Matters Arising from the Minutes of the Monthly Meeting held on the 10th October 2018:-

 

Page 2 Min.240/18 A30 Link Road:- Clerk reported paperwork received had been circulated to Councillors and it appears Cornwall Council are liaising with the parishioners and keeping the Parish Council informed each time.

 

Page 2 Min.241/18 Police attendance at Parish Council Meetings:- Email received from Inspector Ed Gard - Thank you for your reply with regards to the Annual Parish Meeting. At this present time a Police Representative will be made available to attend that meeting. This date will be entered on our Calendar for 2019 for that purpose.

 

Page 3 Min.212/18 Land at St. Michaels Way:- Clerk reported a response had been received from Trigonal Estates as follows This area was subject to a development licence that benefitted RS Development and as such was their responsibility to maintain.  

There has since been a dispute with RS Developments and earlier this year I met the owners of the neighbouring property and agreed to clear and tidy back the area.  At this time the Estate also tidied the adopted Council verges and adjacent areas. The land is owned by Trigonal and I do not have any record of receiving any correspondence relating to it.  Incidentally, earlier this year we cleared the Sports Field for the Parish Council even though it was the Parishes responsibility - this was done promptly, at substantial cost, after squatters vacated the site having left a terrible mess.  The Estate takes its role and responsibilities as a landowner very seriously. I would be happy to meet to discuss the future of this ground and agree a suitable maintenance regime moving forward. It was agreed to arrange a meeting and discuss this Action: Clerk and Councillor D. Inch to meet, preferably on a late afternoon on a Friday.

 

Page 3 Min.99/17 Post Box Removal:- Clerk reported the new post box had been installed on Friday the 2nd November opposite the junction of Springfield Way on Tregarrick Road. The apologised and hope this would be good news for local residents.

Old Lane Maintenance and Street Light at the end:- Clerk reported the area needed a tidy up once all leaves had fallen, she had also discussed with Councillor D. Inch for the cutting back of the some of the branches of the trees which may help with the light situation somewhat. Maintenance costs for the two planters at the end had been received to clear and fill with cement. It had also been noticed that the top end near Victoria Road is still very dark when walking early evening now and it felt rather uncomfortable and unsafe so the Clerk was in liaison with Cornwall Council and WPD to obtain prices and was waiting for information. It was resolved to obtain quote for trees and wait for other information (Proposed: Councillor; Seconded: Councillor) Action: Councillor D. Inch to obtain two quotations. In the meantime, Clerk to look back through accounts to check on payment received for funding towards the last light and if not shown to liaise with Lisa Grigg to establish whether we had been sent the funding and when, it was noted that Cornwall Councillor J.

I think it would be good if you could get in touch with them?  They were very keen and I am sure be interested in meeting up.  If you do not have their contact details maybe via the Roche news?  I am sure they would be willing to do more picks and we would be happy to join in if we are free.  Do you think a date could be set for us all to get together? I would be happy to meet to plan more dates and having the small store and equipment sounds great.

Any Urgent Matters the Chairman considers relevant for this meeting:- Councillor M. Edyvean raised the subject of having a Christmas Tree again this year. There is no electricity in the area where we had it last year so he has looked elsewhere. He suggested approaching the Pharmacy putting one inside the wall by the bus shelters, young farmers put a hole there years ago, get electricity from pharmacy and reimburse for electricity. Councillor Mrs. I. Northey suggested The Hollies, Councillor D. Inch reported there was one in their garden last year.

Councillor D. Inch would be happy to liaise with the Pharmacy about putting one up and Councillor M. Edyvean would speak with Chris Tryell about supplying a Christmas tree. It was suggested we donate a sum of 60.00 for him to put a light up on the entrance and in turn he allows us to put a Christmas tree up at the front Action: Councillors D. Inch and M. Edyvean.
