Lifton Parish CouncilWelcome
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 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.

Parish Council - Community Coronavirus Support
Thank you to all the volunteers who provided much needed support with essential food shopping, collection of prescriptions or providing other support to the Lifton community during the pandemic over the last 12 to 18 months.
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
