for more information.
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.
Lifton Parish Council currently has one vacancy for a Parish Councillor. The co-option process is currently postponed until further notice.
