Teignbridge is a local government district in Devon, England. Its council is based in Newton Abbot. Other towns in the district include Ashburton, Dawlish and Teignmouth. It is named for the old Teignbridge hundred.
The district was formed on 1 April 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972, as a merger of the Ashburton, Buckfastleigh, Dawlish, Newton Abbot and Teignmouth urban districts along with Newton Abbot Rural District and part of St Thomas Rural District. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teignbridge)

Climate Change Emergency
Our councillors have committed to plans that will help the authority become carbon neutral by 2025 and we are working with others to reduce negative impacts on the environment across Devon.
On 18 April, our Full Council declared an environment and climate emergency. A letter asking for support and backing from central government was sent to the Prime Minister from the Leader of the Council on 1 July.
We have been playing a leading role in tackling climate change for some time, with lots of work completed and on-going in the Council Strategy’s ‘Zero Heroes’ project.
