The Tamerton Foliot Village Conservation Society was founded in 1975 at a public meeting called to discuss unsuitable development and preserve the character of the village. The Conservation Area was formally adopted by Plymouth City Council in 1977, meaning there are planning requirements to meet. The society now has approximately 500 members all of who are welcome to attend our AGM where there is always an interesting talk from an invited speaker.

The Conservation Society Committee meets regularly to discuss and question anything affecting the life of the village. Our aims include retaining the character and ecology of our historic village. We acknowledge that life moves on but are naturally concerned that progress should evolve in harmony with our existing environment.

See the Conservation Society page for information on the committee’s current business. If you have any topics you wish to raise or have discussed please contact us by email at

The village has several groups and they are detailed in the Organisations page with relevant contacts and links as appropriate.

Contacts for travel, health, education and how to report Fly Tipping are listed on the Public Services page.

Water Watch has a lot of information about the streams and Creek, and what to do if you want to report a Pollution incident.

See the Village News and Events page for matters affecting life in Tamerton Foliot and activities to enjoy. If you are an organiser of activities and events please let us have details of what you are doing through the form on the Contacts page so that we can inform a wider audience.
