WESTWARD Ho! Residents' Association is calling on property owners to play their parts in giving the resort a facelift.
At an open meeting last week members of the 2,000-strong association raised concern about the condition of some of the village's properties and a petition is now being organised calling on the district council to take action.
Association chairman Barry Mason said: "We are committed to the regeneration of Westward Ho! but to reach our goal we need the help and support of all, including Torridge District Council and local property owners.
"A cause for concern was raised about certain properties in the area, which have been allowed to fall into serious decline. These neglected properties give an extremely bad image of our village and, in many cases, just need a coat of paint and a tidy up. We are, therefore, calling on TDC to take matters into their hands and use whatever means they can to force these property owners to take action.

"A petition is being arranged, which will be available to sign in our local post office.
In the meantime, I appeal to those landlords and property owners responsible to get their act together and give our village the image it deserves.
