I was looking around the East Devon District Council website this morning and found a handy way to find really useful information in your area. Click on http://www.eastdevon.gov.uk/my_neighbourhood.htm and scroll down to where it ways My Neighbourhood in green. Enter your postcode – this takes you to another page where you choose your address then click “view property details”.
It then provides you with lots of useful info like your recycling and refuse collection days, your nearest sports centre, library, swimming pool and electoral details. I’ve found out my ward is the Yarty Ward (as suspected when I was writing about the East Devon Constituency in December). My parish is Membury CP and my councillor is the Conservative Paul Diviani who lives just up the road from us in Yarcombe. Paul has been an elected member since 1999.
