Efford has a population of approximately 7,000. It is mainly residential with a large mixture of private and rented accommodation.

The area accommodates one primary school, which in turn are fed into the main community college, situated just outside the Efford boundary in Lipson.

The population is varied and it continues to expand, with a number of new developments planned as part of the regeneration in the area.

Many families have resided in the area for a number of generations and are well established in the community. There are some new younger families moving into the area, with the older communities being more focused in the established areas of the neighbourhood.

Much of the activity – whether commercial, social or policing – is focused in the area of Torridge Way due to the small concentration of shops.

Efford is a safe place to live with the likelihood of being a victim of crime being well below the national average. In addition, the incidents of serious crime are very low indeed.
