We’re Here to Talk About the Slapton Line

The Slapton Line Partnership (SLP) has organised three further community events to discuss the future of the A379.

To allow maximum input from local residents and visitors, the Partnership have decided to hold a further drop-in event in Strete, along with two exhibitions; one in Dartmouth and the other in Kingsbridge.

The events will share information about the series of damaging storms over the past few years and what steps have been taken to date.

The main goal is to understand and address the challenge for the future road strategy and what this means to the community. There are important positive steps that will be taken to make sure the future long term resilience of the area.

Come along to the community drop-in session, with members of the SLP, on:

  • Wednesday 28 August at Strete Village Hall between 5 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

Exhibitions will also be held at:

  • Kingsbridge library between Saturday 10 August to Saturday 17 August
  • Dartmouth library between Monday 2 September to Saturday 7 September

If you would like to speak to a member of the SLP, and you can’t attend the drop in at Strete Village Hall, Slapton Line Partnership members will be attending at the library on each of the Saturday mornings.

The exhibition explains what has been happening in the past few years, the current situation and what is likely to happen next. There is a questionnaire available at the exhibitions to find out what residents and visitors think.

Cllr Richard Foss, Ward Member for Allington and Strete, said: “We’d encourage everyone to come along to these extra events, spread the word in your community, and find out what we’ve achieved so far and what we can do in the future.”

Cllr Julian Brazil, Ward Member for Stokenham, said: “We know how important the A379 is to local people, which is why we want to hear more from as wide a range of residents as possible to listen to their concerns.”

Councillor Stuart Hughes, Devon County Council Cabinet Member for Highway Management, said: "It was good to start this discussion at the drop in sessions last month, and we’re keen for as many people as possible to share their thoughts on the future position at Slapton Line. These additional dates in August and September will provide further opportunities for more people to come along and do just that."
