The Minutes of 6th June 2017 Council meeting were accepted unanimously.

Matters Arising

County Councillor J. Foot had raised the lack of repair of Mushton Lane with Cornwall Council highways but had been told there was insufficient use to merit improvement. County Councillor J. Foot promised to try and escalate the issue.

Planning Permission

The Council considered the following Planning Applications:

PA17/04856 Barn at Polborder, change of use to dwelling. The Council rejected the application on the grounds it had not been used as a barn for 10 years and therefore did not comply with planning policy 2.36

PA17/04795 Unit 2 Briston Orchard, change of use to a complementary therapy centre. The Council approved the application.

PA17/04834 The Mews Pillaton, erection of 1st floor extension and a 2 storey extension. The Council rejected the application on the grounds that it created a workshop in a residential area and was too large for the surroundings.

Thanks were given to Cllr Martin for producing copies of the applications for study.

Number of County Councillors

The Council did not accept the proposal to reduce the number of Cornwall County Councillors from 123 in number to 87 but wished to keep the existing number.


The following payments were approved; £108 for grass cutting and £38.50 website hosting and domain name.

Cluster Meetings

County Councillor J. Foot said he would continue to organise Cluster meetings.

Any Other Business

The repair to the roads was welcomed.

Concern was expressed about dog fouling below the Hollies and it was hoped that dog owners could act responsibly.
