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 South Hams Society, a registered charity, enjoys strong membership and is financially stable. Set up almost sixty years ago, it aims to stimulate interest in, and care for, the beauty, history and character of the South Hams and, in particular, the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It works to encourage high standards of planning and architecture which are in keeping with the landscape and local building traditions, meet housing and employment needs and promote environmental sustainability. It actively lobbies the Local Planning Authority (SHDC) and others with influence on planning matters and offers impartial advice to others, including individual campaigns and residents groups. The Society also arranges a popular events programme.
They are seeking a dynamic new Chair and Communications Officer to steer them through these challenging times. You can find more details and how to apply here.
