Declarations of Interest


Public Forum

There were two members of the public present who expressed concern that the public footpath from Polborder to St Mellion was impassable. The Council agreed to assist in seeking improvement to the path by contacting the Duchy of Cornwall and Cllr Harris volunteered to speak to the Land Agent.


The Minutes of 4th July 2017 Council meetings were accepted unanimously.

Matters Arising


Planning Permission

The Council approved the following Planning Application; PA17/08089 Two storey rear extension at 3 Chapel Place.

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

Finger Post Refurbishment

It was noted that the householder adjacent to the finger post in the centre of the Village had objected to the repainting of the post. The Parish Council had sought advice from Cornwall Highways and been assured that the Parish Council had authority to refurbish the sign. Accordingly a contractor had been instructed to carry out the work largely using grant funds. This issue has resulted in a delay to the refurbishment.

Data Protection

The Council believed it was premature to attend a training course on Data protection and County Councillor J. Foot kindly undertook to seek further advice.


The following payment was approved; £15 for a Remembrance Day wreath.

Housing Survey

The housing survey indicated that there was a need for social housing in the area and the Council decided there was no need for any further meetings until firm proposals as to the site for the houses were submitted by the Housing Trust.

Any Other Business

Councillor Bridgman generously offered to examine the finger post at Ellbridge with a view to removing the fingers for repainting.

Councillors agreed that they would receive agendas and copy minutes by email in future.
