Parish Council update as at January 2020

Firstly an update on Cornwall’s Community Governance Review. The panel held an extraordinary meeting on 10th December to review the submitted recommendations and South Petherwin Parish Council were very pleased to learn that their recommendations (retention of the current Pennygillam Industrial Estate boundary and the move of the boundary in Tregadillett) had been accepted. The next phase of the Review is the publication of the draft recommendations for public consultation. This was due to take place from 11th December 2019 and 24th March 2020 but exact dates are to be confirmed.

Parish Councillors met with Cormac on 11th December to determine a way ahead regarding the proposal to implement parking restrictions by the telephone box and public toilets. It was agreed that, due to the wide range of views received from parishioners for and against the proposal, Cormac would carry out an online consultation. This would enable all interested parties to put forward their opinions and comments Cormac could then provide advice to the Parish Council on the recommended solution. The necessary documents are currently being devised but once the consultation dates are known the Parish Council will publicise this widely to enable everyone to have their say.

The meeting with Cormac also covered; moss and weeds on the footpath from Tiny Meadows, the potholes outside the village hall, and the water on the road from South Petherwin to Petherwin Water. Cormac committed to taking action on these issues. Speeding traffic through the village was also discussed at length. It was decided a speeding traffic survey would be carried out near to the Methodist Church Hall. Using the results of this survey a decision would then be made on the best speed reduction measure to be put in place, if necessary.

The Parish Council will be holding a parish event on Saturday 22nd February from 10 am to 1 pm. At the event the Council hopes to have representation from the local Speed Watch team and neighbourhood watch, details on the parking restrictions proposal and an update on the Launceston Medical Centre expansion. The Parish Council is also very keen to hear your views on speeding traffic in the village and the establishment of a Parish climate change working group. Your opinion would be very much appreciated.

Finally thank you very much to St Paternus Church for the wonderful Christmas display in the telephone box. If you have any ideas for the future of the village telephone box please let us know or come along to the Parish event on 22nd February.

A very Happy New Year from South Petherwin Parish Council.
