He is also Chairman of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site Partnership board. Cllr. German has received a response on speed reading at Trethewell, which is of interest due to the proposed development at St Just in Roseland. 30 mph seems to be a realistic speed limit for the area, and it was noted there was no recorded accidents in the last three years. Cllr. Chart pointed out that there had been a fatal accident in the area and a very serious accident previously. Cllr. Teague asked Cllr. German what he thought of the proposed development. Cllr German views were that Affordable Housing for the Parish is good, especially as the Affordable Homes will include rented properties. He is not convinced that it is an ideal site as access and sewerage is an issue, but it is a site that has come forward and therefore the Parish Council will need to review it as a planning application in due course.

There was a site visit to 27 Marine Parade on 30th October; this was attended by the Planning Officer, Kevin Moseley, Steve Hooper (agent), David Hubbard (St Mawes & St Just Society) Cllr. Farmiloe, Cllr. Giles and Cllr. Benney, Cornwall Cllr. German and Clerk Shirley Penhaligon. The Planning Officer is minded to approve, and agreed to put two conditions on the permission, namely that the ancillary annexe will not be used as a separate dwelling, and that there needs to be an advertised schedule of works to limit the impact of the development.

The Assistant Clerk gave a brief description of a recent planning training event, on Neighbourhood Planning and Landscape Character Assessments. A Landscape Character Assessment can aid decisions on how local distinctiveness and local character can be safeguarded, improved and enhanced through the development process and can encourage the use of local materials, traditional building styles and methods. This can be included within a Neighbourhood Plan or as a separate document. Cornwall Council supplied documents on best practise and these will be circulated to the Councillors.

f) To further consider the next step with Neighbourhood Planning
Cornwall Cllr. German provided feedback from the Neighbourhood Plan (NP) meeting on 17th October, and
confirmed there was strong local support and that the NP would be community led. A further public meeting will
be held in Veryan on 11th December. Concerns were raised regarding the overall cost of a NP and how it will be
funded. Cornwall Cllr. German explained that the cost of a NP was dependant on the content and what the
community wanted; therefore further community consultation is needed. He offered £1,000 from his budget
towards the costs. It was agreed that the Clerks Office write to Cornwall Council stating the Parish Council’s support for a Roseland Neighbourhood Plan.

g) To further consider undertaking the completion of the Tree Preservation update
The Assistant Clerk has requested a list of all TPO’s within the Parish from Cornwall Council including maps and copies of all the Orders. Cornwall Council is unable to provide this information. Cornwall Cllr. German kindly agreed to raise this with Cornwall Council.

12. Proposed development at St Just in Roseland
To consider the feedback from the pre application planning meeting with CSA Architects regarding the
proposed development at St Just in Roseland

CSA Architects presented proposed development plans for a site at the rear of The Bowling Green in St
Just in Roseland. Featuring two alternatives, with differing mixtures of tenure and layout:
1st Option – 19 dwellings of which 12 will be affordable and 7 open market. The affordable homes will be
for sale at discounted prices, none will be for rent.
2nd Option – 18 dwellings of which 10 will be affordable and 8 open market. The affordable homes will be
7 rented, 3 intermediate (shared ownership).

Councillors felt that more homes for rent rather than purchase would be preferable, and expressed their
personal concerns regarding the following:
1. The safety and visibility aspect of the proposed vehicular access at Trethewell.
2. The safety and visibility aspect of any pedestrian access along the main road at Trethewell to the bus-stop.
3. There was concern that the infrastructure would be put in place to deal with the additional sewage.
4. The mix and style of housing needs to be reconsidered.
5. It was felt that there was lack of garaging and garden space.

Councillors were very keen that the Architects considered the needs of the local community when drawing up
their plans. They recommended that an open presentation of the plans for the community would be a good way of
obtaining feedback on local opinion and also giving the opportunity to clarify the proposals as Councillors were
aware of many conflicting reports.

CSA Architects thanked the group for their feedback and agreed to look at issues raised, and they suggested that
an open meeting with the local community as the way forward to get their feedback and support.

It was agreed to discuss item 14 before item 13.

b) To consider the next stage of a complaint
Cllr. German has agreed to write to the complainant about her parking fine.

Cllr Baylis advised of the possibility of there being a delay in Cornwall Council submitting its revised parking order. Cornwall Cllr German agreed to try to establish Cornwall Council’s position with regard to its intentions. It is though still hoped to join with Cornwall Council rather than face the high cost of “going it alone”.

Cllr Baylis confirmed that if a local business would pay 1p for advertising on the reverse of each car park ticket, then a modest profit could be made on the approximately 60,000 tickets issued per year. This matter will be addressed by the car park committee at its meeting on 18th November.

13. Millennium Rooms Management Committee
a) To consider the recommendations from the MRMC meeting held on 5th October 2012 (Appendix 3)
The Clerk confirmed that Tony Hopewell has agreed in principle to swap the print room with the Clerks office.

proposed to keep the rent charge at the same price, £2,730 per annum, seconded by Cllr. Chart. All in favour.
RESOLVED by the Council.

To further consider the future financing of St Just Public Conveniences
Clarification has been given from Cornwall Council regarding the Public Convenience Grant. Due to a formula

The Assistant Clerk attended the recent Roseland and Truro Community Network meeting, and reported that the
Police gave an update which said there was a 100% increase in marine theft this summer which appears to be organised crime. There are no plans to reduce service level in Tregony, the only change will be the location to a village hall when the Police Station has been sold.

The Parish Council agreed that the Clerk obtain quotes from three sources regarding the works.

21. Lark field Rise
To consider supporting the residents who are experiencing problems
The Chairman consulted with Councillors to allow standing orders to be suspended in order to let Claire Rogers speak. Claire referred to the letter Crawford Rogers wrote to the Parish Council on 11th September which stated there are a number of properties at Larkfield Rise that have serious constructional defects that have existed since the start of the scheme and for two and half years they have repeatedly asked Devon and Cornwall Housing Association (DCHA) to remedy the problems. DCHA have now admitted liability and have started deconstruction on one of the properties which they are re-constructing to the required original specification. The letter requests that the Parish Council support and assist the residents of Larkfield Rise. The Parish Council have previously written to DCHA on behalf of the residents regarding the fencing and other problems. Some works have started to remedy the problems. Cornwall Cllr German has raised the issues concerned with housing officers from DCHA, and he assured that he will continue to raise this in meetings. Cllr. Giles suggested all 19 homes be surveyed, as the people reporting problems tend to be in part ownership, and are more likely to report structural damage. The Clerk will write to Devon and Cornwall Housing Association and express the Parish Council’s concern, and ask for a time-frame of when the reported works will be completed to bring homes to an acceptable standard.

11. Planning
a) To consider the meetings of the Planning Committee held in the period 4th September to 30th September – No meetings were held in this period.

b) The Council considered the following planning applications:

20. 07230 Bar Point, St Just in Roseland. Extensions (inc dormer extensions & alterations to dwelling).Reviewed by Cllrs. Teague, Warren and G. Chenoweth. All object. The applicants withdrew the application and have submitted a revised sketch which is being reviewed by the Planning Committee.

22. 07773 27 Marine Parade, St Mawes. Ancillary detached annexe – alteration to pitch roof on existing extension. Reviewed by Cllrs. Farmiloe, Salter, Giles.

17. Affordable Homes in the Parish of St Just in Roseland
a) To further consider steps to move the initiative forward
The Chairman consulted with Councillors to allow standing orders to be suspended in order to allow Steve Pearce
to speak. His view was that councillors represent residents of their particular ward and they need to know what the
residents of St Just in Roseland think of this development therefore there should be a public meeting. Cllr. Teague
understands that there were some covenants at the time of the development of the Bowling Green to ensure that
the land in front would not be built on. If there are covenants Cllr. Giles said this would be a private civil matter.
Cllr. Giles proposed an informal meeting with the developers and the Parish Council first before a public
consultation event which would be held in St Just in Roseland, seconded by Cllr. Williams. All in favour.
RESOLVED by the Council.

Cllr. Warren invited councillors to a meeting with Nick Marsden Affordable Housing Officer from Cornwall
Council on Friday 5th October, to discuss local housing needs and to ensure that the affordable homes that will be
delivered will be meeting the need of the community.

Cllr. Williams wrote a personal letter to Sarah Newton MP, regarding the relaxing of planning laws and the
proposals to reduce the requirements of affordable housing elements within Section 106 agreements. Cornwall
Cllr. German agreed that the Parish Council and local communities should be voicing their concerns. Cllr. Warren
proposed that the Clerks Office respond to the consultation that ends on the 8th October. Seconded by Cllr. Giles.
All in favour. RESOLVED by the Council.

18. Cornwall Council Consultation – Charging Framework for Traffic Management at Community and
other events
Cllr. Williams proposed that the Clerks Office write to Cornwall Council to object to the charging frameworks as
proposed. Seconded by Cllr. Warren. All in favour. RESOLVED by the Council.

19. Speed in the Parish
a) To consider implementing a 20 mph speed limit in St Mawes and St Just village
The Chairman consulted with Councillors to allow standing orders to be suspended in order to allow Steve Pearce
to speak, Steve Pearce did not think that the 30 mph limit already in St Just in Roseland and entering St Mawes
was adhered to, and if this was enforced, it would be an achievement. Cornwall Cllr. German suggested speaking
to the Police and residents and councillors in Tregony, as they now have a 20 mph speed limit through the village,
in order to find out how it is working for them.

b) To consider the use of speed guns in the parish
Cllr. Benney reported that the Police had an article in the West Briton as they want to train people
living in Truro and surrounding villages to use a speed radar gun as part of their community speedwatch
initiative. The speedwatch team would be sent to particular areas in response to concerns raised by residents. It
was agreed to discuss this at the Cluster meeting in Veryan on the 9th October.

______________________________________________

Draft for conformation
Minutes of the Meeting of St Just in Roseland Parish Council held in Millennium Rooms, St Mawes on Monday 3rd September 2012. The meeting commenced at 7pm.

Councillors Present:
The Chairman Cllr. A K Warren, Cllrs. R G Baylis, A.M Chart, B Chenoweth, G Chenoweth, P Farmiloe, R.E Giles, P.J Salter, P Teague and C. Williams

Also Present:
S. Penhaligon (Clerk), T van der Wolde (Assistant Clerk), Cornwall Cllr. J. German, P.C Duckworth and two members of the public.

1. To accept apologies for absence – Cllr. J. Benney

2. Declaration of Interest:
a) Pecuniary Interest – none
b) Non Pecuniary Interest – Cllr. Giles declared a non pecuniary interest in Item 13.b (item11) of the Agenda.
c) Of gifts to the value of more than £50 – none

3. Open Period – Public Participation – Keith Fisher expressed concern for the protection of trees in the Parish which offer important amenity value, and in particular Monetary Pines which are a key feature in the landscape of St Mawes. Keith has obtained copies of the Tree Preservation Order’s (TPOs) for the Parish from Cornwall Council. (The order makes it an offence to cut down, uproot, prune, lop or damage the tree without first obtaining the Council’s consent.) However the plans are not fully up to date, also there are many trees that merit a TPO and do not have one. Keith asked the Parish Council if they would consider an exercise to update those covered by old TPOs which actually offer no protection to the roots of the trees, only what is above ground, and to protect trees, not already covered by TPOs. This work would also require identifying trees coming to the end of their lives and replacing them with new trees.

4. Confirmation of the minutes of the Parish Council Meeting held on 6th August 2012.
The Council RESOLVED, by a show of hands, that the previously circulated minutes be approved and they were duly signed by the Chairman.

5. Matters arising from the Minutes not on the Agenda.

a) Support for the Allotment project
The National Trust are funding the infrastructure for the new access and the St Mawes Allotment Society will raise their own funds for fencing, water supply and ground preparation and also provide their own labour.

b) Notice board in Polvarth Road – in hand.

The Chairman consulted with Councillors to allow standing orders to be suspended in order to bring forward item 7.

7. Report from Devon and Cornwall Constabulary
During August there were 13 calls regarding the Parish. 11 crimes of thefts have been recorded, and all relate to marine equipment being taken from boats moored in the surrounding area. P. C Duckworth confirmed that the 101 number is now in use to be put through to the local police station, he also urged that, if anyone knows of a crime, then to report by telephoning 999 as it is happening. Chief Superintendent James Pearce will be attending a cluster meeting at Veryan Parish Hall on Tuesday 9th October at 7pm, and he will give an update as to the plans for Tregony Police station and the level of police cover that will be provided.

6. Report from the Clerk
The Clerk advised that a complaint was received regarding the height of the weeds outside of Rosedene, Trethewell. The weeds have been cut back and the area from Venton Gassick to Trethewell pull in, has been added to Cornwall Council’s weed spraying map. This may increase the Contractor’s cost slightly in the future.

The Clerk confirmed that the next Truro and Roseland Community Network meeting is to be held on Tuesday 25th September at New County Hall at 7pm.

8. Report from Cornwall Cllr. German – no report.

The Chairman consulted with Councillors to allow standing orders to be suspended in order to bring forward item 11g.

11. Planning
g) To consider undertaking the completion of the Tree Preservation Project.
The Parish Council considered the comments made by Keith Fisher and agreed the importance of TPOs, however it recognised that it will be a very time consuming exercise for the Parish to undertake. G Chenoweth proposed that the Clerk request an up to date plan of TPOs within the Parish from Cornwall Council, and that future work regarding TPO’s are part of the Roseland Neighbourhood Plan.

section 14 of the Audit Commission Act 1998 on the parish notice board.

c) To consider the quotation for winter planting in the ten tubs outside the Arcade, the Public Conveniences

This was put in abeyance until the October meeting.

d) To consider the recipient of the £14 received from St Mawes Co Partnership
Cllr. Salter proposed that the money is donated to the Golden Age Club seconded by G Chenoweth. All in favour.

C Pridmore has requested that this matter be put in abeyance until the October meeting so that the Recreation

11. Planning
a) To consider the meetings of the Planning Committee held in the period 9th May to 8th May. No
meetings held in the period 7th August to the 2nd September.

b) The Council considered the following planning applications:
18. 07480 14 Pedn Moran, St Mawes. Removal of a Montery Cypress.Reviewed by Cllrs. Chart, Giles and Salter. No objections.

19. 07373 Cockleshell and The Crag, Castle Drive. Crown reduction and topping of 6 Pine Trees and thinning of 9 Pine Trees. Withdrawn as Forestry Officer visited site and the trees in the application were planted

30 or 40 years ago, the TPO was made in 1960, therefore the trees do not fall under the TPO and do not need permission for above works to be carried out.

20. 07230 Bar Point, St Just in Roseland. Extensions (inc dormer extensions & alterations to dwelling).Reviewed by Cllrs. Teague, Warren and G. Chenoweth. All object for the following reasons.The West elevation facing the sea will have excessive glazing, it will be seen from sea and can cause a big reflection problem, also it is not in keeping with the existing 1930s Arts and Craft style property, at present the property has a hipped roof and the addition of gable ends is out of keeping within the area both from views from the water and public footpaths, and will make it look like it has been attached to Bar Point. The single pane full height french doors contrast with the original Crittal windows and serve to accentuate the new gable ended extension. The removal of the trees on the Eastern boundary would totally change the street scene to the detriment of this AONB. The enlarged North East wing appears as a separate dwelling. The overall effect is a dominance of the extension and associated glazing detracting from the distinctive styling of this prominent Arts and Craft Style waterfront home.
Cornwall Cllr. German will discuss with Planning Officer.

21. 07481 22 Percuil View, St Mawes. Proposed two storey dwelling. Reviewed by Cllrs. Chart, Giles and Salter. 1 support and 2 no objections although concerns were raised in relation to over-parking.

Following the receipt of concerns from the Council’s Tree Officer, the Highways Officer, the Parish Council and local residents (plus the School) the Planning Officer has advised the agent that the current application cannot be supported and will be recommended for refusal. The application may now be withdrawn with a view to producing an amended scheme in an attempt to address the areas of concern and objections that have been identified so far.

06372 Flat 1, Parkhouse, Bohella Rd, St Mawes, alterations for the conversion of two flats into two townhouses. Approved.

06948 The Little House, Windmill Hill, St Just in Roseland, amendment to PA12/04858 – replacement rear extension with balcony above. Approved.

Warren suggested that the Parish Council employ a surveyor to appraise the block to confirm that it is in a fit state of repair. Cllr. Giles proposed that the Clerk requests a quote for this work from Richard Holbrook a structural engineer, seconded by Cllr. Farmiloe. All in favour. RESOLVED by the Council.

17. Affordable Homes in the Parish of St Just in Roseland
a) To consider steps to move the initiative forward
The Clerk will contact Cornwall Council to reiterate that the preferred location for Affordable Homes is in St Mawes, as there is an infrastructure to support new development such as employment, school, & local services as opposed to St Just in Roseland. There are three sites in St Mawes, two of which have stalled and no progress is being made. The Land West of Polvarth Road, has a group of nine landowners who have employed a planning consultant. The Clerk will discuss this site with Cornwall Council, and request that they move this forward by engaging with the landowners and developers and including the Parish Council in their discussions.

b) To consider the new initatives on Affordable Housing proposed by Government.
A recent news story debated whether all new build development should provide affordable homes which is currently delivered through Section 106 agreements, and is a legal obligation. It is argued that this reduces the profits from development and is slowing down economic growth. It is proposed that Local Authorities reduce their affordable housing requirements in favour of market rented housing. This follows a proposal set out in the
Government’s Housing Strategy to allow reconsideration of Section 106 agreements that were made during the housing boom, so that the Local Authorities can renegotiate the terms. The consultation for this will close on 8
October 2012. However, no changes in legislation have been made as yet, and as the Parish is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, in order for development to be approved it must demonstrate a need, and great weight is attached to affordable homes for local people. Cornwall Cllr. German explained that if the proposals are adopted, then it will be at the Local Authorities discretion, and he confirmed that affordable housing remains a top priority for Cornwall Council.

18. The Square, St Mawes
To consider refurbishing the triangle in The Square and install new public seating in the centre of St Mawes
Cllr. Salter proposed that this item be deferred until next year due to the amount of expenditure already forecast for this year, seconded by Cllr. Giles. All in favour. RESOLVED by the Council.

19. Timing of Triathlons
To consider the arrangements, publicity and risk assessments for the timing of Triathlons through the Parish. The Council agreed for the Clerk to will write to the organisers and explain the problems experienced due to lack of marshals and cyclists breaking speed limits when in the village, and that the busy holiday season is inappropriate for such an event due to the increase of traffic and pedestrians.

20. Cornish Rowing Challenge
Cllr. Farmiloe proposed that the Parish Council provide additional marshals and fund two portaloos to be situated at St Mawes Castle, seconded by Cllr. Warren. All in favour. RESOLVED by the Council.

21. Cornwall Council Consultation – Charging Framework for Traffic Management at Community and
Other events
This item was deferred until the next Parish Council meeting.

22. Cornwall Council – Proposed Procedure of Devolution and Asset Transfer for Local Councils
To consider a response to the proposal by 1st October 2012.
The Clerk will respond and say that it was very satisfactory.

23. Registration of the Permissive Path to Recreation Ground with the Land Registry.
To consider the following options

3. Open Period – Public Participation – Sian Scott from St Mawes Allotment Society gave an update regarding the allotments. She was delighted to report that the two acre site owned by the National Trust (off the lane towards the sewage works on Upper Castle Road) has been secured. Plots will be available from 1st September and there will be between 32-36 plots, a full size plot being 200 square metres and a half size plot being 100 square metres. 24 plots are reserved. There will be flexibility to expand. They have funding in place for the rabbit proof fencing, preparation of the soil, erection of sheds and for bringing water onto the site, this work will be carried out by the Allotment Society members. The National Trust will extend the mains water supply to the site. However access is a problem, people will be able to enter the site by foot but will not be able to drive onto the site. It is estimated that it will cost between £8,000 to £12,000 to create a new access track and parking area, the Allotment Society do not hold a budget for this and will need to fundraise.

8. Report from Cornwall Councillor
Cornwall Cllr. German informed the Parish Council that Chief Superintendent Pearce is hoping to have a cluster meeting in October to give reassurance about Tregony Police Station and the level of cover that will remain.

Cornwall Cllr. German also reported that the other Parishes in Roseland namely Veryan, Ruan Lanihorne, Philleigh and Gerrans are keen to develop a Roseland wide Neighbourhood Plan, and he suggested that a public meeting is held in October to involve the wider community and gather support.

9. Report from Councillors as representatives of other Committee
The Clerk reported that no Councillor was available to attend the Truro and the RoselandCommunity Network meeting on 24th July, however copies of the informal notes of the meeting have been circulated to Councillors.

Cllr. Teague – St Just Institute

Cllr. Salter left the meeting as declared a non pecuniary interest in item 19 that was bought forward.

19.Allotments
The request made by Sian Scott on behalf of the St Mawes Allotment Society for the Parish Council to give a grant or loan for the access road to be built was considered. The cost of the access road is likely to be between £8,000 and £12,000. It was recommended that the request goes to the Finance Committee for consideration. The Assistant Clerk will also assist with finding alternative sources of funding.

Cllr. Salter returned to the meeting.

15. Affordable Homes in the parish of St Just in Roseland.
The Parish Council completed a housing needs survey in October 2011 to determine the level of housing need, after which Cornwall Council identified several sites that could be developed for affordable housing within the Parish.

Cornwall Council provided a recent update as to the viability of these sites:

Land Opposite Larkfield Rise in St Mawes: the landowners are considering their options for the land, potential delivery is uncertain.

Land West of Polvarth Road, St Mawes: though not a community favoured site (albeit not opposed either), may be a feasible alternative/ addition to Larkfield Rise site, discussion is ongoing with the individual plot holders, potential delivery medium to long term, site assembly and reaching consensus being the main issues.

Land rear of Harbour View, St Just: clear feedback from the landowner’s agent that a modest scale affordable housing led scheme is not favoured for that site, landowner’s preference would be a larger scale mixed use scheme. Probably safe to say the land is not coming forward at this time.

Land to the rear of The Bowling Green, St Just: CSA Architects is progressing well with a scheme for the site and consider that they will be able to establish a safe pedestrian link and vehicle access. Ecology survey currently underway, they aim to submit a planning application in October/November 2012 for a 21 unit scheme made up of 14 affordable homes and 7 open market dwellings. Cornwall Council are encouraging the applicant to return to the Parish Council to present their scheme for feedback prior to submission.

The Chairman consulted with Councillors to allow standing orders to be suspended in order to allow a member of the public to speak.

A member of the public in attendance expressed views that the site at the Bowling Green is totally inadequate, as the infrastructure does not support the development, and there are no amenities within the village, which will increase the need to travel, therefore it is not sustainable. If a development that size goes ahead it should be in St Mawes, where there is employment, shops and services.

Cllr. Warren felt that an extraordinary meeting should be held to discuss planning options to deliver affordable housing, and to engage with the community. Interested parties will be invited to present their proposal and members of the community shall be asked to attend and give their views.

10. Account and Finance

b) The Council considered the following planning applications:
12. Land at Freshwater Lane – pre-application, erection of a dwelling and detached garage, boathouse. Reviewed by the Planning Committee. No objections in principle. Cllr Warren feels that the garage/boathouse is not appropriately subservient to the main dwelling. St Mawes & St Just in Roseland Society objected to the blue bricks and cedar as not in keeping with area and the garage/boathouse at nearly 18.5 metres is viewed as excessively massive and too high.

Cllr. Giles, the chairman of the Car Park Committee, advised that the committee are looking into the relocation of the garage and storage for the cleansing operative vehicle.

The Clerk advised that Cornwall Council property services have consented in principle to the construction of a garage in car park.

The Clerk reported that two surveyors from Cormac Consultancy assessed the crack in the boundary wall in the car park and advised that the Budlia be removed immediately as the roots and weight of the bush is damaging the wall. Mr Badcock arranged for the Budlia to be removed and advised that his builder is pinning the wall.

14. Public Toilets
a) To further consider the future financing of St Just Church Public Conveniences
Cllr. Warren reported on the recent meeting held with interested parties from the Parish Council, Cornwall Council and the St Just PCC. There is a great willingness to have this devolved to Local Council responsibility provided that the toilets have been maintained properly and that the Parish Council are taking on an asset and not a liability, Cllr. Warren suggested that the Parish Council employ a surveyor to look at this block to confirm that it is in fit state of repair. The Parish Council and the PCC must agree measures to determine the income from the car park. The Clerk has received copies of leases dated 12th April 1061 and 16th March 1973 between the Church Commissioners, representative of the late George Johnstone and Truro Rural District Council. Cornwall Council is proposing to transfer two leases relating to the Public Conveniences from Cornwall Council to St Just in Roseland Parish Council.

b) To consider the future financing of the cleansing costs of St Mawes Public Conveniences

to make it more attractive.

Cllr. Salter proposed no action, seconded by Cllr. Giles. All in favour. RESOLVED by the Council.

20. Access for wheelchair users in St Mawes
To consider installing dropped kerbs to the pavements along Kings Road for wheelchair access.

An amendment was made to previous minutes which deleted Annual Meeting in the title and replaced with Meeting. The Council RESOLVED, by a show of hands, that the previously circulated minutes be approved and they were duly signed by the Chairman.

5. Matters arising from the Minutes not on the Agenda

a) Code of Conduct for Parish Councils
The Cornwall Code of Conduct for Town and Parish Councils (interim) does not fully explain the dispensations that allow members to speak and take part in debate if they have declared an interest in an agenda item. An SLCC briefing paper defines the dispensations, which are quite broad. A proposal has been prepared for review by the Personnel Committee that describes the dispensations and suggests how amendments might be made to standing orders to cater for circumstances where the Council feels that it might be appropriate that a Councillor be allowed to speak. The Chairman Cllr. Warren explained the new protocol for non pecuniary and pecuniary interests.

b) Pipe from Place View to the car park
Luke Dunstone does not have time to repair the pipe. The Clerk will ask Dave Chenoweth. Cllr R. Giles agreed to meet Dave Chenoweth on site.

Archive matters – outstanding matters
a) Registration of the Permissive Path to Recreation Ground with Land Registry
The Clerk confirmed that this is in hand.
b) Notice board in Polvarth Road.
The Clerk confirmed that this is in hand.
c) Upgrade of street lighting to Cornwall Council standards.
J Lanstbery of Cornwall Council has confirmed that Cornwall Council will be taking over the responsibility of the street lighting in the Parish from 1st July. John Fish of Western Power will liaise with Cornwall Council and arrange to take on the EDF energy supply from 30th June 2012.

6. Report from the Clerk
The Clerk received an email detailing a press release regarding the Tregony Police Station relocation. To improve service delivery, a better and more fit for purpose police premises is being located in Truro. Although these premises are not yet secured, they will allow a more efficient operational base and better contact with the public. Both Truro Police Station (Tregolls Road) and Tregony Police Station have been identified as inefficient, not suitable for modern policing needs and approved for disposal – although neither have yet been sold. Devon and Cornwall Police intend to purchase a new Police Station for Truro and are looking for a new physical base in Tregony, ideally co-located with a public sector partner. The stations will not close until the new facilities become operational and the police will remain in their current numbers on the Roseland using the existing Tregony station until a suitable alternative has been found and equipped. No decision has been made to change either the numbers of officers working out of the future premises or how the area is policed because “neighbourhood policing” (along with other aspects of the whole force) is under an ongoing review and there has been cuts in central funding. Cornwall Cllr. German said that he will invite the Chief Superintendent to the next Parish meeting to discuss how Tregony will be manned in the future.

The Clerk received an email from a member of the public concerning dog bins in Tredenham Road. Cllr R. Giles asked that this be put as an agenda item at next meeting, this was agreed.

The Clerk of the House of Commons meets Cornwall Youth Parliament at County Hall on Wednesday 25th July 11.30 – 1pm. The event is free and open to all, however there is limited booking.

A thank you letter was read from Sue Batkin, the previous Assistant Clerk.

7. Report from Devon and Cornwall Constabulary – no report

8. Report from Cornwall Councillor
Cornwall Cllr. German recently attended the Local Government Association conference and informed the Parish Council that the same pattern of cuts is replicated in the next Public Spending Review, with a predicted figure of a 50% cut to the revenue available for public services over a 4 year period, thus affecting the delivery of the existing service offer by Local Authorities and Police. He expressed that there has been difficult times and difficult decisions and this is likely to carry on.

The hand over of the lights will save the Parish Council time and money. Cornwall Council will contact the Parish in the autumn regarding usage, as the lights will be internet connected and will be able to vary times to when lights are needed, thus saving money.

Cornwall Cllr. German confirmed that the Highway works have started, and he was pleased to see that there have been no recent problems with bin collections, the new changes to the bin collections have saved Cornwall Council three million pounds, and the new changes have also increased the amount people recycle.

9. Report from Councillors as representatives of other Committee

Cllr. Teague – St Just Institute
Cllr. Teague reported that they have just had an extraordinary meeting as they had to alter arrangements for the fete. They have moved the event from Friday 27th June to Sunday 29th July. The event on Sunday will be a much bigger event than was previously planned for Friday.

Cllr. Baylis informed the Parish Council that Ofsted have made changes to the way they assess schools and give markings, making the process more rigorous. St Mawes School have recently been visited by Ofsted and were given Good on their report. Compared to their previous report which was Outstanding, the marking does not reflect the fact that St Mawes School have actually improved in every area.

Cllr. Warren – Roseland Cluster Meeting
Cllr. Warren spoke about the recent meeting attended by four of the five Roseland parishes and also attended by guest speakers from Rame who are one of the front runners in developing a neighbourhood plan, also in attendance were Cornwall Council representatives and Cornwall Cllr. German. Rame peninsula is made up of six parishes, and they have come together to make a Neighbourhood Plan. This is because the parishes had common goals and areas of shared interests including the main infrastructures. Cllr. Warren reiterated that the Neighbourhood Plan is very much a community document and would like community engagement to be intrinsic in developing the Plan. It was agreed that Neighbourhood planning is to be on the next agenda, so that the Parish Council can decide if the Neighbourhood Plan is to be Roseland wide or just the local Parish.

Cllr. Williams would like to include the St Just in Roseland proposed housing development on the next agenda. Cornwall Cllr. German will invite Nick Marsden from Cornwall Council Affordable Housing team.

The Clerk reported that there have been recent problems with motor bikes parking in car parking bays
and receiving fixed penalties. The fee paying sign states that parking is free for motor bikes but does
not state parking must be in designated area. The Clerk has discussed the issue with Ken Polmounter,
Parking Services who has agreed to ask CEOs to refrain from issuing fixed penalties for motorbikes
until the sign has been amended.

The Car Park Committee agreed to hold a meeting on Sunday 22nd July commencing at 11am.

14. Public Toilets

a) To further consider the future financing of St Just Church Public Conveniences
The Clerk received an email from Scott Sharples of Cornwall Council who suggested a meeting.

b) To consider the future financing of the cleansing costs of St Mawes Public Conveniences
The Parish Council will make a resolution at the next meeting.

15. Dates of monthly Parish Council meetings
Presently we have notified parishioners that the Parish Council meeting will take place on the first
Monday of every month, and if there is a Bank Holiday it will be the second Monday of the month.
Cllr. Baylis would prefer more options when to choose a meeting as this has resulted in a 3 week gap
between June and July, and a 5 week gap between July and August. The Clerk confirmed that standing
orders allow the change of meetings dates, and we can make revisions to notified meetings to prevent
this happening again.

16. To consider a request from a member of the public concerning cars obstructing access to
Property in Buckley’s Lane.
The request was for Cornwall Council to put yellow lines over a small section of road, as cars
repeatedly block their driveway. Cornwall Cllr. German advised that obstructing a driveway is a Police
issue and that the owners should contact the Police at the time of the offence.

17. Correspondence (information only). There were no matters arising.

18. Staffing Matters
