Do you recognise these dogs? We received an email form the person that took the photo below and they would like the owner of the dogs to have it!

The photographer says:-
Dear Sirs

Back in February this year a young lady used to walk her dogs across the railway footbridge near Willington, Derbyshire and used to offer a pleasant chat in between me taking photographs of the trains.

I took the attached photo of her two dogs taking interest in the passing trains and had hoped to give a copy of the picture to her the next time she came along.

Unfortunately I understand she had returned to Hayle so never managed to let her see the picture.

I have been present on the footbridge many times since but this lady has not since returned.

Would there be any possibility please that you may have any means of publish a copy of this picture please, without charge, in hope that it may reach the dog walker concerned.

Regards

Amendment to tomorrow evening's agenda:- Planning Application Number PA15/04394 Cranford (Hayle) Ltd has been deferred.

The Town Clerk has decided that this application will be pulled from Thursday's agenda.

HTC was originally given the deadline by Cornwall Council of responding by 3rd June 2015 but this was extended to 19 June 2015 following a request from us. It now seems that Cornwall Council's Strategic Committee will not be considering the application till September so we have more time to consider it and, hopefully, the Walkers application, which is anticipated shortly. This should allow enough time for more of the consultee responses to be submitted and for Councillors to be fully informed prior to taking a vote. It will also allow the Council to make proper arrangements, if required.

Watch this space. Please spread the word!!

UPDATE

At its Full Council meeting last night (21 May 2015), Hayle Town Council considered the new twin-track Linden Homes planning application PA15/02777 and resolved to object exactly as for PA14/09315 (see original below posted 5 March 2015) with the added grounds for objection:

1) the failure to demonstrate compliance with the ICOMOS/UNESCO World Heritage Committee’s draft decision: 39 COM 7B.86, especially (see point 7) that ‘details for…any substantial future projects in the [World Heritage Site] property or its immediate and wider setting be submitted, together with HIAs, to the World Heritage Centre as soon as possible, and that adequate time be allowed for a thorough review of each project by the Advisory Bodies prior to approval of any construction and development.’

2) not enough attention has been paid to the design of the buildings to reflect the nature of the town appropriately, nor with regard to the Cornwall Design Guide.

Cornwall Council, its reserves and why it needs them
www.cllrandrewwallis.co.uk
When it comes to setting a budget the issue of reserves comes up. It is used as a political football between the political groups at Cornwall Council and even the PM entered the foray by saying Cornwall Council is sitting on £200m worth of reserves, yet is cutting services. A face value, it does see…

Western Power Distribution - Less is More Community Award

The Council has just received confirmation of 2 significant financial awards to go towards the long term ambition of heating and covering the outdoor Swimming Pool.

The 'Less is More ' project was run by Western Power Distribution and was aimed at helping local communities reduce their electricity use, particularly at peak times, with the opportunity for a community asset or events to receive funding.

The areas or Tremorvah and Trelissick were selected to participate in the project and these communities decided that the Swimming Pool should be the beneficiary. The amounts of £4,315 and £3,994 respectively will shortly be with the Council and will be added to the growing fund to progress the scheme to upgrade the pool.

Thank you to everyone in the Tremorvah and Trelissick areas who participated in the scheme, we are so grateful! Thanks must also go to Western Power Distribution too for initiating this scheme. The dream of upgrading the pool is step closer!

Rural Community Energy Fund

The Town Council recently received a presentation regarding the Rural Community Energy Fund, which is a government grant that enables rural communities to pay for feasibility studies on renewables projects. It will support communities to develop renewable energy products which provide economic and social benefits to the community. An initial grant of up to £20,000 is available and this can cover technical feasibility, community engagement, legal structures, business planning and financial forecasting. The Council supports the scheme whole heartedly but it requires input from keen individuals/organisations to take forward and is wanting feedback to gauge whether or not there is sufficient support to progress. If there is enough support the Town Council will facilitate a meeting with a representative from the RCEF. So let us know your thoughts and whether or not you are willing to get involved!

Community Renewable Energy
Rural Community Energy Fund

What is community owned renewable energy?

Many communities are realising the benefits of locally owned renewable energy projects, for local benefit. Renewable energy has the ability to reduce energy use, grow the local economy, improve buildings and generate income for important community services. There is funding available at present to fully fund the development costs of community renewable energy projects.
Renewable energy is very good for the local economy. The majority of money spent on energy is lost from the local area, going almost entirely to the big six energy companies who supply our electricity and gas. If instead this money was paid to a local energy company, owned by local people, it could be recycled in the local area. The benefit of this additional injection of local spend would be increased due to the economic multiplier effect, meaning a stronger, healthier local economy.
Locally owned renewable energy also draws money into the local economy, because it attracts payments for the electricity and heat. Renewable technology also has the potential to save local organisations and businesses money by reducing their energy bills.
The renewable energy systems can be installed and maintained by local businesses, helping to grow the local economy, safeguarding jobs and incomes. The technology also has the potential to significantly reduce CO2 emissions and stimulate a reduction in overall energy use.

How does it work?

A community co-op is set up which invites people to buy shares, which raises capital. This capital is used to purchase and install the renewable energy systems. The co-op rents the space for the installations, maintains them and sells the energy to local community organisations or businesses at a discount.
The co-op pays the investors interest and they recoup their investment over time. Any profit can be distributed via a community fund to be used on local projects.
An example of a successful community renewable energy project that members of the Energy Analysis team have worked on is Plymouth Energy Community Renewables. This community owned renewable energy organisation has installed many sets of solar panels on local schools, providing them with cheaper electricity.

At the moment funding is available for community groups to carry out the feasibility and development work necessary for a renewable energy project(s). The fund can be used to cover the technical, financial, governance and community engagement elements needed to progress a project. It is an excellent way of helping communities to kick start and develop renewable projects.
A successful application to the RCEF simply requires a community organisation with a solid idea for a project and a determination to see it through to development. It is about community owned projects, for community benefit.
So if you would like to find out more about community renewable energy projects, or the Rural Community Energy Fund, then please get in touch.
