Welcome to the official website of Strete in Devon, England, which is managed by Strete Parish Council. Strete is about a fifteen minute drive from Dartmouth. It is to be found on the high coastal ground at the eastern end of Slapton Sands. It's a good place to stay if you like exploring the local beaches and is also convenient for Kingsbridge, Totnes and Salcombe. Strete is situated on the South West Coastal Footpath and, with a variety of accommodation in the village, it is an ideal location to take a break in your journey. Take time to relax and enjoy the beautiful AONB surroundings.
The Joint Local Plan examination hearings start at the end of this month.
Confirmed dates at Follaton for the hearings are 27th and 28th February.
Morning sessions are from 10am and afternoon sessions from 2pm.
The sessions are open for anyone to come along and watch.
Only those who made representations during the final consultation
of the plan have a right to participate.
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.
This is how it looks now. A huge improvement. Well done lads.
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that Strete Parish Council will, at its meeting in Strete Village Hall on Thursday 16th February consider co-opting a Councillor.
Anyone interested in becoming a Councillor should contact the Parish Clerk as soon as possible.
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): http://mg.swdevon.gov.uk/ieListDocuments.aspx?CId=149&MId=496&Ver=4
