The Roundswell, Sticklepath & Lake/Tawstock neighbourhood is constructed from the Roundswell, Lake/Tawstock wards as well as parts  of theTaw and Longbridge wards, which includes Sticklepath & Woodville.

And has a mixed population of about 12,000 people from all walks of life. It is mainly an urban area, but being on the edge of a large town this does incorporate a number of rural villages. The population is very varied and over the next few years we can expect to see a number of large developments taking place such as the development on the Leader, Flush & Shapland site.

This of course will bring an increase in the number of housing properties being built.

North Devon is, on the whole a safe place to live & work in, and the incidents of serious crime are very low indeed.

The main issues are usually one of criminal damage & anti social behaviour, these are usually committed by persons passing through the area.

There are also problems with a perceived "Fear of Crime" being interpreted as a significant threat, when in actual fact the figures are relatively low.
