The Parish Council

The Parish

Ogwell is a small community situated midway between the South Devon coast and Dartmoor National Park, close to the market town of Newton Abbot. The parish consists of East and West Ogwell, with some 2,500 residents occupying just over 1,000 dwellings. The majority of the population is to be found in East Ogwell which includes 150 homes of the old village of East Ogwell and roughly 850 homes to the east of Canada Hill. Most of these homes are on the new estate which was constructed during the late 1980s to 2000. The remainder of the parish population live in rural areas.

The Parish Council

The Parish Council works to enhance aspects of the village and to promote close links within our community. It meets every second Monday at 7.00pm in the Memorial Hall. The public are encouraged to attend and there is always an item on the agenda called ‘Parishioners Views’ when members of the public are invited to speak on any subject which they feel that the council should be addressing. Minutes of previous meetings are available by clicking on the links below.

What’s involved in being a parish councillor?

You don’t need any kind of special experience or knowledge to be a parish councillor, we’re just a bunch of Ogwell residents (eight members in total) interested in helping to keep the parish a decent place to live, play and work.

We make decisions about a variety of things to support the community (like helping to fund the playpark, the summer fair, and bonfire night), and we try to assist local groups, such as providing the pre-school with extra money for new facilities. We look at planning applications and decide if they’re right for the neighbourhood, and we communicate with the local police, and the district and county councils on your behalf about anything from speed humps and parking to street lights, grass mowing and road maintenance.

From time to time vacancies for parish councillors arise and these are notified in the Parish Magazine and on this website. If you would like to be considered for such a position contact our Clerk, Rita, for more information. Remember that although the role is unpaid it doesn’t take much time. We meet for a couple of hours on the second Monday in each month. But you do need to attend the meetings regularly to keep up to date. You can do as much as you want, be as creative as you like – come up with new ideas, help with communications, have a hand in the parish website, help monitor our local footpaths, it’s up to you. The only essential bit of kit you’ll need is something to send and receive emails.
