The Parish Council have applied to Teignbridge District Council (TDC) for an increase from 8 to 10 in their number of councillors.

This application is made following the approx 20% increase in parish population in 2014 with the completion of the Ogwell Brook development being now followed by the approx further 10% increase with the expanded parish boundary recently approved.

The Electoral Reform Office has agreed to the conducting of a review, hopefully to be completed in time for the May 2023 elections. TDC have published the Notice of Review this morning, 23rd November which you can view at: https://www.teignbridge.gov.uk/council-and-democracy/elections/community-governance-review-ogwell-parish-council/

The Terms of Reference will be published tomorrow and the review process will commence on Monday 28th November. The Terms of Reference will contain the complete timetable for the process.
