The Plan continues its progress towards the Referendum. By the time you read this, the Examination will be about to start.
Just as when The Plan was being developed, the implementation phase is very dependent on volunteers. One such is Caroline Coldwell from Treworthal in the Parish of Philleigh who took part in and edited the Local Landscape Character Assessment, an important part of The Plan.
Caroline is a retired lawyer who, with her husband David, moved to the Roseland from Cheltenham. She has a degree in geography and enjoys walking the Roseland, gardening, reading and sewing. Friends have described her as being brilliantly organised, diplomatic and someone who gets things done, all with a sense of humour. She will need all of those skills to work on the Conservation Area Assessment and Management Plan.
The first objective in this project is to photograph every property in one of the Roseland Conservation Areas (as a pilot) and to make notes/drawings of the features of each, creating a snapshot of what makes the Roseland unique today. When the pilot approach has been proven, it will be rolled out to the other Conservation Areas.
To be able to vote in the referendum (and other local elections), you need to be on the Electoral Roll. If you are not currently on the Electoral Roll, and wish to find out whether you meet the qualifying criteria, please contact Cornwall Council Electoral Services Office (01209 614373).
Next Steering Group Meeting: this will be held at 7 pm on Wednesday 15th April at the Millenium Rooms, St Mawes. Members of the public are welcome to attend.
