South Brent is a large village on the southern edge of Dartmoor.
The Parish is the second largest (after Cornwood) in South Hams at 3742 ha, and 6th largest (after Ivybridge, Totnes, Kingsbridge, Dartmouth and Bickleigh) with a population of 3043 in 2012.
The village was originally a woollen and market centre with 2 annual fairs and a station.
Now the village centre is within Dartmoor National Park, and it is a thriving community with shops, businesses, school, village hall and community centre.
The Parish Council consists of 12 elected councillors - 9 from the Village Ward, and 3 from Brent Moor Ward.
The present Council were elected/co-opted in May 2019, and will serve for 4 years until 2023.
A list of the Councillors may be found here.
Parish Council meetings will take place at the Village Hall for the remainder of 2021, and in 2022 will move to the Pavilion at the Recreation Ground for the foreseeable future.
All members of the public are invited to attend meetings, and will have the opportunity to speak at a public forum at the start of each meeting.

PLATINUM JUBILEE CELEBRATION
I have been given the honour of co-ordinating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations for South Brent, on behalf of your Parish Council.
2-5 June 2022 marks the recognition of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s 70 years of reign. Quite remarkable! It is also a salute to her devoted service to our country and her unerring, dedicated sense of duty.
This is the first time a British Monarch has celebrated a Platinum Jubilee, so it is worth gathering our thoughts as to how we can acknowledge this once in a lifetime event.
For the celebration to be successful we will need a body of willing helpers. They will have to be ready to take on responsibility for organising a small part of the various activities, such as:
Catering Media Coverage Children’s Activities Communications
Logistics Funding and Budgeting Refreshments Tables/Chairs
Tent/Marquee Hire Business Participation Marshalls/Security
If you are willing to help, please let me know as soon as possible so that I can organise a ‘get-together’.
I will be walking around the village with my RED BOOK so just stop me and let me know your idea and if you wish to be one of the helpers. Every idea will be given serious consideration, and your help, most appreciated.
Let’s show what we are capable of and make it a successful occasion; full of friendship, food and fun!

Thank you, in advance, for your help
Cllr Paul Astal-Stain
