West Devon Borough Council - Financial and Food Support for People in Need

For those who are facing financial hardship as a direct result of the Covid 19 pandemic, West Devon Borough Council has welfare funding that may be able to support them to meet short-term needs. We can also help with financial advice to manage any debts and budget effectively to meet household needs.

Many West Devon businesses and members of the Community are already supporting local families both through the pandemic and during school holidays. As your local councillor, I can help direct you towards organisations that can help, such as foodbanks.

Should any household find that they are struggling financially, I would strongly urge them to contact West Devon Borough Council, or myself, for advice. We can help support short-term needs. Find out more here: https://westdevon.gov.uk/covid19residents#Emergency%20Financial%20Assistance

Running Lifton Parish Council under COVID-19 Restrictions

In order to continue as far as possible with the continuation of business under Covid-19 restrictions, an emergency delegation has been made in line with advice from NALC and DALC.

All decisions that have been taken by the Clerk as Proper Officer of the council under the Emergency Scheme of Delegation will be kept on a register. The register is made in accordance with the 2014 Openness of Local Government Bodies Regulations. This register will be reviewed at the relevant monthly meeting following any new decision(s) taken by the Clerk as Proper Officer.

Prior to this meeting, if you have any further questions on the emergency delegation and the continuing work of the Lifton Parish Council, please contact Sue Willis, Parish Clerk at parishclerk@liftonpc.org.uk


Welcome 
Lifton is an attractive village set in a corner of West Devon with a wealth of history and interest. It is in the valley of the river Lyd, about a mile from where it meets with the river Tamar and four miles East of Launceston. 

Lifton falls within the Borough of West Devon and with a population of 1180, plays an important role as a local centre for jobs and services. 

Parish Councils 
Parish Councils are an essential part of the fabric of local democracy in this country and play a key role in our villages. They operate as non-political bodies serving the community by dealing with local issues and working closely with the borough councils to keep them in touch with the needs of the people from smaller communities.
