The main purpose of the Parish Link meetings is to provide an opportunity for both greater liaison and developing closer working relations between the local town and parish councils, West Devon Borough Council, Devon County Council and the Dartmoor National Park Authority.
Examples of how this purpose is being progressed include the discussions on the Town and Parish TAP Fund and the Parish Links being administered by local parish clerks.
