Call for land notice

One of the delivery objectives of the Gwennap Parish Neighbourhood Development Plan is to deliver truly affordable housing in perpetuity in our parish. The Gwennap Parish Housing Working Group have formed and are working with Cornwall Community Land Trust to deliver this. They are seeking land that might be suitable for such a development and I hereby attach a Call For Land Notice. Suitable land sites can be Gifted to the parish to help create affordable homes for local people in perpetuity, or it may be possible to receive a multiple of the current agricultural land value - the established value for rural "exceptions" land values (more advice available from CCLT on request). Further information included on the below Notice.

20 is Plenty

Councillor Furnish was pleased to attend Celebration Assembly at Cusgarne Primary School last week to announce the winners of the speed awareness poster competition. Seven winning designs were chosen which have been professionally printed onto road side signs that will be put up around the parish to encourage and remind everyone to slow down and drive carefully. There were so many fantastic designs, the Parish Councillors found it very hard to choose, so well done to all the children!

Fly tipping

Fly tipping is a real problem in and around Gwennap Parish. If there is an unsightly mess tipped in an area near you, phone Cornwall Council on 0300 1234141. This is a number specifically for fly tipping. They will want to know what sort of rubbish it is, and the exact location, so a road name, post code or distance from a known landmark will help.
