Homes for Ukraine

Your Interest

If you want to offer a home to people fleeing Ukraine, you can become a ‘sponsor’ as part of the Homes for Ukraine scheme.

You can register your interest or find out further information from the uk government website using the links directly below:

If you already know a Ukrainian national (or immediate family member) who you want to sponsor, you can help them apply for a visa using the web site above.

If they do not have a sponsor, they will be matched with people or organisations who have recorded their interest through this service

Anyone in the UK with a spare room or home can use this service, as long as:

  • You can offer accommodation for at least 6 months.
  • If you are not a British citizen, you have leave to remain in the UK for at least 6 months.

Should any resident of Kenn Parish be able to help at this desperate time, Kenn Parish Council would like to help both hosts and guests in any way possible.

Please Email the if you have registered with homes for Ukraine, so we can assist and support



1.1.1 Nearly all emergencies affecting the Parish will be dealt with routinely by joint response of the police, emergency services, major utilities and Teignbridge District Council Emergency Management Team. However, there may be rare occasions when circumstances delay the arrival of assistance. If this does happen, the Parish will need to help itself.


The purpose of this plan is to provide an Emergency Management Team (EMT) that can coordinate self-help response during any emergency affecting the Parish, when the normal responses are delayed because of the scope and nature of another emergency.

The Emergency Management Team (EMT) contact details are:

7.5 ton Weight restriction call for evidence




                              As all residents of Kenn and Kennford will be aware there has been a 7.5ton weight limit for heavy goods vehicles

                                                         passing through the Main Road of Kennford (except for access) for 2 years.                                                                                                        

                                        There are many instances of very large Lorries ignoring the signage and driving through Kennford.

                                             The Parish Council, Devon and Cornwall Police, and the Management of Costal recycling

                                                                                     have joined forces to tackle the problem.                                                                                                                             

                                                   We need your help to gather up to date evidence of this disregard for the regulation

                                                                 that is putting all other road users and pedestrians in danger.                                                                            

                                      To help identify the vehicle operators, can I ask anyone witnessing a large vehicle driving through the village,                                                   

                                                     PLEASE take a photo, front, or rear of the vehicle and email it to the address above.                                                                         You do not need to do anything else; a photo will give all the information we need to challenge the culprits.                                                              

                                                                                    Together we will make the village safer for all.                                    

                                                                                                     Thank you
