Item 1  Apologies for absence: Cllrs Strawson, Taylor, Leo & Nicholas

Item 2 Public Speaking Period:

Mrs. Wise raised concerns about a field at Chiverton Gate in which 2 caravans and a wooden structure had been situated. Cllr Moore reported that he was aware of this and had logged a complaint on-line with Planning Enforcement. He advised Mrs. Wise to do the same.

Mrs. Wise also asked about the situation regarding the field in Grove Lane with caravans. Cllr Moore updated her on the situation, to the effect that the matter was now with the Magistrates Court.

Mrs. Hobbs raised concerns about planning application PA18/11764 and about planning appeal APP/D0840/W/18/3215515.

Item 3 Plans and Planning Matters

a. PA18/10451. Application to replace domestic caravan with private house. Land at Agan Trygva, Agan-Trygva, Prussia Cove Road, Rosudgeon. It was proposed by Cllr Moore that the application be opposed because it is outside the settlement boundaries and not infill or rounding off. It would be detrimental to the AONB, too visibly intrusive, too large, and out of keeping with its surroundings and could act as a precedent for ribbon development along Prussia Cove Road. This was seconded by Cllr Jago and carried unanimously.

b. PA18/11538. Proposed single storey extension and associated works. Chafran, Johns Corner, Rosudgeon. Mr. Sharp. It was proposed by Cllr Moore, seconded by Cllr Griffiths and carried unanimously that the Parish Council raises no objection to the principle of development but requests that the finish and materials are in keeping with the surroundings.

c. PA18/11897. Felling of three trees. The Plantation, Grove Lane, Perran Downs, Goldsithney. Mr. Hodges. It was proposed by Cllr Moore, seconded by Cllr Scobie and carried unanimously that the application be opposed on the basis of the absence of information to justify the works

d. PA18/11764. Certificate of Lawfulness in respect of the existing use of a building that has been used as a unit of residential accommodation for a period in excess of 4 years. Chiverton Lane Orchard, Perran Downs Lane, Rosudgeon. Ms Susan Anne Norona. It was proposed by Cllr Moore that the Parish Council reiterates its view from November 2018 namely ‘that it is for Cornwall Council to determine the evidence presented but the Parish Council requests that Cornwall Council strongly resists this application which could encourage inappropriate development’. This was seconded by Cllr Jago and carried unanimously

It was noted that the following planning permissions had been granted granted:

a. PA18/05112. Mr. I. Hart. Menavaur, Nanturras Way, Goldsithney. Change of use of existing annexe to be used as holiday accommodation.

a. APP/D0840/W/18/3215401. Appeal by Kensa Trevorrow against refusal of planning permission (PA18/01650) for outline planning application with all matters reserved: erection of residential dwelling and associated works for land adjacent to Landvue, Rosudgeon.

Item 4 Councillors Reports:

4a Councillor Nicholas’ Report. Cllr Moore read out the report that Cllr Nicholas had sent him. On the question of the Governance Reviews, it was agreed that Cllr Moore, Nicholas and Strawson would formulate proposals to put to the full Council, rather than have a separate meeting of the full Council to discuss this.

4b Other Councillors’ reports

Cllr Scobie expressed his grave frustration at the lack of apparent progress over the caravans at Trenow and enquired as to whether it was really not possible to have Cornwall Council do something. The clerk was instructed to write to Planning Enforcement about this.

Cllr Griffiths raised the cost of seat maintenance and felt that reserves should be earmarked for their replacement with plastic ones. He said he would enquire of the Navy to see if they could assist with the logistics of replacing the two seats at Maen Dhu point. Seat replacement was one of the items covered by Earmarked Reserves, to be discussed later in the Meeting.

Cllr Groves raised:

1. The question of the bus shelter in Perranuthnoe. Cllr Moore said that this, too, was on the list of Earmarked Reserve projects and that it required a Councillor to take a lead.

2. The Fire Service update, in particular (a) the Fire Service had been measuring the width of roads in Perranuthnoe (b) she had been advised that this was for the benefit of new members of the Fire Team to show them the problem areas (c) there are concerns about the access at the Mews and (d) the possibility of having a coffee morning at the Victoria in March, which the Fire Service would attend. She will pursue this.

3. The poor state of the notice board in Perranuthnoe. The clerk said that he had cleaned the inside and outside of the Perspex of all 5 boards. She and Cllr Scobie will inspect all 5 boards and report back to the Council. For this purpose, the clerk gave Cllr Scobie the key to the boards.

Neighbourhood Plan

The draft brief for James Evans having been previously circulated, it was agreed that Cllrs Moore and Strawson would review the comments received and then send the brief to Mr. Evans, hopefully by the end of the month. The amended Settlement Boundary plans had also been finalised and will now go back on the website.
