Deep Lane pedestrian/cycle bridge consultation

Dear all,


Devon County Council is considering how to improve the cycle and pedestrian movements over the A38 at Deep Lane Junction, and is undertaking an online public consultation to get views on three potential options identified to deliver a new route.


The three options being consulted on include a route to the west of Deep Lane Junction, a route alongside the existing bridge at Deep Lane Junction, and a route to the east of Deep Lane Junction.


The public consultation will run between 13th December 2021 and 23rd January 2022, seeking the views of local stakeholders, businesses and residents. Further details of the options, including a plan, and an online response form can be found at, and the consultation leaflet that will be sent to surrounding landowners has also been attached for reference.

Sherford Easter Holiday Club

A fun flurry of forest school sessions, games, crafts and outdoor fun, Sherford's Easter Holiday Club was a huge success!

Taking place at the Country Park - a stunning slice of green space at the town's heart - the activities were kindly organised and run by Dartmoor Community Kitchen Hub and Sherford Forest School. Part of a project to support positive mental and physical health, and help tackle holiday hunger, funded by Devon County Council.

A great initiative, here's to plenty more forest fun for Sherford families in the future.
