South Hams District Council has approved the creation of four new seasonal posts in its Localities Team, to boost the service provided to residents in the spring and summer months. The summer influx of visitors leads to a greater need for the services carried out by Locality Officers, such as community engagement and environmental enforcement. The additional seasonal officers will support the team in providing a seven day service throughout the summer months, operating between Easter and the end of September. The new officers will be working throughout the South Hams, building on the success of last summer, where staff worked at weekends to help protect the local environment and help keep people safe during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. The additional officers, who will be completely mobile and spend each day patrolling the district, will be more visible than ever before and will be able to quickly respond to reports made online by residents, businesses and visitors. The Localities Team, made up of officers on-the-ground who carry out important inspection and monitoring functions, has been restructured for the first time since its creation in 2015. This change has been made to improve and provide a consistent, visible presence within the community.
