The Minutes of 16th January 2013 meeting were accepted unanimously.

Matters Arising

It was noted that County Councillor Egglestone had drawn the attention of Cornwall Council development officer to the structure at Polborder.

A reply had been received from Cornwall Highways about the broken signposts in the area, dead trees overhanging the road near the river and the lack of fencing at the edge of the river where a tree had fallen. The reply stated that matters may be dealt with when funds were available and that the state of the pavement at Briars Ryn and Tiddlers Well would be investigated.

Leaking Salt Bin

The Chairman provided photographs of the hinge of the salt bin which allowed water to enter the bin. The Clerk was asked to report the fault to Cornwall Council who had supplied the bin. Thanks were given to Gary Bridgman who had drained the bin and replaced sacks of salt.

Damage to Church

The Council resolved to write to the Parochial Church Council offering support for the replacement of the turret and stating that the Parish Council would be happy to volunteer a member of the Parish Council to sit on any Committee involved with repair of the Church. The Council also decided to offer to pay for any rental of the Village Hall for Church services whilst the Church was being repaired and congratulated the Parochial Church Council on the speed with which remedial work was being carried out.

Planning Permission

The Council approved the application for a barn conversion at Tremoan as a holiday let.


The bank position was recorded as follows; Current account £644 and deposit account £3,137.

The following payments were approved; weeding of plants £366 (from grant funds) and hedge cutting £24.

Any Other Business

Cllr Hoskin gave feed back on the recent community network meeting indicating that future builds would require a levy from which areas where the development took place could benefit. Cuts to environment grants were also likely.

Cllr Harris reported that 250 maps of local walks had been prepared and thanks were recorded to Cllr Martin and Robin Dwane for their help with the design and printing of the walk leaflets at no cost.
