A proposal for the creation of one new Council for South Hams and West Devon
West Devon and South Hams Councils are consulting on a proposal to form one new Council.
We are consulting on a proposal to form one new Council to cover the areas currently served by South Hams District and West Devon Borough Councils.
In July 2017 the majority of councillors at both authorities voted to conduct a One Council consultation on a proposal to bring the two political structures together and create One Council.
The proposal would save up to £0.5m a year, reduce the number of Councillors and require Council Tax for both areas to be brought to the same level.
