Should the village precept be increased, do we need a block of flats in the centre of our village and will pedestrians lack protection?

‘Mind the Gap’ was a mini conference held in Hemyock recently to consider the provision of increased elderly care services in Hemyock and in particular housing.  Hosted by the Parish Council and including representatives from the Abbeyfield Society, WCHA the local housing association and Mid Devon District Council the group began by reflecting on the existing services available to local people provided by both public and voluntary sector.  These were not insignificant and the work of organisations such as the Healthy Living Centre, Blackdown GP Practice and Blackdown Support Group were highlighted and commended.

Letters from 13 key businesses were presented at a recent Parish Council meeting in Hemyock demanding action on the need for passing places on Pencross Hill to the North of the village.  As the village has grown, there has been a marked increase in the number and size of commercial vehicles on this route to the M5, Taunton and Wellington.  Councillors heard that when buses and HGVs meet, there is just no room for them to pass and no specific passing places for them to reverse into, on what is a very steep hill.

A large number of activities seem to be happening on the roads around Hemyock, all at once.   The PCs initiative to replace the walkway over the Culm is finally coming to fruition, and Devon County Highways seem to have finally got their act together, though there is a strong suspicion that all this work is due to the forthcoming Round Britain Cycle race in September.
