The Council resolved to host a meeting in the Village Hall in order to carry out a survey regarding the need for affordable homes for the residents of Pillaton.

Planning Permission



The following payments were approved; Clerks annual salary £720 and HMRC £180.

Any Other Business

A letter had been received complaining about the mud on the road at the bottom of the Village. The Council noted that they had no authority over such issues and would respond suggesting the author complain via Cornwall Council web site.

County Councillor D. Pugh promised to find out the cost of digging up a public road to assist in preventing water damage to the Hall.
