  • Report back Sessions

Report back sessions on the survey have been booked for Goonhavern on Tuesday 15th October, and at Perranporth on Wednesday 16th October, 2019.

9       Reports from Focus Groups

Housing and Open space (Roger Kayes

Roger reported that the planned meeting with Tim Marsh (to be arranged by Michael Callan) had not yet taken place.

A recent planning appeal decision in Wadebridge suggests that the Government is putting greater weight upon the contents of local NDPs that have not yet passed the referendum.  At the end of June, the planning inspector upheld Cornwall Council’s refusal of an application for 225 houses on the edge of the town, specifically on the grounds that the application would prevent the local community deciding what it wanted to happen on that land.  The NDP has been through community-wide consultation immediately before submission to CC, but issues raised during that consultation haven’t yet been agreed to enable it to proceed to the next stage.

Roger reported that he is still to convene a meeting with a volunteer who has offered to show interested members of the NDP team to learn how to use ‘QGIS’.  Having access to a functioning Geographical Information System will be very useful in preparing maps for the NDP.


No report this month.

Environment and Heritage

Four members were present for the meeting on 3rd July and it was decided that the deadline for the completion of all previously allotted assessment and photo files will be Thursday 15th August. Any lack of coverage will be assessed and rectified after this date. Next meeting is to take place in early September. Chris agreed to produce and circulate via social media a ‘what do we love about Perranzabuloe’ form to engage local children in the LLCA process.

CAZ is arranging a competition to get children involved with the LLCA.  It has been agreed to offer prizes of £10 & £5 for winners (proposed by Rory, seconded by Phil Henwood).

10    Financial Matters

William produced a draft of expenses to date, and estimates for the future expenditure of the project.

Andrew Bown will take over the running of finances from William.

The SG is paying a monthly rate to Survey Monkey in order that the results can be processed.  Rory reported that this will be more cost effective that paying an annual fee.

Rory will cancel the contract for the unique phone line, given that hardly any members of the community made use of it during our survey.

11    Any other Business

Rory has been approached by a planner from ‘Origin 3-a Bristol based planning and urban design consultancy. He understands that he is working with land owners / development re Tregothan Estates.  Rory aims to arrange a meeting with him (with Roger) when he is in the area.

William produced a provisional draft estimate for the total cost of the NDP- See appendix A
