Welcome to Seaton
Local Bus Services
Devon County Council has been allocated
additional funding towards supporting improvements to local bus services. Their
approach is to use the funding to strengthen or restore services which
demonstrate the strongest likelihood of being sustainable, either commercially,
or within ongoing support budgets and criteria. The best and most realistic prospect is therefore to mostly build on existing services rather than start entirely new ones where the risk is greater.
Devon County Council’s proposed changes to a Bus Service which serves Seaton is for Route 885 which serves Beer – Seaton – Colyton – Axminster and is operated by Axe Valley Mini Travel. This service currently runs Monday to Saturday every hour. The County Council propose maintenance of current frequency which would otherwise have been reduced due to expiry of Section 106 developer funding in October 2020. This proposal has been made in response to bus company assessment of passenger growth and potential for commercial viability. The link to the consultation material and an explanation of Devon County Council's approach is here: https://www.traveldevon.info/bus/dft-bus-funding-consultation-20-21/ If you would like to respond to the consultation, please send any comments by Tuesday 14th April 2020 to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note all scheduled meetings of the Town Council and its Committees are cancelled until further notice due to the public health crisis arising from the spread of Covid-19.

Seaton is the only gateway town to the Jurassic coast where rocks from all three geological periods can be viewed in their natural environment: fossil bearing Jurassic rocks to the east, the vibrant Triassic cliffs just before Seaton harbour and the striking white outcrop of Cretaceous chalk cliffs of Beer.
Seaton nestles between the majestic cliffs of Beer to the west, the mysterious Axmouth to Lyme Regis Undercliffs natural nature reserve to the east while, to the north, the River Axe and its estuary is home to a wealth of wildlife.
Seaton’s history can be traced back to Phoenicians when they used Axmouth as a major port. In Roman times it was the only port of consequence between the Exe and Portsmouth.
The town (then known as Fleote) was granted its first charter in 1005 & re-named Seaton in 1126.
In the event of an emergency or the need to contact Seaton Town Council out of hours, please refer to the Council Information page and click on the Councillors button, and contact any one of the Councillors. Please keep working through the list until you speak to someone who can help you.
