4 Communications update
Public meetings discussion
The programme prescribed for the developing, printing and distribution of the flyers was achieved. The public meetings attracted a total in excess of 160. 130 filled in the forms to sign up to the NDP, and hopefully assist in its production. The meetings have been regarded as a success, producing much discussion throughout the Parish.
Social Media Co-ordinator
Philip Henwood and Chris Ashby-Zwozdiak have volunteered to coordinate the social media for the NDP.
- Action Point – PH/CA-Z
RJ has created a database of names details and preferences on ‘Mailchimp’
5 Reports from Focus Groups
No reports were received from Focus Groups. The Groups are tasked for meeting up (including new people who expressed interest at the public meetings), and preparing to report at the next SG. It was agreed that reports would focus on substantive, on-the-ground issues that they believed could go into the NDP and achieve benefit for the community.
- Action Point – RK/KH/CA-Z
6 Project planning
The SG aims to be able to send out the questionnaire to all residents of Perranzabuloe before Easter 2019
7 Financial matters
A grant of £4,000 has been received from ‘Localities’ to cover the cost of production and distribution of the first flyer
8 Adoption and Dismissal of Group Members
A method of adoption of new SG & FG members should be put into practice. Roger Kayes was to confirm any statutory limit on the size of the Steering Group (SG), but it was felt it should not exceed 15 to 20.
Anybody wishing to join the SG should attend 2 or 3 SG meetings to confirm that it’s what they expect and that they still wish to be a part of the central team. If they still want to join the SG, they should then get an existing member of the Steering Group to propose them as well as a seconder. This will then be put to a vote of the existing SG. It was suggested by RJ that SG members who miss more than 3 out of 4 meetings should be contacted to determine what were their long term plans regarding the group.
Prospective new members should be directed to the documents page of the www.perranplan.co.uk Website which includes links to more information on NDP’s, including other Cornwall NDP’s and NDP examiners reports.
Membership of the Focus Groups will be down to the heads of the Focus Groups and escalated to the SG if needed.
- Action Point – RK/KH/CA-Z
The terms of Reference for the NDP shall be revised to reflect these decisions.

9 Any other business
Questions were asked regarding the school requirements of the Parish. It was explained that this was outside of the NDP’s remit. However land can be identified for educational needs- Similarly land can be identified or other needs (e.g. Health Centres)
It was agreed that all members of the Steering Group and Focus Groups would write up a brief introduction about themselves and yes/no answer to some interest questions. These write ups would be placed upon the web site..William Rogers would prepare this in relation to property development interests, but also to confirm that the person lives +or works in the parish. The introduction and standard question responses will be put on the Website and a record kept by our NDP secretary
By way of example, Rory Jenkins has written up his introduction (see appendix 2)

Appendix 2- Rory Jenkin’s Personal Introduction
I live, with my wife and young kids, in our Perranporth (Droskyn) property. We Air B&B rent out a self-contained section of our property. I mostly work from home, for a company that builds and maintains Websites for their client base. Ever since I moved to Perranporth in 2005 I’ve seen the village and wider parish evolving in a way that I often feel doesn’t reflect the wishes and ambitions of those who live and work here. There is a strong need for housing provision, in particular for those just starting out, that I feel needs more balance with the evolving and not evolving capacity of what is here. For example the sewage and drainage system, green spaces, the natural environment, employment and business opportunities. I’m also a relatively recent parent to twins, where I’m concerned about the level of local schools and other facilities for younger people.
