Chudleigh & District Amenity Society

Since 1972, the Chudleigh & District Amenity Society (CADAS) has worked hard to maintain and improve the general environment of the town for all its residents.

This has been done in various ways.

Planning applications have been scrutinised and our comments reported to Teignbridge District Council.

The CADAS Committee has, with assistance from other groups, secured the protection, conservation and improvement of features of historic and public interest.

Recently, the dipping places of the ancient town water supply have been marked, and Chudleigh’s War Memorial has been listed with English Heritage.

Our most recent project — the commissioning and provision of a mosaic depicting the history of Chudleigh — was unveiled by Lord Clifford in May 2015.

We hope to continue this work by installing smaller mosaics around Chudleigh, created by local artists under the guidance of Michelle Greenwood-Brown who designed the original mosaic.

There are gaps in the line of trees along Lawn Drive. A scheme of planting is being drawn up which we will submit to Devon County Council. Funding is being sought to purchase the trees, which we will plant. Help is always welcomed for this and other projects.

If you are interested in helping us to improve and maintain the ambience of Chudleigh, please do join us by becoming a CADAS member.
