Gwennap Parish Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) Referendum Postponement

We are very disappointed to announce that the Gwennap Parish NDP Referendum has had to be postponed. A discrepancy has been identified between the report signed by the Cornwall Council Portfolio Holder for Culture, Economy and Planning and the content of a map in the NDP. Gwennap Parish Council, and the NDP Steering Group, will work with Cornwall Council to align the two. A new date for the referendum will be arranged for January 2020.

Parish Council Chairman Resigns

After 12 years on the Parish Council, ten of which as Chair, Councillor Kevin Furnish has decided to resign from the Parish Council and to let someone else take the helm. Parish Councillors are volunteers, and many of you will be aware of how hard Kevin has worked for the Parish Council, especially over the last 3 years on the Gwennap Parish Neighbourhood Development Plan, during which Kevin has dedicated a vast amount of his time. The Councillors and I would like to express our sincere thanks to Kevin for everything that he has done and achieved over his 12 years on the Parish Council – we have been extremely lucky to have such a dedicated, focused and driven Chair and we wish you every happiness in your retirement Kevin.

Following receipt of Kevin's resignation, the Parish Council held an Extra Ordinary Meeting on 25th July, and unanimously resolved to elect Councillor Sue Patton as the Chair of Gwennap Parish Council. Sue lives in Frogpool with her husband, she joined the Parish Council in January 2017 and she is delighted to have now been elected Chair and to have the opportunity to lead the Parish Council in the best way she can. Councillor Gregory Leach continues as our Vice Chair. The next meeting of the Parish Council will be on 15th August which will have a reduced agenda of planning applications and urgent business only; the next 'full' agenda meeting will be on 19th September.

Kevin's resignation from the Parish Council leaves the Parish Council with a vacancy. If you would be interested in becoming a Parish Councillor, please email me on clerk@gwennap-parish.net, with a little detail about yourself and why you would like to join the Parish Council.

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.
