Public Forum:-  Member of public attended in respect of the pre-school as the Church Hall is no longer fit for purposes.  The lease comes to an end next year and they are looking for either land or another building. They have had numerous meetings with the United Charity and more recently with the Recreational Committee.  They have looked at various sites and meetings with a modular building company. They are now looking at a site at the very top of the muga pitch and are pricing up for a timber framed building. They are hoping they now have this site set. Chairman said on behalf of the Parish Council, we will be discussing CIL money tonight and he thinks as far as we are concerned as long as it is within the parish, we do not have any concerns where it is. We are very supportive of the playschool finding new premises.  The Parish Council could be involved in assisting with the outline planning, the same as we have done in the past to the Sport and Recreation Trust. It appears this needs to be actioned before the next Parish Council Meeting. Chairman suggested we as the Sport and Recreation Trust to expedite this as soon as possible, via the member on the trustees.

Member of the public left the meeting at 7.21pm.

Bolton; Seconded: Councillor A. Barnaby)

Page 1 Min.124/21 BT Pole:-  Clerk asked Councillors if the pole had been removed.  It was noted that it was still in place and notices are on advising removal imminent. Action: Cornwall Councillor Mrs. J. Cruse to follow up and copy Rachael Tatlow in.

Monthly Cornwall Councillor Report:-  Cornwall Councillor Mrs. J. Cruse reported as follows:-

Š         I have received several emails and noted comments on Social Media regarding the dangerous driving along Truro Road. As the Chairman has pointed out this is classed by National Highways as a main trunk road and therefore, cannot be considered for the 20mph is plenty campaign. As there now appears to be damage to property is there any possibility of CCTV cameras in the centre of the village? I have on a previous occasion followed up the misunderstanding regarding where the 30mph was due to be extended to. I have been told that the 40mph is in place where it is as it complies with National Highways speed rules. I would concur the only successful way of controlling speed would be to have average speed cameras in place.


Š         The Bridge at Ruthernbridge is now repaired. Withiel Parish Council are interested in installing a CCTV camera which would have to be on the Nanstallon side of the bridge. I do not favour asking residents to host this. I understand there is a suitable post with an electricity supply. Perhaps we can have a conversation about this. I have confirmation from Cornwall Highways that any property that is damaged by a car or lorry can claim as the victim for damages should there be photographic evidence. The damage at Hellandbridge which was caught on CCTV is being pursued in this manner. The only other idea is a rapid response camera which is put in and taken out and monitored by Tolvaddon. Chairman suggested all three parishes surrounding the bridge possibly contribute towards this. The other practical point is where a camera would be positioned is the angle of it so it can view the number plate. Lanivet Parish Council would have no objections to anything being put up at Ruthernbridge and we support the proposal by Withiel Parish Council to investigate the use of CCTV at Ruthernbridge (Proposed: Councillor; Seconded: Councillor) Action: Cornwall Councillor Mrs. J. Cruse.

Š         The Lakeview (Waterside) complex has been recently purchased and I have seen plans for an Amendment to the provision of 36 Golf Homes. Perhaps we can discuss this at the meeting tomorrow. Clerk mentioned the Parish Council were unable to obtain an extension of time to discuss at our next meeting Action: Cornwall Councillor Mrs. J. Cruse to establish whether this is any CIL money connected to this development, she will also query the access.

Š         The embargo on the Camel SAC remains as Natural England produced some new data which affected the Councils’ calculator.  Work continues to go ahead to find solutions that are workable. I attended a presentation which gave all the options available for mitigation and it was clear that some of the solutions would involve developers in considerable expense. Some solutions would take years to provide results.

Š         Average speed cameras, she asked how much more it would cost.  Chairman reported it would be approximately £40,000. Chairman asked if Cornwall Councillor Mrs. J. Cruse could take the lead on this Action: Cornwall Councillor Mrs. J. Cruse

Chairman thanked Cornwall Councillor Mrs. J. Cruse’s for her report and attending the meeting this evening and for everything she does.

Highway Issues/Footpath Issues/Damaged Signs in the Parish (Including Maintenance of Verges in the Parish and update on report from Cormac):-


Highway Issues:- None.

Maintenance of Verges in the Parish:- Chairman reported after speaking with Rachael Tatlow they were going to finish tidying up the footpath area from St. Benets Abbey into the village. The other matter was the 5.2 metres for the trees to be taken down. Rachael Tatlow had sent a map which was an extract from the Land Registry that shows the problem we have on Truro Road.

Everything on the inside of the footpath is usually the landowners responsibility and is in parts of the village, however, when you get below the Fish and Chip Shop, it appeared the boundary finished at the river and not at the footpath. It was suggested that Rachael Tatlow looks at the Land Registry to establish who is responsible for what in the whole of the area walked.  Councillor A. Barnaby advised she had taken details of properties and was going to approach homeowners to tidy their hedges back and send out someone to review what needed action. They were also going to clear the area at Lamorrick. Chairman and Clerk to liaise with Rachael Tatlow Action: Clerk/Chairman.

Footpaths:- Change of Right of Way at Lamorick, Lanivet – Clerk reported an update had been received as follows – We are just about to embark on a round of landowner consultations/informal consultations, however, as this is a recent case you may not receive anything until later this year as we have a back log of over 100 cases awaiting consultation. When we do carry out the consultation, we will be looking for evidence to either support or refute the status of a path. Matters such as privacy, unsuitability or lack of use for instance are not relevant when considering if historical public rights exist, so that is something to bear in mind for the future. In preparation for the consultation if you, or your Parishioners, are interested in researching the background to this case and seeing what documentary evidence exists then I would suggest a visit to Kresen Kernow Kresen Kernow – A home for Cornwall's archives to look at the available historical documentation for themselves. It is also worth reading one of the Council’s Decision Reports to gauge the type of information that we will be looking for. Examples can be found here Definitive Map Modification Order Reports - Cornwall Council Action: Keep Pending. 


Damaged Signs in the Parish:-  None.

Lanivet Parish Historic Buildings (Including (a) Lanivet & District Under Fives Church Hall and proposals; (b) Nanstallon Chapel Update):-


Nanstallon Chapel Update:- Councillor Miss P. Bolton reported an update on the Nanstallon Chapel - This was recently posted on Facebook by the Chapel Committee - We have communicated to the Local Methodist Circuit that we as a village would like to acquire the Chapel for use as a community hall. The local Methodist Circuit have held many meetings and obtained a valuation report on the methods and value of any disposal. To date they have only responded to us verbally, indicating that locally they are supportive of our request. It is, however, not totally the Local Circuits decision, as they have to send a report on their decisions to the Methodist HQ in Manchester. The latest information is that this has been done and they are hoping that Manchester will approve disposal by  the Local Circuit, possibly within 6 weeks. In order to safeguard the village acquiring the Chapel we have applied to have the building designated as a community asset, thus if approved preventing its sale for housing for a period of time. We may also need to formalise the permissive right of way through the Chapel grounds from Institute Hill to Chapel Road. In order to do this, we will need written statements from users indicating it’s use for 20 years. We are now at a stage where we feel another Village meeting is necessary to fully update the Villagers and to confirm their desire and commitment to acquire the Chapel and set up a Charitable Incorporated Organisation [CIO] with Trustees, Members and Committee to proceed to the next stage. We will, therefore, be holding a Village meeting at 7pm on Tuesday 3rd of May in St Stephens Church (as this is the only venue big enough to hold a large number of people). Please find time to attend and have your say. This may be our only chance of acquiring the Chapel for the benefit of the Village. Interim Community Hall Group. Please pass this information on to anyone not on Facebook. Notices will be posted on the notice boards and in the bus shelter.






Community Task Force:- Councillor A. Harris reported years ago there were people in the parish that would carry out different jobs. There are small works that are required with the community, and he would like to find a way of going out to the parish and see if anyone was interested in starting a small community project.  It was agreed to keep on the next agenda Action: Clerk.
