SHDC Service Updates

Recycling centres closed
Devon County Council have closed all the household waste recycling centres in Devon until further notice. Residents are asked to safely store the waste they would have taken to the recycling centre at home until the centres reopen.
Bulky Waste Collection
The closure of the recycling centres will mean that the Council’s bulky waste collection service will also be suspended with immediate effect until the centres can reopen. Anyone who has pre-booked a collection will be notified of the cancellation and refunded in full. Other waste collection are still operating as normal.
Public Toilet Closures
By 30 March, all public toilets in South Hams and West Devon will be closed until further notice. Public toilets are ‘high touch’ areas and therefore closing them will help reduce the spread of infection.
Notices will be placed on all entrances to advise of the closure.
SHDC Play Park Closures
Further to the announcement from the Prime Minister yesterday evening, South Hams DC are commencing closure of our play parks.
The following action is being taken:

  • Play park closure signs are being produced today and tomorrow, with a view to being erected (subject to staff availability) between tomorrow and Friday at SHDC owned play parks.
  • Signs will be erected at fenced play areas on the gates/fencing advising of the closures. Gates will be cable tied/locked/chain and locked shut as appropriate.
  • At sites with unfenced play equipment, signs will be erected at entrances to the wider green spaces, or in the vicinity of the equipment.
  • Inspections of the play equipment will cease with immediate effect, however signs will carry a contact email address in the event that the public have cause for concern about the equipment.
  • For play parks owned by Town and Parish Council you are advised to take a similar course of action.

Consistent with Government advice, South Hams DC are not closing wider green spaces/parks at this time, but we will of course monitor national advice carefully, act accordingly and keep you informed as to any change to our local approach.
Environmental Protection - Stray Dogs
There will be no collections of stray dogs for the foreseeable future. We are encouraging residents to advertise locally on social media if they find a stray or to take them straight to Animals in Distress in Ipplepen, or Margaret Green Animal Rescue Centre in West Devon, known as Wingletang.
As of 1 April we will be not be using Foredown but will carry on using Animals in Distress.
