From time-to-time, issues crop up that have the potential to seriously and negatively affect the lives of villagers. In exceptional circumstances, where the TRA feels it can be genuinely effective, and has a clear mandate from the majority of villagers, it will lobby and campaign a consensus position, alongside villagers' individual efforts. Examples of recent/ongoing campaigns follow:

  • The Yacht Haven planning appeal TRA's involvement was instrumental in helping prevent erection of large structures that would have had a negative effect on the village
  • The Turnchapel Pong TRA, alongside individual residents, is liaising with South West Water to resolve a long-standing problem with smelly drains
