"Sidmouth Town Council has a positive commitment to the town and people of the Sid Valley, together with its commercial and tourism industry"
Beautiful gardens and leisurely walks, regency history and fine hotels, clean beaches and friendly shops.... it's all here in this lovely seaside town that nestles beneath majestic red cliffs and the green hills of the glorious Sid Valley.

Sidmouth Neighbourhood Plan
Sidmouth Town Council have chosen to create a Neighbourhood Plan which will enable local people to have a say on future development in Sidmouth and the Sid Valley (Sidmouth, Sidford, Sidbury and Salcombe Regis). The aim is to work as a whole community to develop a plan which reflects the aspirations of all of us for the future of Sidmouth.
A Public Meeting (which will help to explain what a Neighbourhood Plan is, why it's important, how it's put together, and how individuals or organisations can become involved in a small way or to a greater extent) will be held on Tuesday January 19 2016 at 7pm in St Teresa's Hall, Connaught Road, Sidmouth. Please click here to open a copy of the poster.
Sidmouth Town Council are also seeking to recruit a Steering Group and Chairperson - please click here for a Press Release with further information on these roles.
See also the Neighbourhood Plan tab above for a copy of the Meeting Agenda, Chairperson Job Description and full Report of the Neighbourhood Plan Task and Finish Forum (NP TAFF).
