INFORMATION FROM DEVON COUNTY COUNCIL:
IMPORTANT GOVERNMENT INFORMATION:
In this update:
Vulnerable residents should remain at home
- New government guidance
Emergency financial help available for those struggling
HM Coastguard ask you to respect the coastline
Increased concern about online grooming
Additional cash to boost active travel
Vulnerable residents urged to still stay at home
We're urging vulnerable residents to remain at home despite changes to the lockdown restrictions. Around 34,000 people in Devon have been identified as having an underlying health condition that puts them at very high risk of severe illness if they catch coronavirus.
The NHS has advised them to not to leave their homes until at least the end of June, even for essential supplies and exercise, in order to minimise face-to-face contact and prevent being exposed to the virus. There is no change to this guidance, and the rigorous ‘shielding’ measures introduced to help keep those who are considered extremely clinically vulnerable safe are still in place.
TORFIELD UPDATE: The safety work has now been completed. The grass will be cut very soon, the Contractors are extremely busy but aware the grass is long and requires attention, they have been out to inspect the site.
TORFIELD PLAYPARK: Remains closed under Government instructions 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.
PETERS FIELD UPDATE: The Contractors will be out very soon, as above, they are extremely busy but aware the grass is long and requires attention, they have been out to inspect the site.
Date: Thursday 9th April 2020
Torfield - URGENT HEALTH & SAFETY WORKS NOTIFICATION. The permanent fencing to protect the public from falling down the cliff face will commence on Wednesday 15th April 2020 for approximately 7 days. The Contractors will be on site between the hours of 8.30am to 5pm (again approximate). Residents in the immediate vicinity will be receiving written notification over the next few days via Royal Mail.
Notices will be placed at all three entrances to Torfield to inform all users.
Please ensure children and dogs are kept within sight whilst using the field as there will be vehicular and machinery movement during this time. There will be some unavoidable 'drilling noise' as the railings need to be cemented in. There will also probably be some residual damage to the grass area which will be made as good as possible after, however, there will be the need for some 'healing time'.
The work will commence behind the current safety fences which will be removed when the installation has been completed.
Apologies for any inconvenience, however, we are sure you are absolutely aware of the need for this work to be carried out as a matter of urgency.

Broomhill Meadow - entrance restriction is now in place. However, we confirm that notices put on cars are not the actions of the Parish Council and although we have Police Reference numbers we have not reported any cars for parking on the verges at this time. However, we repeat, it is unlawful to park on verges and offenders could be prosecuted. It is also unlawful during this crisis to drive to walk your pets or exercise - police officers have the powers to move you on and give you words of advice. PLEASE STAY WITHIN YOUR OWN ENVIRONMENT to protect not only yourselves and others but also our NHS.
GRAFFITI - Parish Council Property has been damaged by Graffiti - even well meaning graffiti is criminal damage. We are unable to remove the graffiti at this time, however, if more appears we will have no alternative but to report such behaviour to the police, reluctantly ! Public Funds will have to be used to clean this up once this crisis is over, so it is in everyone's interest to adhere to the current regulations and adhere to the law.
Date: Thursday 2 April 2020
1. BROOMHILL MEADOW: Broomhill Meadow remains open to allow residents their daily exercise and dog walking. However, the entrance will be blocked off to cars over the next couple of days - this is to prevent those travelling by car to walk their dogs, with is now illegal under the current Coronavirus rules. The Police have also been informed and will be monitoring the area to ensure no parking on the verges occurs. This follows numerous complaints from residents that the Meadow has been taken over by those travelling to walk their dogs. If you have further concerns, please contact the Parish Clerk in the first instance.
2. IPPLEPEN ROAD: Road Closure lifted and the dangerous cladding repaired. Thank you for your patience and to the residents who informed the Parish Council.

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.
