Uplyme Parish Council co-opts new member

Bill Trundley

AFTER interviewing four excellent candidates for the vacancy, the parish council has appointed its newest member, Bill Trundley, who brings a wealth of skills and experience to the team.

Bill fulfilled the criteria for the role of a councillor and has a great passion for Uplyme and its strong community. He is determined to preserve the green spaces and beauty of the village. Bill is looking forward to working as a councillor.

Fly Tipping

Parishioners have reported that there has been an increase in fly tipping around the parish, particularly at the railway bridge on Gore Lane which has become a dumping ground for garden debris, litter, cans and bottles.

If you observe a fly tipping incident, Please report to EDDC Street Scene by calling 01395 517528 or email streetscene@eastdevon.gov.uk

Please note:

  • Where the incident took place;
  • Date, day and time you noticed the fly tipping;
  • A description of what was tipped and the quantity.


The parish council would like residents to be considerate and requests that they clear their own areas of litter and rubbish.


Our county councillor (Cllr Ian Hall) has requested that any crime incidents are reported to police line 101 or by email and copied to him on ian.hall@devon.gov.uk

Annual Governance Audit

The parish council has completed and approved its Annual Governance and Accountability Return for 2018/19.

Uplyme Parish Council will publish the documents to the public before July 1.

The parish council operates under The local government transparency code and the public may inspect the accounts and documents at any time, with due notice to the clerk.


Councillor Andy Turner has discovered that some residents are unaware what the parish council/lors do and would like suggestions as to how we can better reach out to the people in Uplyme.

Please contact Andy on 07779 03001.
