Welcome to our website, and to the parish of Kenn, consisting of the villages of Kenn and Kennford, and hamlets of Clapham and Splatford. The parish is split by the major road junction of the A38 and A380, known as the Splatford Split, giving easy access to both the sea and Dartmoor. The forest park at Haldon and Exeter Racecourse are within our parish helping to bring visitors down to this beautiful part of Devon.

TRANSPORT FOR KEY WORKERS

Due to the reduction of bus services across the county, Devon County Council are trialling an on-demand subsidised taxi service for Devon residents for key workers accessing employment only.

This service is intended to replace those journeys which were previously made by bus - a subsidised flat fare will be charged.

Requests can only be made by email and should be sent to devonbus@devon.gov.uk

Please include the following information in your email:

NAME, ADDRESS, KEY WORKER STATUS, EMPLOYER / PAYROLL REF

JOURNEY REQUIREMENTS (pick up/drop off)

We will aim to respond to all requests as soon as possible during normal office hours – journeys should be booked 48 hours in advance of travel.

The Parish Council is working with Teignbridge District Council to explore options for using the land at St. Andrews Close for 2 or possibly 3 affordable homes/bungalows for local people. It is very early days and we are aware that there is a need for some smaller homes for people already living in the Parish needing to downsize.
As we progress the project we will keep the community informed about the plans. We are looking at the different options for what could reasonably be developed and how the community could be involved.
Teignbridge DC has received some money from government for community led housing and the Parish Council will be ‘bidding’ for some of that money to pay for the technical work needed such as a survey of the site and working up the plans.
