Copplestone Parish Council

Copplestone Parish Council update

It appears that the rain has departed and the cold weather is here, Good news!

Copplestone Parish Council recently met and they too have Good News. No troubles during Halloween and Fireworks night were noted. Normally issues are reported to the Parish Council but this year…nothing. Good work to all those who were ‘Trick or Treating’ responsibly and the general attitude of the Youth within the parish.  The same goes for Dog Fouling as  reports of this issue have been reducing. Dog fouling is unsightly and is taken seriously by Mid Devon District Council who can prosecute you for this.


The Parish Council has also noted the situation at The Cross Inn. It was seen fit to apply for the Pub to be registered as an Asset of Community Value with Mid Devon District Council. More information can be found on We hope to be able to provide an update in the New Year.
