Do you know someone doing great things for West Devon? Perhaps they're doing their bit to support the natural environment. Whether that be through recycling, improving biodiversity, supporting greener travel or anything that helps to address climate change.

Nominate them now for a Mayoral Award!

There are four categories to choose from:

  • Under 18s
  • Over 18s / Organisation
  • The Mayor’s Green Award
  • Long Service Award

Help us shine a spotlight on the people, groups and organisations whose selfless acts support our wonderful community.

Nominate online by Thursday 29 February 2024.

Get up to £5,000 when you downsize



It doesn't take long before children grow up and fly the nest. Suddenly you find yourself in a house that is too big, with unused rooms and larger heating bills.

If you find that your family situation has changed where your larger property no longer suits you, then perhaps downsizing may be for you.

We want to help support our local families who are struggling in homes that are too small for their growing families. To do this we need to help make some of our larger social rented houses in the Borough available.

Can you help us, to help a family?

Our voluntary downsizing scheme even offers up to £5,000 when moving to a smaller home.
