Welcome to Stokenham Parish Council Website

The Parish of Stokenham, bounded by the black line on the map, covers the whole of the southern half of Start Bay, from Slapton Sands to Start Point and on to Lannacombe Beach. It encompasses the villages of Torcross, Beesands, Hallsands, Kellaton, Kernborough, Dunstone, Beeson and Chillington, as well as Stokenham itself, covers an area of some 20.6 square kilometres, and has a population of approximately 2,000.

The seven larger settlements and many smaller hamlets and farms are connected by miles of narrow country lanes, byways, bridleways and footpaths. The main arterial route in and out of the parish is the A379, which runs north to Dartmouth and west to Kingsbridge. This route is serviced by the First Western National Bus Company, with connections available to Plymouth (change for Derriford Hospital), Salcombe, Dartmouth, Totnes (our nearest main line railway station) and Exeter. The parish also enjoys the service of The Coleridge Bus, a community bus providing weekly runs from outlying areas to Kingsbridge. There are airports at Plymouth and Exeter.


Joint Local Plan Consultation 15 March - 26 April – your chance to make your views known

A number of engagement events have been planned throughout the South Hams to allow residents to meet with planners and consult on the Joint Local Plan. Two meetings will be held at different times in each of the three main towns, with further events in the smaller towns and villages. At least one Strategic Planner will be available at each event, and forms will be provided showing how and where to make comments.

Everyone is encouraged if possible to view the documents online: since there are a large number of documents and supporting policies, the best way to view them and make comments is through the online portal at Plymouth and South West Devon Joint Local Plan, which is now live.

For anyone who can’t access the documents online or would rather view a hard copy, each Town and Parish Council will have one copy of the plan, as will every ward member. Copies will also be available to view at the following locations: Ivybridge Watermark Centre; Totnes Library; The Woolwell Centre; Kingsbridge Library; Salcombe Library; Dartmouth Library; Follaton House Reception.

Hallsands Centenary Commemoration

Hallsands villagers are scheduling a programme of events to commemorate the great storm of 26 January, 1916, which washed away much of the southern half of the village. Plans include a lamplit walk from Hallsands to Beesands, a service of commemoration and a crab supper: follow this link for the latest information.

Re-shaping community-based health services – a public consultation

A number of meetings are being held across the area over the coming weeks to give local people an opportunity to hear the reasons for the proposed changes to community-based health services and to comment and contribute ideas. Each meeting is two hours long and will have an independent chair. This webpage http://www.southdevonandtorbayccg.nhs.uk/community... gives more information. All are welcome (and encouraged!) to attend.
