School places on the agenda for St Agnes and Perranporth Community Network Panel meeting

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Thu, 18/04/2019 - 14:55

Residents of the north coast parishes of Crantock, Cubert, Perranzabuloe, St Agnes, St Allen and St Newlyn East, are invited to attend the April Meeting of the St Agnes and Perranporth Community Network Panel.

The Community Network Meeting will takes place on Thursday 25 April between 6.30pm and 8.30pm at Perranzabuloe Parish Rooms, Chyanhale, Ponsmere Valley, Perranporth, TR6 0DB.

The meeting will be hearing from officers from Cornwall Council’s education service to discuss issues around school places at both primary and secondary school level. There will also be the opportunity to hear from parents and consider what steps can be taken to address issues raised.

Cllr Ken Yeo, the St Agnes and Perranporth Community Network Panel Chairman said: “All local residents are invited to attend the meeting - it is your opportunity to meet your Cornwall Councillors and your Parish Council representatives. The meeting on Thursday is a good opportunity for you to find out what’s going on locally and how your representatives address matters that have been brought to their attention. As a Panel we encourage input from the residents who attend the meeting.”

The St Agnes and Perranporth Community Network Panel meets regularly to discuss matters that affect the local community and to agree priorities that can be delivered by Cornwall Council and other agencies including the police and health services.

For example at the last meeting the panel considered local highways schemes that could be supported by the £50,000 per annum for four years allocated to each Community Network Panel by Cornwall Council.  The panel considered schemes from the Parish Councils in their Network Area and discussed which of these are put forward. The St Agnes and Perranporth Community Network Panel has also been involved with the proposed dualling of the A30 from Chiverton Cross to Carland Cross.

More information about the Community Network Panels and dates for future meetings can be found on the Cornwall Council Community Networks webpage.

High street heroes wanted to spring clean Cornwall’s towns and villages

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Thu, 18/04/2019 - 11:42

Cornish communities are being offered up to £2,000 to help spring clean their high streets and smarten up their town and village centres.

Cornwall Council and partners were recently given a last-minute litter-cleaning boost after a £98,400 Government cash injection.

The one-off funding announced by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government is now being made available to community groups and individuals for cleaning, decorating and improving town and village centres across Cornwall. 

They have until May 6 to apply for grants and support worth up to £2,000 to help with projects and activities such as litter picking, graffiti cleaning and chewing gum removal or anything else that will enhance their local environment.

Ruth Gripper, project manager for Cornwall Council’s partner Clean Cornwall which is running the scheme, said: “We want people to tell us what needs doing in their local area.

“It’s up to communities to decide what they need to improve their local areas. It may be something as simple as a piece of equipment or something really imaginative to improve the look of a place. Our aim is to be flexible and to listen to communities about what they need. Then we can supply the money or resources to help them make it happen.”

Councillor Sue James, Cornwall Council’s portfolio holder for the environment and public protection, said: “We take great pride in our beautiful towns and villages across Cornwall, and this scheme gives local residents the opportunity to help make them even better.”

“Clean Cornwall does a great job working with community groups and others to address the issues of litter across the Duchy. These grants are an innovative way of providing extra support for the local community in those efforts.”

Many Cornish towns already have voluntary or community groups looking after their local environment. While this scheme is open to existing groups, parish and town councils, Clean Cornwall is especially keen to hear from individuals who might use this opportunity to create a new group to keep the work going in the future. Their grant could be used for tools and equipment, training, signage, promotional material or to support community events that will encourage others to look after their local area.

Full details and an application form can be found on the Clean Cornwall website and applicants will be asked to provide photographs of the areas they hope to improve, with details of how they plan to spend the money and who will do the work.

It is hoped that at least 40 Cornish communities will be awarded grants. The closing date for applications is May 6 with grants allocated to successful projects shortly afterwards.

Investment plans to improve the lives of residents across Cornwall are approved by full council

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Wed, 17/04/2019 - 10:43

Investment plans designed to improve the lives of residents across Cornwall were approved when the full council met at New County Hall in Truro today.

The projects include the creation of a multi-use coastal trail at Penzance, which will include a new public bike hire scheme, and investment in the roads and sewerage scheme required at the new West Carclaze Garden Village near St Austell.

Funds are also being set aside for the construction of new pedestrian bridges at Launceston, and for investment into essential repairs at schools across Cornwall.

Summarising the £26.4 million investment programme, Councillor Julian German, deputy leader of Cornwall Council, said:  “These plans meet the council’s key priorities; a healthy Cornwall, Homes for Cornwall, a green and prosperous Cornwall, and Connecting Cornwall.

“This investment will enhance service provision, and help to improve the lives of the residents of Cornwall.”

An additional £2.4 million investment into regeneration schemes for South East Cornwall was also on the agenda.  The money will be used to deliver cycling and walking routes as part of a larger £6.4m investment in the area

The full programme includes:

  • £1.1m for progressing the design work and business case for a series of cycling and walking trails in South East Cornwall to improve connectivity, support more active life-styles and encourage more tourism
  • £2.3m towards a flood protection and economic regeneration scheme for Looe which will see Cornwall Council working with the community on designs which will form the basis of bids for further funding
  • £300,000 on further work to enable the regeneration of the Liskeard Old Cattle Market Site where the local community recently took part in a ‘charrette’ to decide for themselves their vision for the site
  • £250,000 for Kerdroya, a project that employs 79 local specially trained workers to keep alive the skills to build traditional Cornish hedges and develop capacity in the industry so that Cornish hedging can be a part of other infrastructure schemes coming forward across Cornwall

Other cabinet recommendations put forward to the council included further investment in the Housing Development Programme action plan, and plans to buy the Cornwall Equipment Loan Store.

Speaking after the meeting, Councillor Adam Paynter, leader of the council, said:  “These investment plans focus on the key areas for this administration, and will see improvements to our cycling network, our roads and our schools.

“It is a real statement of intent, we are getting on with the business of improving our resident’s lives, while remaining responsible with our finances.”
