Neighbourhood Plan 

'On June 21st 2018 the residents of Ottery St Mary and West Hill went to the polls to vote for their very own Neighbourhood Plan.  The result was an absolute landslide in favour of it.  We now have a robust Neighbourhood Plan that will protect our town and villages until 2031.  It will give us a say right here at grass root level to what happens and what development will be allowed.   East Devon will have to listen to us and to take note of the plan.  Well done to all those that turned out to vote.  It is your plan after all.   

Thank you to all who contributed.  Thank you to the Neighbourhood Plan Working Group who have worked on this for well over three years' .

Jo Talbot.  Chair of the Neighbourhood Plan Working Group.

   Footpath Volunteers for Ottery St Mary  

Do you enjoy walking? Would you like a voluntary role in your community? Ottery St Mary Town Council is looking for local volunteers to walk rights of way in the Parish on an annual basis and assist with highlighting areas that could benefit from small changes.

Each year the Town Council receive a grant from Devon County Council that enables the maintenance of paths to be undertaken. The grant contributes towards the clearance of vegetation, improvement of muddy surfaces and repairs to stiles, steps and gates.

The position, although unpaid, offers a rewarding opportunity to really make a difference to the many popular routes round the town for the benefit of locals and visitors alike.

In the role of warden, a volunteer may simply walk and report path matters or get more involved with actual physical maintenance and clearance of paths. The scope of the role is as broad as you wish.

If you are interested in getting involved, please do contact Ottery St Mary Town Council on 01404 812252 or to

We look forward to hearing from you.
