SHDC and Public Toilets

The future running of the public toilets in South Hams is being considered as part of the Council’s budget process to reduce costs.
The cost of providing all of the public toilets in the South Hams is £670,000 a year. This is not one of the statutory services which the Council has to provide.
SHDC are considering how they can continue to provide local services without cutting statutory front line services.
This can be achieved through communities taking responsibility for the provision of local public toilets and/or charging for public toilet use. Closure could also be considered.
Public toilets are one of a number of service areas which will be discussed by the Council during the budget period which runs into the early part of 2018. Council papers outlining the budget process will be in the public arena from later this week and SHDC want to ensure that communities are aware of any discussions that affect their locality.
Here is a link to the report that will be considered by the Executive on 7 December (Item 8):

How to Avoid Fly Tipping

Dispose of Your Waste Properly

Please help South Hams District Council to get rid of fly tipping in our district.
This video [] shows the problems of fly tipping.
Dispose of waste properly using a registered waste carrier.

South West Coastal Path

Starting Tuesday 21/11/2017, contractors will be working on that first section of the Coastal Path at Strete, just to the east of the centre of the village, where it leaves the road to head towards Blackpool Sands and Stoke Fleming.
There’s a 70 metre section that is enclosed and separate to the field, and it gets quite muddy and slippery.
This section will be re-graded and stoned.
Walkers will be directed out of the field via the SWW concrete track and then along the reasonably wide roadside verge. This area will be cleared of overgrowth to ensure it is safe for walkers access this diversion route.
The works should last about three days.
