Clerks Report

All councillors had been sent a report from SWPSI prior to the meeting.

The Clerk had received the Local Maintenance Partnership 2022 – 23. and SWCP Cutting schedules. Clerk to make enquiries with Cllr Griffiths regarding a meeting with Robert Sanders re a price for cutting the Parish Footpaths and bridleways.

The Clerk asked for clarity on Parish Council meetings in March (location) and April (date)

It was agreed to hold the March Parish Council meeting in The Church Room at Perranuthnoe.

The council agreed not to meet on the third Monday in April as this was Easter Monday but the monthly parish Council meeting would be held the following week on Monday 28th April.





Chairmans Report

The Chairman was very pleased to announce that following the West Penwith Community Network Panel on the Thursday 20 January 2022. The Traffic management Plan for Goldsithney had been awarded extra funding this was proposed by our County Councillor and supported by the Leader of Cornwall Council.

A new Police Inspector had been appointed for our sector and that she would be going to meet them at the next Police Liaison Group meeting on the 7/3/22

James Hardy the Community Link Officer for West Penwith will be remaining in post after the recent Cornwall Council review of staff. This was a great relief as James works well with the Chairman and Clerk and supports PPC. However, his area has increased to encompass Hayle and St Ives as well as West Penwith.

The NDP was nearing completion and she was hoping to get a date from the NDP steering group as to when the external review had been completed.







02/22/11 County Cllrs Report

Cllr. Sherfield Wong stated that:

Once Cornwall Council had passed their proposed budget, she would be at County Hall tomorrow voting for the implementation of it. Dates would then follow-on for projects such as the Goldsithney Highways Project.

There would be notification within the next few weeks of the enforcement cases she was looking into. Developments hopefully would include the two derelict houses on the A394 which had been the cause of many complaints which were now dangerous and an eyesore.

02/22/12 Cllrs Reports:

Cllr. Linton Had been asked why the minutes were published a month in arrears.

It was a legal requirement of the Council that the minutes be approved at a full Council meeting and once they have been signed by the Chair person they are then released for publication /distribution. Perranuthnoe Parish Council meet once a month if they met twice a month the minutes would be released earlier.

Adoption of Kiosk in Perranuthnoe.  The Phone Box has now been adopted by the Parish Council. Cllr Linton asked if this could be reversed. The clerk explained that once the telephony had been removed you could not reinstate. The telephony has been removed from the box in Perranuthnoe and the council wants to encourage the community for expressions of interest/usage.

Marazion TC were at the same stage with their phone box adoption policy the clerk would ask MTC to share their public responses with PPC.

Cllr Sharp. Was concerned re the stiles on the coastal footpath especially the one into the overflow carpark the soil was wearing away. There was no one policing it he felt a kissing gate strategically placed would alleviate the problem. Cllr Sherfield Wong would see if CC could help

Cllr Collins. Ongoing, investigating costs and materials for a new stone bus shelter at Perranuthnoe

Cllr. Griffiths had dealt with a problem with a shared drive stating that this was a civil matter and not a Parish one.

Cllr. Pascoe felt that walkers were at risk when approaching Colenso Cross motorists cut the corner and it is a large junction. Perhaps the solution might be a physical object in the middle of the road.



Project/issues updates:

Queens Platinum Jubilee – Two event groups had formed one in each ward and had made themselves known to the Clerk

Goldsithney were planning events on Friday 3rd June. A road closure in Fore Street would be in place there would a street party followed by live music and games.

Perranuthnoe were planning a Barn Dance on Friday 3rd June and a Street Party on Sunday 5th June.

It was proposed, seconded and unanimously agreed to fund each ward with £1,000 each to allow these events to go ahead. The Parish Council would not be insuring these events as we would not be overseeing them and they would not be held in our name.

Bus Shelter Repair St Pirans Hall South Road –

It was proposed, seconded and unanimously agreed to proceed with an insurance claim to repair the damaged bus shelter at St Pirans Hall.  Glasdon UK Ltd. had submitted a cost to repair the damaged bus shelter Clerk to escalate.

CCTV – St Pirans Hall –

Cllrs Griffiths, Pascoe & Collins are attending another meeting with the suppliers/ companies which has been arranged for February 25th Previous quotes had been asked to be updated– Project Ongoing.

Cllr Sharp raised the issue of Cornwall Housing Policy and that he was dismayed by the lack of affordable housing. Cllr Sherfield Wong stated that she was indeed sympathetic as she herself was unable to purchase a property at the moment. Cllr Wong felt the one way forward lay with getting involved with Land Trusts to improve the affordable housing stock.

Cllr. Sherfield – Wong left the meeting at 21.12



Correspondence, telephone calls etc.

Correspondence had been received from a parishioner detailing parking in Church Road Perranuthnoe and access to their property was being hindered because of parking in the road.
