What can I do?…
The app is regularly upgraded and extended, now including;
This section, like the newsroom section on Trinitymatters.co.uk, allows direct access to all the latest Council news across East Devon.
Will take you directly to the Twitter postings from our groups across the council.
Immediately allows us to report problems from fifteen different areas.
These range from Animal Fouling, through Damaged or Full Dog or Litter Bins, Dead Animals, Fly tipping, Graffiti, and Litter, to Missed Clinical, Recycling or Refuse collections and Abandoned Vehicles.
A problem in any of these areas can be reported through simple, easy to navigate forms.
This section included not just my contact details, as our East Devon District Ward Member, but also those of my colleagues across the District. This may be useful if your query relates to a matter outside Trinity Ward.
Click on ‘Waste Collection’ to set up notifications. Get a free email, at 4.00pm on the day before your Refuse Bins, Recycling Box and Sack or Food Caddies will be emptied.
This section is particularly useful as, by clicking the ‘Waste Container Information’ link, we can also find out which container our waste and recycling should be put in for collection.
Find my nearest
This section includes links to our nearest Leisure and Culture, Waste & Recycling, Visiting and Community and Living, all sorted by their distance from our own home postcode.
‘Leisure & Culture’ includes information on our superb local Nature Reserves, Libraries, Museums & Galleries, Leisure Facilities, Parks and Gardens.

Gives full details on places to eat out locally. We can search by list, map or ‘Nearby’. Each listing includes the premise Food Hygiene Rating (0 to 5 stars), based on the most recent inspection by council Environmental Health Officers.
Here you can view all current planning applications, as they are validated. Access all application documents to follow the progress of any individual planning application through the planning process. Applications are sorted by distance from your property, with those closest presented first.
If you need to contact the council, this section includes a map to the location of Council Offices at The Knowle, Main Switchboard, Customer Services and the 24hr emergency contact number.
From modest beginnings, the council ‘app’ is rapidly gaining in popularity, as the services portfolio offered online is extended. The convenience of being able to get to information or services required quickly, at any time of day or night, from any Apple or Android Smartphone or Tablet, is increasingly valued by residents as a companion to more tradition personal visits, phone or letters, which will continue to be offered to those who need them.
