52/21

Matters Arising from the Monthly Meeting held on Thursday 18th February 2021:-

Page 2 Min.24/21 School Governor for Nanstallon:-  Clerk reported that Dan Nattle had been back in touch advising he heard a potential School Governor had come forward to fill the vacancy, not from the Parish Council, although if this did not work out, he would be in touch again.

 

Page 2 Min.122/20 Internal Auditors Report:-  Clerk reported the matters raised had not been dealt with and duly actioned.

 

Page 3 Min.215/20 and Page 7 Min.15/21 Grave spaces with inappropriate surroundings:- Clerk reported nothing further had been heard.  When partial lockdown is lifted, she will visit the Cemetery to see if any action has been taken Action: Keep Pending.

Page 3 Min.7/21 Review of experimental One-Way System:-  Clerk reported an email had been received from Cormac as circulated.  It is hoped once lockdown has been lifted a site visit could then be arranged if still required.

 

Page 3 Min.19/21 Bank Signatories:-  Clerk reported she had completed the mandate for removal of Steve Walker and David Carter and would action new Councillors after the May Elections and Meeting Action: Clerk.

 

Page 3 Min.7/21 Build-up of Mud past Tremayle Farm going out of Nanstallon:- Clerk reported Councillor Miss P. Bolton had reported she had followed up and recently noted the rain had washed the mud away.  Councillor S. Jennings had reported the area seems to be fine now.

 

Page 3 Min.6/21(1) Drainage Problems at Lamorrick:- Clerk reported several items of correspondence had been sent from Cornwall Councillor C. Batters in respect of this issue.  Response received - Unfortunately the work will require a road closure to ensure an adequate safety zone around the works area.  As can be expected at this time of the year, programmed highway works have been delayed in many cases, due to resources being allocated to emergency and high priority safety works that occur during the winter period. The barrier at Lamorrick will need to remain in place until the repair works are carried out and an inspection will take place to ensure the barriers are secure following the report below.

 

Page 4 Min.30/21 Pothole on Highway near Public Conveniences:- Response received from Cormac advising hopefully Parish Councillors are aware by now that highway defects such as potholes can be reported directly via the Council’s online reporting system. This will ensure the defects are inspected in a timely manner in accordance with our inspection response times, that the correct and specific location is visited, and that the person reporting the highway defect is provided with appropriate updates following the submission of their defect report.  Further guidance and information regarding the use of the online system can be provided for dissemination at the Parish Councils meetings, if this is useful.

 

Page 11 Min.46/21 Query in respect of recent Parish Council Video:- Response received from CALC advising they are unable to comment on the detailed circumstances of the meeting as portrayed on social media.  They are aware of a number of legal points which have been missed in the subsequent social and national media reporting which were detailed in the response received.

Monthly Report from Cornwall Councillor Chris Batters:- Cornwall Councillor C. Batters reported as follows as per email circulated:-

 

1.     Noisy Motor Cyclist – Nanstallon – Received a Sunday morning telephone call from a resident of Nanstallon who was having nightmare problems with a noisy motorcyclist. He supplied me with a recording he had taken that Sunday morning of the noise coming from this motorcyclist racing around in close proximity of his property. As usual I wasted no time in contacting the Police and reporting the incident to the section officer. Later that day the complainant emailed me to say that he had managed to stop the motorcycle rider, had talked to him and he hoped things would be better.

I told him that the incident had already been reported, and at the most the Police would call on the young man and make him aware of the nuisance he is causing.  Not likely that any action would be taken at this stage.

2.     Rosewarrick Travellers Application – Email from Planning Officer that they had submitted an objection to the first application that was being appealed, and at this point in time it is likely they were going to be objecting to the second submitted application.

3.     Gate on Camel Trail - Gate on the Camel Trail near to the Cafe required attention for safety reasons. I reported it and it was attended to and made safe the next day.

4.     Lanivet Methodist Chapel - Spoke with Sally Long regarding the replacement of the windows and her asking if planning permission was required. I did suggest that she contact the Planning Office and seek their opinion as properties such as the Chapel can have conditions attached to them. I also pointed out there could be conditions attached to any removal of the stained windows. 

5.     Large Traffic Queues and Congestion HRWC – Long queues on Lamorrick Hill were reported to me. This was following the re-opening of the centre, and was a problem experienced at most of the counties HWRC's. This may have been the case but with traffic being a continual problem on the hill, proposals came from the Lanivet Parish Council that an alternative route may be possible into the Centre via land to the north of the hill. I have spoken to the Cabinet Member for Waste and a meeting has been agreed following the May elections between the Cornwall Council Cabinet member for Waste, Cormac Management, the Parish Chair and members of the Parish Council, the Land Owner, and the Divisional member towards the possibility of a new entry into the site.

6.     Bodmin Neighbourhood Plans Whilst at a recent meeting with the Mayor and the Bodmin Town Councillors, the Bodmin Neighbourhood Plan was mentioned. I suggested that with the rapid development of Bodmin coming down over the hill towards the Nanstallon Parish boundary,  and the suggestion in the plans a new boundary being drawn that moves into the Nanstallon Parish, that the Lanivet Parish Council should be involved in future discussions and that the Chair of the Lanivet Parish Council become a member of the Bodmin Neighbourhood Team.  Chairman reported he did not want the Parish Council to get involved in the letter that has been sent off to the Government.  His concern is more the whole development of Bodmin and also anecdotal things he has seen online that somehow Cornwall has produced more than 30% more than is required by the Government.  His concern is certainly now it is very visible for anyone going past Lamorick, you can see the encroachment on the fields below Boundary Lane.  Anyone living in Nanstallon can see the houses heading their way now.  He will speak with Jeremy Cooper first to see how we could be involved with their Neighbourhood Plan and perhaps one other Councillor to attend meetings with him.  About 18 months ago there was a big meeting in County Hall when they invited Parish and Town Councils to attend and learnt that when a Town gets up to their boundary it is very easy for them to spill over, developers are not interested in boundaries but buying land.  If in the meantime he could ask someone to assist him with sitting on the Neighbourhood Group, it would help to work together with Bodmin on this and also make our concerns known if applicable Action: Chairman and Clerk to include as an agenda item.

 

 

7.     Concerns have already been voiced to me by some residents of Nanstallon on this matter, and I feel that Lanivet Parish Council, on behalf initially of Nanstallon, should be present in any discussions on these plans. 

8.     These are the main general matters for Parish Council knowledge, all other matters were individual matters.

9.     Woods in your Parish jeopardised by Companies selling them off in Small Plots – Cornwall Councillor C. Batters reported he has problems at Blisland of a similar nature.  About five years ago, someone started building a cabin up in the woods at Lanivet.  He paid an un-scheduled site visit with some Councillors at the time and saw a log cabin of German design, suitable to live in. Someone from St. Blazey to spend weekends in it.  They looked at it through Planning and it was moveable and therefore, not classed as a permanent residence and they could only occupy for a certain amount of time per year.  Therefore, there is nothing stopping them from putting up a wood cabin of this nature.  He does not believe they would have rights to cut down trees for firewood. As the law stands at the moment there is very little chance of anyone building something as a permanent dwelling.  Chairman reported there are parcels available and he believes guidance is required from Cornwall Councillor C. Batters to ensure buildings are not erected. Clerk and Chairman to liaise following the meeting Action: Clerk/Chairman.

Vice-Chairman thanked Cornwall Councillor C. Batters for his monthly report.

Highway Issues/Footpath Issues/Damaged Signs in the Parish (Including Update on Bench Area damage near Six Turnings):-

 

Highway Issues:-  Councillor Mrs. J. Dent reported with the recent bad weather and drains and ditches are cleared out, why Cormac do not take away and just pile up and it just blows back in and causes more blockage.  Cornwall Councillor C. Batters reported they are banned from doing this because of European Law. There are problems with anything coming off fields.  They should at least take the litter away. If there was an abundance of tin cans and rubbish on the highway Biffa could be contacted and they would come and remove.

 

Councillor Mrs. C. Eddy reported recently on the road from the Old A30 coming into the Coach Road, there were multiple people with high viz jackets collecting litter about 11.00pm at night and they put several bags on the side of the road.  Cornwall Councillor C. Batters reported if it is bagged and left, Biffa can also be contacted, and this will be picked up.  Councillor Miss P. Bolton believed it could possibly be volunteers. Councillor D. Austin reported in the village magazine recently there was an advertisement in respect of a litter pick to go ahead.  He would happily speak to the local litter collectors and inform them about contacting Biffa.

 

Footpaths:-  None.

 

Damaged Signs in the Parish:-  None.

 

Update on Bench Area damage near Six Turnings:- Clerk reported she had spoken with the Farmers Wife, who offered to take a message and she confirmed that she could categorically confirm that none of their vehicles drive or even go on this area at all.  Since this the Farmer has called confirming it appears to be cars and is definitely not tractors. 

He confirmed he had read previous minutes and felt the suggestion of boulder stones was the best option as it would stop this happening. Chairman circulated a photograph and he had concerns as there are tyre tracks across it and he does not know how long people have been driving over it.  It was resolved to leave with the Services Working Party to come up with a solution, using the most cost effective way and come back to the Parish Council Action: Services Working Party (Councillors D. Batten, T. Hancock, A. Barnaby and T. Grose).

Update on Zoom and Payment Method, i.e., Parish Council Debit Card or PayPal:- Clerk reported when she had tried to apply for Zoom, it required a credit/debit card or PayPal payment and the Parish Council had neither.  She called them and unfortunately this is the only way of paying for this service.  She suggested going forward for any purchases online a debit card would be beneficial and similar to making a bank transfer payment, Chairman of Finance agreed with this suggestion.  It was resolved the Clerk obtains a debit card for the Parish Council.  It was agreed to wait until April to discuss Zoom again (Proposed: Councillor D. Austin; Seconded: Councillor S. Jennings) Action: Clerk.

Lanivet Parish Affordable Housing Working Party Update from Chairman:- Chairman reported that at the last meeting he was going to chair a meeting with Clann House, and it went really well.  CCLT are working to get a properly signed memorandum of understanding so that access into the site will all be laid down legally and other areas of maintaining, once down a planning application will be submitted and it is hoped to complete this by the end of April.

 

Tour of Britain Cycle Race to be held in September – Chairman reported he has an initial meeting with Sarah Simms of the Network Committee with other Councillors. Police and Tour of Britain themselves will be involved with this.  It will be held on the 5th September 2021.  He wants to suggest that hopefully we will be out of restrictions and perhaps we can involve local businesses and do something on the Village Green.  Television Cameras will be around as well Action: Next Agenda.

Lanivet Parish Sport & Recreation Trust Update:- Mr. D. Carter sent a report as follows:-

Firstly, the One For All Community Centre  - Not a lot of change since last month, but a bit of progress in some areas. Since the last lock down the hall and sports areas still remain closed for most activities, although, complying with all regulations, the necessary risk assessments having been carried out, the Hall is considered Covid-19 secure, therefore some meetings which are exempt from government national restrictions are still able to take place, such as local surgeries Flu Jab days etc.

The school children organised by Argyle Foundation Trust use the MUGA every day for their outdoor exercise.  The installation of equipment to keep risks to a minimum is continuing especially related to hand contact on any contaminated surfaces. Automatic door closures have been fitted to most doors, the toilets are being modified to automatic taps and automatic contactless flushing, all this is in addition to our own strict cleaning regime. The outside sports areas are being maintained helped by our volunteers keeping everything up and ready when again required. Normally all this work on the building or sport areas would be funded from the hire revenue, however, it is needed, and we will fund it from reserves. We, however, keep up a constant search for grants and support to maintain and improve the facilities for the Parish. We have recently negotiated with and received a grant from DEFRA of £10,000 toward the new Café Building work on the new café training room is hoped to restart soon, a decision will be made once more details of Government plans are known. The community sixteen seater mini bus is being prepared ready for July, if regulations allow.

 

Secondly Covid 19 - Barry Cornelius and his team are continuing with their efforts working in conjunction with the local surgeries, deliveries and collections of prescriptions and other requirements are still on a daily service. Transport for the elderly to get their jab and to hospital appointments are increasing. At the moment this is still free to residents of Lanivet Parish, however the costs mount up and we are still striving to acquire funding to maintain this free service for at least another six months. Occasionally we do get called upon to support other areas and for this there is a small charge.  

 

Councillor Mrs. J. Dent reported that an application had been received from Barry Cornelius for Wren from the Solar Farm.  She would email Wren advising that if no other applications had been received by the deadline, she would recommend the full amount is granted to the hall Action: Councillor Mrs. J. Dent.

Community Network Panel Meeting Update:-  Councillor Mrs. J. Dent sent an email with a report from the last meeting before the May elections.

 

Sarah Sims informed the members that the next meeting would be the AGM. The current Chair would be stepping down now, so a new Chair will be elected at that meeting. 

 

Police Update: Report had been circulated prior to the meeting. They are expecting to be busy this summer with visitors and the G7 Summit. Reggie also informed the panel that Bodmin had recruited three new sergeants.

 

Heidi Clemo, Census Engagement Manager reminded the group about the up-coming census. She also pointed out that although they had lobbied for the inclusion of Cornish as an ethic group, it was not included. However, people can fill in 'Cornish' as a preference.

 

An up-date on the Tour of Britain was given by Sarah Sims. It is planned for 5th September 2021. Bodmin are moving ahead with their plans for the finish. Lanivet  have been invited to the planning meetings as we are directly affected by the event.

 

 

The Cabinet member and CLT Representative gave information about the National Bus Strategy. Cornwall has been selected to take part in the 'bus fare pilot'. A question was raised about the number of empty buses on our roads. However, they are being funded by the Government to provide an essential service, and to ensure that any key workers always have the opportunity to get to work. So, they will continue to run to schedule even with fewer passengers. It is hoped that a reduction in fares will take place by the Autumn. Cornwall has 100 new buses running, we now have the youngest bus fleet in the country, which are carbon efficient.

 

A full set of notes will be available at a later date.

 

Chairman wanted to add to what was said at the meeting congratulating Councillor Mrs. J. Dent for chairing the meeting so well from the whole of the Parish Council and certainly you have put your own impression on the whole meeting.  It is certainly in far better position than it was before, also what a success it has been.  How well the Parishes and Bodmin Town Council are working together, this says a lot from the chairmanship.  Thank you for all you have done, will be a hard act to follow.  Councillor Mrs. J. Dent thanked the Chairman for the kind words.

 

61/21

Lanivet Village Green/Play Equipment/Car Park/Bus Shelters:-  Chairman reported that Councillor A. Barnaby and himself are trying to get The Lawn Ranger to carry out work on trees before the end of the financial year.

 

Lanivet Car Park:-  No update.

 

Bus Shelters:-  No update.

 

62/21

Camel Trail Update:- Report received from Councillor Miss P.

Email received from Cormac advising that work on Grogley Bridge is due to start in March and will take approximately four weeks to complete.  In those weeks all access across the bridge will be closed to the public.

 

63/21

Cemetery Matters (Including any applications for memorials, inscriptions):- Cremation Tablet application for second inscription received from Kerrow Memorials for an additional inscription for the late John Blake.  It was resolved to accept this application as per our regulations (Proposed: Councillor Mrs. J.

Councillor D. Batten declared a pecuniary interest in respect of the following additional inscription application and abstained from discussion and voting:-

Pascoe & Sons (Granite) Limited for an additional inscription for the late Gillian Mary Batten.  It was resolved to accept this application as per our regulations (Proposed: Councillor Mrs. J. Dent; Seconded: Councillor Mrs. C. Eddy) Action:  Clerk.

 

Chairman reported a deceased tree has been removed from the Old Church Cemetery.  He recently visited the Cemetery, and it is looking so neat and tidy, and he is very pleased with the works carried out.  A tree was also removed from the Under 5’s area that also needed removing.

Public Conveniences Update:- Clerk reported a response had been received in respect of the clinical waste – There are currently 4 clinical waste bins, one in each of the ladies, none in the disabled just a swing bin, she suggests if one is required in the disabled to replace the swing bin, but they do not appear to put clinical waste in this bin at all anyway.  Contents are disposed of in a black sack with the normal waste, she leaves with the normal rubbish in the village, and this only goes out every 3-4 months and most of this is paper hand towels, mainly from the gents, she does not carry in her van at all. She advised she barely gets any clinical waste; people appear to be using as a normal waste bin.  There may be an odd nappy or sanitary project, which would normally go into household waste.  The main people using the toilets at present are men, during their working day travelling through.  Currently there is only cubicle open in each toilet only.  Clerk to follow up whether the Contractor is insured for such things as needles Action: Clerk.

 

Email from Steve Walker in respect of contact information for drainage work following discussion on the Public Conveniences Drainage issues.  The firm are called APS and they apparently carry out work for quite a few Councils and are at the present time working for Newquay Town Council, so should have all the relevant documentation in place.  He would recommend them and certainly vouch for the work they did at his place, as being tidy and efficient.  Chairman suggested if and when we get another blockage we ask for a camera and request a full report.

Neighbourhood Watch Schemes for Lanivet and Nanstallon:- Councillor Miss P. Bolton reported this was originally started on social media, however, they have now included in the bus shelter noticeboard and in the local magazine and they will meet again in April.  Cornwall Councillor C. Batters suggested that Nanstallon and Lanivet perhaps join together, however, this is up to the Parish Council entirely.  There is definitely interest as far as he is aware, and he believes it is good to have some Neighbourhood Watch Signs around the villages.  Chairman asked if there were Councillors that would like to take this on board and take up with people who may be interested in the village and get something put together.  Councillor Mrs. C. Eddy suggested it is included in the Parish Magazine Action: Clerk to include something on the Lanivet Parish Council Facebook page to see if anyone is interested.  Clerk to include on the next agenda.
