Steve stated that a lot of twigs and leaves are falling off the hedges along the pavement towards Figgy Crescent – Derek agreed to take a look and report back to the next meeting.

 

  1. Cornwall Councillors Report:

The residents of Chapel have been complaining that traffic is again using their road as a cut through to avoid traffic on the main roads.The Police are aware of this as the drivers are breaking the law ignoring signs prohibiting this. Not sure what we can do to help, but hopefully the Police will able to act.

The access through the hedge at the Village is now back with enforcements as Planning Permission was refused.

The Planning Application for land next to the Village has been refused by the Planning Officer for two reasons – the housing build rate has now been reached for this area and the design/layout of the parking was not acceptable.

Enforcement notices have been served on families at Willow Way – they have been given until February 2018 to remove everything from the land.There is no further chance to appeal so they will now have to move.

Rubbish has been attacked at Kestle Mill – John is looking into providing bin protection.

  1. Allotments:

A new quote has been obtained for the fence in front of the allotments at a cost of £2098.00.  The Parish Council discussed using some solar farm money to fund this and agreed to allow the Clerk to go forward with this quote.

No further information received from Ralph & Co – Clerk has chased the solicitors but in spite of further correspondence with our solicitor we still have had no response.

Derek has agreed to chase up Ralph & Co to see if he can get an answer.

Derek is obtaining quotes to improve the entrance to the Recreation Field – at present the Garden Centre are putting together a price for him.

Maurice is looking into providing a defibrillator for the village – Helen will approach the ambulance service for some advice.

The car park to the recreation field is not good – there are huge holes and the rat fencing has disintegrated.  The current fencing needs to be removed, then new extended fencing installed.  We also need to resurface the car park.  As a temporary measure we could fill the holes with scalpings.  Derek will investigate and bring the results to the next meeting.

The football club will have some money available for this, but they are currently awaiting release of funding.

  1. Chairman’s Report

Good evening ladies and gentlemen.

The parish council has struggled to enthuse parishioners to serve on the council this past year and is still short of our allocated number.

The councillors who do serve are people, who have the busiest lifestyles, and I thank all of you now for your commitment to our parish and particularly I would like to thank my Vice Chair, Kathy Waters for all her help and support.

This year, new work has been carried out on the toddler’s play area at the recreation ground with the help of a substantial grant and it appears to be well used.

Our repeat contractual works - that is recreation field mowing, estate road spraying, strimming of enclosed play area and spraying our bridge pathways are all agreed for the coming year.

The most significant change to our normal financial duties is the administration of monies coming from the Denzil Downs wind farm and the solar panels at St. Mawgan.

These monies are ring-fenced for improvements to recreation, leisure, education, green initiatives and general benefits to the people of our parish.

Some schemes are already in the pipeline for consideration, and I am hoping other schemes will come forward from organisations and parishioners.

The big success of the year must be the opening of the allotments.

The Duchy of Cornwall has signed a 99 year lease with the parish council at a pepper-corn rent.

The Parish Council has delegated the running of the allotments to a committee and I am pleased to report an enthusiasm from the committee and allotment holders.

My final thanks goes to our clerk, Di Willett.

Di works tirelessly for our parish and my role as chairman would be very much more difficult without her constant support.

Thank You Di!

 

  1. Cornwall Councillor’s Report:

John stated that he didn’t intend to dwell on the past, but instead to look forward to the future.

He updated us on the enforcement issue at the Kier site - the proposed entrance through the hedge into the residential area.Kier have been given 28 days to respond.

The problems at Sunnyside have been dealt with.

The Boardmasters application is due before Strategic Planning in June to discuss the traffic issue.The RAF have an agreement on the use of Treloy and Trebelsue gates which cannot be changed.

Speed issues on North Way – at present highways cannot enforce a speed limit on this road from Chapel to Gypsy Corner as there is no development along here at present, however once the school is built this will change.Hopefully a speed limit will be put in place at this time.

Traffic calming on East Road – project will not now start until February 2018 due to reprioritisation of schemes.

After two years the signs are now ready to be erected to take traffic via the new road into Newquay north and Porth – this should ease some of the traffic through Quintrell Downs.

 

  1. Public Speaking:

Steve and Ulla from the allotment committee asked if it was possible for the Parish Council to purchase some machinery on their behalf as the allotment committee is unable to reclaim VAT charges.This will be put on the agenda for discussion at the next meeting.

  1. Police Report:

 

  1. Public Speaking:

Ulla Kennedy raised concerns of the Allotment Association regarding the Duchy’s plans for a footpath from Quintrell Downs to the new school at Nansledan as this appears to cross the entrance to the allotments.  The full planning application is yet to be received, but when it is submitted the Parish Council will note this.

The white lining has been carried out on the St Columb Major to Newquay road.

John is trying to get the Land Rover which has been left at Trevemper moved.

Post meeting note – vehicle has now been removed.

Fortdown have submitted revised plans following the recent refusal of planning permission.

Sunnyside are also appealing which John will support as we could end up with static caravans and camping again if this does not go through.

John will send through the plans for the traffic calming improvements on East Road.It seems there will now be lines painted rather than building out the kerbs.This will now be done n January 2018 and will hopefully enable the residents of Quintrell Gardens to cross more safely.
