HOUSING – Report by Roger Kayes

  • There was no Focus Group meeting since that recorded in last SG meeting (12th March 2019).
  • RK, KH & WR attended a meeting with Imogen Day generally discussing the NDP
  • RK, WR and members of the PCC attended a ‘Meet the Planners’ presentation.  Perranzabuloe falls under Cornwall Council Area 4 .  The planners covering our parish are Tim Marsh and Glenn Lowe, under the leadership of Jeremy Content.  RK will arrange a meeting with these people.
  • RK raised for discussion the idea of exploring the merits of the allocation a large housing site in the NDP, against the background of several sources promoting the benefits to the community of such an approach. MC offered to arrange a meeting with Tim Marsh for an initial exploration of aspects of this option.  It was agreed that such an approach would, if adopted, carry the risk of rejection of the entire NDP at referendum stage, given the hostility within the parish to new large housing sites.

BETI- Report by Kevin Havill

See Appendix 1.

Environment & Heritage – Report by Chris Ashby-Zwozdiak

Two Local Landscape Characteristic Assessments (LLCA’s) have so far been completed, one for ‘The Girt in Perrancoombe, and the other at Callestick – both are examples of steep valley sides. Turn-out was good and Sue Dutson has collated the data collection forms into singe typed documents.

It was noted that Kathryn Statham, who fronts this initiative on behalf of Cornwall Council is prepared to undertake the work commercially on a Freelance basis.  Chris was asked to investigate this further, so that the SG can assess this, complete with indicative costing.

Chris and Sue intend to investigate involving the children at our local primary schools, Perranporth and Goonhavern with the LLCA process so that we can evidence participation and engagement with a wider demographic of the parish. This may well also aid participation and encourage greater uptake with the forthcoming survey.

A further meeting to decide where next to arrange LLCA’s will be arranged.

Questionnaire

The first draft of the Questionnaire is expected from the designers (Jeff Muir).  Comments have been received from various SG members, and some early corrections obtained.  These will be included in the draft, and then it will be sent to Phil Moore for a final independent check.  It is hoped to subsequently return these to Jeff Muir immediately after, so that these can be forwarded to the printer immediately after Easter.  Distribution to the parishioners is expected to be at the beginning of May.

All people who showed interest in the NDP will be asked by email to entice at least 5 of their friends to complete the form.

Additional forms and a deposit box will be available at Perranporth Sub-Post office; Londis Store, Goonhavern; Callestick Farm, and the Chiverton Arms.

Notices will be placed in shop windows, on notice boards around the Parish, as well as other visible locations.  It is possible that banners will be displayed in Perranporth.

WR will attempt to obtain another grant from ‘Localities’ to partially cover this exercise.

The initial idea of cream teas and ice creams for parishioners has been abandoned due to lack of people who can organise the day, and doubt about the number of people who would attend as well as doubts regarding its usefulness in getting more questionnaires completed.

7       Administration and Background Organisational Matters

None

8            Amendment of Terms of Reference and Declarations of Interests (DOI)

These were not discussed, but will form an early agenda item in the May SG meeting

9       Financial Matters

WR will attempt to get a grant from ‘Communities’ to cover the questionnaire and its distribution.

WR stated that money is available in the National Lotteries Community fund.  Thought must be given to future expenditure (eg help with Landscape Character assessment, and professional help (eg policy drafting).

10    Any other Business

None.

Appendix 1            Report from BETI

On 18th March BETI hosted a special meeting in conjunction with Douglas Boden and Patrick Polglase, officers from Cornwall Council who presented plans for the cycle network announced in a few weeks earlier. BETI had previously lobbied for -site money from the Highways England A30 Carland to Chiverton for cycle tracks. Highways England and Cornwall Council have allocated £19m for a system of four new cycle tracks including one from Perranporth to Newquay via Goonhavern. This track will link to others opening up a significant system. Design work is ongoing but the intention is to use as far as possible the old railway route diverting where necessary. The Camel Trail was quoted as the benchmark and Cornwall Council have the ambition that there will be significant health, recreation and economic benefits. We are asked by Cornwall Council to stay in contact and assist with design and routing input.

On the 3rd April at County Hall, Kevin Havill met Rebecca Cohen, the officer responsible for co-ordinating the OCSI reports at Cornwall Council and given the chance to check the underlying mapping data. Data is not collected on a parish basis but derived by merging that from smaller sub areas. It was possible to see that the current report accurately follows our parish boundary and is therefore reliable.

Oxford Consultants for Social Inclusion (OCSI) is a spin-out research consultancy from the Social Disadvantage Research Centre at the University of Oxford. Cornwall Council are subscribers to OCSI and we have been encouraged to make use of the OCSI findings. We commend all members of the steering and focus groups read this report as it is a useful analysis of the parish’s population, housing, health and work. It identifies issues we could seek to address.

Rebecca Cohen also has responsibilities for the group dealing with Health and Well-being matters. Further information regarding these issues is to be supplied by the council and BETI will include these within its area of interest co-opting members of the community to assist.

On 9th April the group met primarily to discuss the questionnaires and in particular the business one and to review the OCSI Insight report.

The objective of business questionnaire is that garner information to understand how the economy in Perranzabuloe works and be able to make provision to allow successful enterprises flourish in future. Moreover we are required to think about both the dormitory and working populations in Perranzabuloe.

Obtaining information about individual businesses located in the parish hasn’t been easy but matching the Valuation Office records against a listing of all post codes derived from the public questionnaire has produced more than anticipated a list of approx. 630 individual addresses. This of course doesn’t include people who are using their homes as workplaces .

It is requested that funding be allocated to enable the production, circulation and if necessary analysis of this questionnaire.  This is  likely to be in excess of £1000. A more precise costing will be made.

2. Business Questionnaire

  • Following the session with Stephen Horscroft, Counwall Council Economic
    Development Officer the questionnaire has been restructured to be more
    ‘tick box’. Also for the sake of ensuring anonymity the questionnaire has been
    split into two parts. The first recording the respondent and the second the
    detailed information. The two parts will be separated when the information
    is analysed.
  • Both sections and the covering letter reviewed as a group.
  • Agreed that postal responses shall be sought in the first hand and follow up
    calls made to business addresses that haven’t responded. Also ballot boxes at
    Perranporth Post Office, Perranzabuloe Parish Office and Goonhavern Post
    Office to be used.
  • Timing – agreed that the questionnaires will be sent out 1st September with a
    request for returns by 23rd September, thereafter personal calls will be
    made.
  • At the previous meeting it was agreed to break the parish into sectors and
    divide meeting individual businesses amongst each group. Not all BETI
    members present at the meeting so preliminary division suggested as
    follows:

    • Team One: Team Leaders Sharon and Jim Hewitt, assisted by Clive
      Stevens
      • Goonhavern
      • Callestick
      • Silverwell
      • Chiverton Cross
      • Perranwell

      • Central Perranporth
      • Cligga
      • Trevissome Park
    • Team Four: Team Leader Keith Everest
      • Holiday Parks

Given the anticipated volume of personal calls required it was agreed that the
various team leaders will co-opt other helpers as required

3. Other Recent Meetings

  • Cornwall Council Economic Officer, Stephen Horscroft. Issues to raised:
    • Draft Business questionnaire – this has been updated
    • Draft Policies – discussed and his input received

    • Employment use of land near Chiverton Cross and on the detrunked
      A30 – He will come back to us on this
    • Availability of European Structural Funds – Looking doubtful that we
      will qualify in time
  • KH had been invited to attend a presentation by Bill Grimsey to Cornwall
    Council regarding the regeneration of town centres and high streets. Main
    points:

    • High Streets are changing form and need to rely on more than just
      retail
    • Local leadership and marketing key
    • Biggest current threats are Brexit, Austerity, Business Rates and
      Amazon

RK brought up the issue which had raised emotions at his FG meeting in January – whether to include in the questionnaire a question about Permanent Residence Policy (Second Homes Policy).  He brought it to this SG for a decision but this was pushed to a future SG.

BETI- Report by Kevin Havill

The BETI Focus group has met twice already this year on 17th and 23rd January, attended in each case by over a dozen participants. This included several new members to the group willing to help take the agenda forward.

The task set has been to examine other completed NDPs and those in hand to lift policies that are considered to be of particular relevance to Perranzabuloe. Currently the main focus has been on the NDPs for St Agnes, Roche, Illogen, Bude, Chacewater and Newquay. It is accepted that there will also be the need for other parish specific issues to be covered but given that many of these parishes have issues similar to Perranzabuloe looking at their plans is seen as a good starting point.

The group are currently considering a large PowerPoint presentation of policies already ‘borrowed’ and will at the next meeting be asked confirm, add or cull items from this base group. Having identified the main issues they  will then be able to assemble questions for the forthcoming household questionnaire and others specifically targeted towards business and commercial enterprises.

Initial policy selection is due to be finished by mid February and questions formulated in March.

Minutes of the meetings have been posted on the ‘www.perranplan.co.uk’ website

Environment & Heritage- Report by Christine Ashby-Zwozdiak (CAZ)

The first meeting since the public meetings in November – had 8 new participants other than SG and existing members of group.

CAZ went over her meeting with Cornwall Wildlife Trust in conjunction with points made by Sarah Furley in order to provide areas of focus.  The group discussed local green space designation, SUDS, wildlife provision, and views and vistas.

Request was made for help with the heritage aspect and CAZ has secured the valued assistance of Ryan Smith who has since provided much material and insight.

Although the meeting was useful CAZ expressed her concern that uptake is very low, that it is heavily Perranporth centric, and that many participants have not read the necessary literature regarding policy making and gained the sort of understanding required for the next stage.

A huge amount of background reading is required here so that questionnaires are truly representative of what we wish to achieve, so rather than have another meeting, an explorative ‘homework task’ was set, via email, so that the FG has some solid material to work with at the subsequent meeting on Tuesday 12th Feb.

Local Landscape Character Assessment training is due to take place on Saturday 16th March 2019.

 

 

1.     Communication update

Questionnaire

 

WR (Will Rogers) produced a bar chart, indicating when actions would aim to be completed.  It was aimed to produce questions for forwarding to Sarah Furley by 6th March, allowing her one week to examine before going to print.  A copy of the proposed timetable accompanies these minutes.  It is hoped to organise the mail shot mid-April, with surveys returned in May.

 

It was proposed by Phil Moore (PM), seconded by RK, that WR as secretary has got the approval of the SG to appoint the appropriate person to produce the publications.  This was carried unanimously.  It was noted that Jeff Muir’s questionnaire when filled in online automatically go into ‘Survey Monkey’.  RJ reported that St Agnes is amenable to our cloning of their ‘Survey Monkey’.

 

On the basis of the four example questionnaires discussed, it was suggested by RJ that each FG does not propose more than ten questions, as a rule of thumb, or RK suggested 8 -12.

 

Many related issues were discussed.  CAZ was firm in the view that if we are going to include prizes to incentivise respondents, we should include prizes to attract different age groups.

 

It was agreed to hold a meeting on Wednesday 6th March to discuss the questions, prior to sending them to Sarah Furley.  This meeting would be in addition to the SG Meeting on 12th March, at which unresolved issues on the questionnaire would be considered.

 

2.    Administration and Background Organisational Matters

 

Support in the use of Mailchimp

 

RJ will organise for some coaching for SG members- date & time to be advised later. Mailchimp should be used for all group emails, ensuring that we are GDPR compliant.

 

Facebook Monitoring

 

A volunteer is needed to monitor the ‘Facebook‘ page.

 

Mapping

 

RK reported that he had done some work on mapping for the purposes of the NDP.  He advised that through the PC, we have access Ordnance Survey and associated data via the Public Service Mapping Agreement (PSMA).  Data downloads have to be handled through a GIS system, such as QGISI.  RK can advise further.

 

Declarations of Interests

It had been agreed that members should be requested to complete a ‘declaration of interests’, as a basis for keeping an eye on the balance in the SG between pro-development and pro-conservation members and conflicts of interest that might arise.  RK distributed a specimen document to the group, and this was discussed.  It was agreed that RK draw up a finished version of this document, adopting amendments suggested, for circulation to RJ for agreement, and then to members of the SG.

 

3.    Financial Matters

The principle of allowing a set sum of money per Focus Group for incidental expenditure was discussed, but not finalised.

The parish clerk will investigate cost of photocopying using PC copiers.

4.    Any other Business

No new issues raised

5.    Items for next meeting

    • Action Point – RJ

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

Other Issues

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.

  • Action Point – RK

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.
