Declarations of Interest


Public Forum

There were no members of the public present.


The Minutes of 6th September 2016 Council meeting were accepted unanimously.

Matters Arising

It was noted that some drains had been cleared but some remained blocked.

It was also noted that the Environment Agency had shown concern regarding the blocked leat at Pillaton Mill and the matter had been rectified.

Planning Permission

It was understood that the application for a barn conversion at Rick Park farm was being revised.

Affordable Homes

In the absence of sufficient information regarding the possible siting of affordable homes within the Parish boundary the Council decided to request a visit from the Housing Trust involved.


The Council recognised the problem of smells arising from putting dog waste in the bin adjacent to the Old Post Office and agreed that dog owners should be requested to use the dog waste bins. This request would be advertised through the Village News and web site together with a notice on the bin itself. However the Council recognise the fact that Cornwall Council allows dog waste to be put in any bin including household bins.

Any Other Business

Cllr Warne said that he had begun to repair slats on the Village seats and Cllr Heap promised volunteers to carry out the work.

The Clerk was asked to bring County Councillor D. Pugh’s attention to the continuing problems with pot holes.
