PlayPark area will be levelled off
into two sections, a lower section for the 0 – 5 year olds, with a pathway for
prams and disabled access and a higher level for the 6 -12year olds, and a
picnic area with tables and seats in the middle.
There will be new fencing to secure the PlayPark.
As soon as the plans have been received and confirmed, they
will be published on the Parish Council Website and on boards near the PlayPark.
Residents in the immediate vicinity will be informed of start and end dates
and it is hoped there will be minimal disruption.
Any queries or questions, please do not hesitate to contact
the Clerk. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone

DELAYED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Torfield, Broomhill Meadow & Jubilee Meadow. The Parish Council are pleased to announce it will hold a Public Consultation regarding the upgrading of the above Council owned sites. The Consultation will commence as soon as feasibly possible, we need to ensure that everyone is involved and can return their completed forms - if there is another lockdown those who do not have access to computers would not be able to post the forms back to us. The Consultation will take the form of a delivered leaflet to each property, an online Consultation and an Open Day - the latter cannot be arranged yet due to the current COVID-19 restrictions.
PLEASE KEEP CHECKING THE WEBSITE FOR UPDATES.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The Parish Council has not produced any other consultation - if you have seen Notices around the Village, these have been created by someone not associated with the Parish Council and without the Parish Councils authorisation. Once we have all the information in place all our Notices will be headed MARLDON PARISH COUNCIL and signed off by the Clerk.
Please note, that ALL correspondence for the Council should be emailed to the Parish Council's Address not to individual Councillors addresses. Many thanks. (see CONTACT DETAILS)
