We received a report during the evening or our October Parish Council meeting, as follows:
“There are lots of changes going on within our team at Honiton. Sgt Hutter would like me to make contact with all Parish Councils within rural Honiton. He would like to know what they would like from us regarding contact and reports and for our contact to be on a positive note not just a few crime figures. Once I have all the replies I will discuss with Sgt Hutter (neighbourhood Sgt) and we will work out what and how we can get a report out. This could be monthly or quarterly or every six months. I am also currently looking at the possibility of having a police volunteer joining me. This would be very helpful with parish reports and connectivity.”
Do the Councillors have any feedback on reports we would like?

8. Planning
To receive and endorse the Planning Decisions of the Council taken since last meeting under delegated authority:
The formal delegation of making and submitting comments on planning applications to the Councillors who attend the site meetings, has been granted to Cllr Tony Long in November 2019. This is due to their being insufficient time before subsequent meetings to bring back comments to the Council for a full formal vote.
Cllr Long advised that during this time, site meetings have been held with a skeleton of Parish Council members, where he felt necessary and consequently hasn’t been inviting all the Parish Councillors to all the applications, due the present circumstances.
