Welcome to our home page

 


 Please take a look at our website for information regarding our Council and the town of Kingsteignton.

We hope that in time 2021 will be the year that we will be able to return to a more normal life, although we still have a long way to go to achieve this. We must all work together to make this happen.  Please follow the latest Government restrictions  

 

Government Roadmap out of lockdown continues to unfold - latest update from Monday 17th May 2021  

Remember.. Hands, Face, Space.... Fresh Air - even when indoors!

From Monday 17th May Government restrictions have eased even more, allowing us to continue life in a more normal way, however, we must still follow the rules to ensure safety for each other to enable the roadmap to continue towards moving out of lockdown hopefully by the Summer of 2021.  All hospitality may re-open, this includes cafes, coffee shops, pubs, restaurants, hotels, B & B's, cinemas, theatres, sports venues, play areas, museums etc.  Please be patient if some businesses have chosen not to re-open yet, it is there choice!  

Whilst we can meet in a group of up to 6 people from different households or (2 households) indoors now, it is still advisable to meet outdoors where possible.  Hugs are allowed but please remain cautious as the Coronavirus is still around and many people don't have symptoms so are unaware that they have it.  Please sign up for the F.O.C. Rapid Flow Tests for you to do at home twice a week, please visit the Government website to obtain them if you haven't already done so. The new Indian variant of Coronavirus is spreading rapidly so please, please be sensible and take care.  

 COVID-19 Vaccinations - please accept the vaccination, the more people who do, the safer we will all be! 

Restrictions are still in place, so please check the Government website as follows, to see what you can and cannot do:-

Kingsteignton - known as a Village within a Town

Just a few years ago Kingsteignton was the largest village in England.  However, as the population increased we achieved the status of becoming a 'Town', so from 1st January 2009, we changed from a Parish Council to a Town Council. Our first Mayor, Councillor Mike Walters was a stalwart for the Town, District and County Councils and served many years. Many locals who have lived here all of their lives, still refer to it as a Village!

Our population has since continued to grow and is currently at approximately 12,500 residents with over 5,000 homes.  We are a vibrant Town, with retail parks, a cafe, a coffee shop, pubs, restaurants, hotels, sports facilities, 3 high achieving primary schools and Teign School a high achieving secondary school, industrial estates and over 80 x businesses' in total.  Situated at the head of the River Teign Estuary our East Ward adjoins the Hackney Marshes Nature Reserve and to the West fringing on the banks of the River Teign adjoining Teigngrace and the Hamlet of Preston.

A resident or a visitor to our Town, we hope that you enjoy your time here!
