There are some things that we as a Council can help with and some things which Devon and Cornwall Police can help with.


Do you have a concern about a social gathering?

During July the rules around gatherings were relaxed. However, people should not:

  • socialise indoors in groups of more than two households (anyone in your support bubble counts as one household) – this includes when dining out or going to the pub
  • socialise outdoors in a group of more than six people from different households; gatherings larger than six should only take place if everyone is from exclusively from two households or support bubbles
  • interact socially with anyone outside the group you are attending a place with, even if you see other people you know, for example, in a restaurant, community centre or place of worship
  • hold or attend celebrations (such as parties) where it is difficult to maintain social distancing and avoid close social interaction – even if they are organised by businesses and venues that are taking steps to follow COVID-19 Secure guidelines
  • stay overnight away from your home with members of more than one other household (your support bubble counts as one household)

Gatherings of more than 30 people will be prohibited, apart from some limited circumstances to be set out in law.
