CHUDLEIGH KNIGHTON POST OFFICE
The Parish Council has been made aware that not all residents in the Parish are aware that the Post Office operates from Chudleigh Knighton Village Hall on Wednesdays from 9am – 1pm and on Fridays from 1pm – 5pm.  Unfortunately there is not enough customer activity to warrant any additional hours.  Please support the Chudleigh Knighton facility to ensure the current level of service continues to be provided.

PLANS TO REOPEN HEATHFIELD LANDFILL SITE
Viridor closed the Heathfield Landfill site in January 2016. However, the demand for residual waste (that which cannot be recycled) is greater than the current capacity and Viridor, therefore, intends to submit a planning application to allow for landfilling of waste at the Heathfield site for an additional 5 years.
