Residents views requested on settlement boundaries and green spaces
For the past two years, Perranuthnoe Parish Council have been engaging with local residents on the proposals for the Neighbourhood Plan. At a series of open meetings, events and questionnaires the views of residents have been gathered as to what they believe is special in the parish, and what they would like to see protected and how development should take place within the Parish. Hundreds of comments have been received and these have been taken into account in the way the plan is going forward. As a result, the Parish Council has worked with planners from Cornwall Council to draft proposals for settlement boundaries and green spaces within the Parish.
Draft plans for the main settlements within the parish are available to view as PDFs:

If you wish to make any comments positive/negative or generally on the proposals in the plan please do so by email to email@example.com stating your name/address and contact details by 31st March 2018. The Parish Council will review all comments made.
There is other work in progress on the Neighbourhood Plan and related matters. For example, a draft landscape character assessment for the parish will be in preparation over the next three months and the Parish Council are working with Housing Associations to progress genuinely affordable housing in the area.
Perranuthnoe Parish Community Award winners announced
Earlier this year Perranuthnoe Parish Council agreed to create an annual award to recognise individuals who have distinguished themselves through work in the community.Nominations were requested from across the parish which includes the villages of Perranuthnoe,Goldsithney,Rosudgeon and nearby hamlets and a number of nominations received were considered by a sub committee of the Parish Council. The Community award was made to Mike and Jean Berris from Goldsithney who have a tremendous track record of working in the community.They were instrumental in the reestablishment of the Goldsithney Charter Fair, which has now become a very successful annual event and have played key roles in supporting St Pirans Hall, the local village hall and the Conker club a local group that raises money for local community activities.
Mike and Jean were very appropriately presented with their award at this years Charter Fair by Cllr Andy Moore Chairman of Perranuthnoe Parish Council. Cllr Moore said ‘Mike and Jean are worthy first winners of this award, they have given great service to the local community and have really made a difference.We are really pleased to have so many nominations in our first year and is very encouraging to see the strength of community support and activity across the parish.
