4b Other Councillors’ reports

Cllr Griffiths reported that (a) new seals had been fitted to all the Noticeboards. The backing material would soon be removed, and magnets had been procured to post items on the boards and (b) he had yet to hear from Culdrose regarding assistance with the transportation of new benches to their inaccessible site.

Cllr Scobie (a) enquired as to the outcome of the planning application for The Cabin, to which Cllr Moore replied that no decision had been reached, so far as he was aware and (b) mentioned that there was a “green caravan/mobile home periodically sited at Trenow, close to the shed with a solar panel. A watch needs to be kept on this, lest it comes to be sited there permanently.

Cllr Strawson reported on the conversation she had had with regard to the unsightly fencing at the entrance to a caravan site. She was advised that there was nothing to be done, as the approved plan showed the fencing in question.

Cllr Groves (a) reported that the Double Yellow Lines in Perranuthnoe seemed to be working and (b) mentioned the cutting of Bee Orchids to the west of the A394 lay-by

Cllr Moore updated the Council on the Community Governance Review. The Council agreed that Cllr Moore should liaise with Cllr Nicholas on this.

4c Neighbourhood Plan.

Cllr Moore reported that he, and Cllr Strawson, had met with Ms Vandermeeren and Mr. James Evans. They had discussed his comments on the draft policies. Fine tuning was required with regard to phraseology. Ms Vandermeeren has a bit more work to do, after which Mr. Evans will provide the Council with a draft document. Thereafter, it will be necessary to see if a Strategic Environmental Assessment is needed. It is hoped that a version of the Plan will be ready for Cornwall Council review in August.

The question of including Cornish Hedges in the Plan was discussed. Cllr Griffiths referred back to the days of Penwith District Council, when protection was afforded to Cornish Hedges that were part of an Ancient Field System. Cllr Moore said that he would contact Mr. Evans to say that the Parish Council would like to add to the Plan measures to protect historically important Cornish hedges and that the Council is aware that Penwith District Council used to afford such protection.

It was proposed by Cllr Strawson and seconded by Cllr Groves that the Minutes of the Meeting held on 20th May 2019 be signed. This was unanimously approved.
