Wembury Parish Emergency Plan- COVID 19

This community incentive is being supported by Wembury Parish Council. If you are medically vulnerable to the covid-19 virus and are having to self isolate then you are able to register for support either now, or in preparation for the future. The community is stepping in and volunteering to help people get supplies and prescriptions, should you be unable to do so via family, friends, neighbours or from deliveries.

Your data will only be used for the purposes of supporting you during this national emergency. Once there is no more need for the group the data will be destroyed. Should you wish to have your data removed prior to this time please let us know and it will be removed.

 CONSULTATION-TEMPORARY TRAFFIC ORDER TRAINE ROAD

 Following the government’s direction that local authorities should be reallocating road space for active travel, Wembury Parish Council are considering how to improve things for our parish.

One idea is to apply for a temporary traffic order for Traine Road which would ban all motorised traffic, except for access. This would allow for a much quieter and safer exit and entry to the village for non motorised traffic than the main road. At the same time allowing residents and their visitors to still access their properties.

This order would be enforceable by the police and could be temporarily and simply removed, should there be an issue on the main road that would necessitate a diversion to be put in place.
There is a significant cost to advertising the application, so Wembury Parish Council would like to first establish if there is any support for the application to be put in.

It will be discussed at the June meeting on the 29th at 7.30pm- this will be a virtual meeting using Zoom and everyone is welcome to attend. The sign in details will be published nearer to the time. Please do attend and have your say on whether you would support this application or email clerk@wemburyparishcouncil.org. Postal comments to 11 Cross Park Rd, Wembury. PL9 0EU

YCE GRANT RECEIVED!

Wembury Parish Council are pleased to announce that the Yealm Community Energy Fund has granted us £2500 to go towards the planting of hundreds of tree and bush whips. This planting will not only enhance the park and encourage more walking but also contribute to increasing carbon uptake from the atmosphere. As an added bonus the wildlife will also greatly benefit from the increased habitat.

We would like to extend a very big thanks to Yealm Community Energy for their kind grant.

Speeding Vehicles in Traine Road, Wembury

There appears to be an increase in vehicles driving far too fast along Traine Road in Wembury. The road is narrow with many blind bends and fast moving vehicles are a danger to pedestrians, horses and the drivers themselves. Please avoid driving along Traine Road unless you have to. If you have to, then please drive slowly and be aware of other people and animals that may also be using the road. Please eliminate this dangerous practice.
