It is widely recognized that Hemyock has had significant housing development over recent years. 

Members of Hemyock Parish Council held an additional meeting in order to discuss the Culm Development Plan (see here).  This was because of their real interest and deep concern about areas of the village which were being considered by Mid Devon District Council for future affordable housing and employment development.  The plan identifies three areas within Hemyock where affordable housing and/or employment construction could take place.

General News Oh dear, what a dismal summer we are having but whilst some events have been badly affected by rain we have been quite fortunate here. One lucky couple who really had a gloriously sunny day for their wedding were Sarah Bourne and Trevor Jackson. Their Ugandan theme day was a delight and we wish them and their family all happiness as they move to Dorset where Trevor will begin training for church ministry. We also say a fond farewell to the Morgan family returning to Australia where Dan will be taking up a teaching position at the NSW State Conservatorium of Music in Sydney and to Gill and Ian Richardson who with their 3 children have bought a shop near Lot, France.
