Welcome to Staverton Parish comprising the villages of Staverton & Landscove in South Hams, South Devon.
In addition to providing regularly updated information on events, this website was conceived of as a way to connect the community more closely with their elected representatives, the Staverton Parish Council. The parish council is the lowest level of democracy, sitting below the district council.
A separate section of this site is used by the parish council to post information such as agendas, minutes etc. Use the menu on the left to navigate to parish council pages.
I run this site in my spare time. Several other people now have access to add events, but the more people contributing to the site, the better. So if you’re interested in getting involved, please email me using this contact form or give me a buzz on 762 740. You don’t need to be a technical whizz to add events or news posts.
