A30 dualling between Carland Cross and Chiverton Cross on the agenda at the St Agnes and Perranporth Community Network Panel Meeting

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Mon, 10/09/2018 - 11:13

Come along and hear about Highways England’s plan for dualling the A30 at the St Agnes & Perranporth Community Network Panel on Thursday 13th September at 6.30pm in Perranzabuloe Parish Rooms, Perranporth.

 Highways England is the government owned body responsible for motorways and major A-roads, and they are the lead for the work to dual the A30 between Chiverton Cross and Carland Cross. They have regularly attended the panel meetings in the past, during the design and consultation phases and they will provide an update of the scheme following the latest public consultation.  The scheme will cost £192 million, with road works due to start in December 2019. It is currently the third most congested piece of A-road in the South West. The aim is to bring better transport links to Cornwall which in turn benefits the local economy. A subject many people feel passionate about.

The panel will also be discussing smaller scale schemes which parishes have submitted to Cornwall Council’s Community Network Highways Scheme for minor road improvements. This follows-on from the Council initiative, announced earlier this year which gives each Community Network Panel a budget of £50,000 a year to spend on their local highways scheme, part of the £1 million a year package to be spent on local transport priorities.

Ken Yeo of Perranzabuloe Parish Council and Chair of St Agnes & Perranporth Community Network Panel said: “This meeting is a really effective way of increasing local people’s involvement in developing their neighbourhood. We hope more residents, of all ages or backgrounds, can come along and have their say about what is happening in the St Agnes and Perranporth Community Network area.”

 The St Agnes & Perranporth Community Network Panel meets regularly to discuss matters that affect the local area and is a partnership between Cornwall Council, town and parish councils, the voluntary and community sector, the police, health services and most importantly, local residents.

St Agnes & Perranporth Community Network Panel includes the Cornwall Councillors for the area and representatives of the following parishes: St Agnes, Perranzubloe, Cubert, Crantock, St Newlyn East and St Allen.

The meeting is open to the public and all are welcome to attend. The agenda and more information about the panel is available here https://bit.ly/2Qbwgzm

Recycling rates are up as awareness grows and demand for bags hits record levels

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Mon, 10/09/2018 - 10:48

Recycling rates across Cornwall for the first quarter of 2018-19 are tracking ahead of target according to the latest data from Cornwall Council.

Recycling rates for the first quarter of the year are up by three percent – 42% against a target of 39%.

In the first six months of 2016, the Council received 10,295 requests for recycling bags. In the first six months of this year, the Council received 18,662 requests, an increase of over 80%.

Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Environment and Public Protection, Sue James, said the shift was likely attributed to a number of factors.

“In the last 12 months, we have seen Blue Planet heighten people’s awareness of the impact plastic is having on our environment. The plastic free movement is growing and we now have several towns in Cornwall working to be plastic free, as well as a commitment for the Council to be single-use plastic free by 2020.

“Recycling is now more prominent in people’s minds and we know our residents value Cornwall as a beautiful place to live. We expect that a combination of these factors has generated a massive surge in awareness and demand for recycling bags.

“We apologise for the delay in getting these bags out to residents, but we did not anticipate such a massive increase in orders. It’s an encouraging sign that we will be able to boost recycling rates across Cornwall and we ask for people to be patient.

"We are out delivering recycling bags to households who ordered them as fast as possible but this is taking some time. In the meantime the proper bags can be collected from one of the centres listed below.

“We will also publish further information on our website and in social media to keep people informed, but ask for patience as we deal with the backlog.”

The Council has been actively promoting different ways for people to recycle following a waste survey earlier this year where people said they wanted more information on what to recycle.

Recycling containment stocks can be collected from centres at Newquay, Redruth, Bude, Camborne, Camelford, Falmouth, Fowey, Launceston, Looe, Penzance, Saltash, St Austell, Torpoint and Liskeard. For addresses and opening hours please visit www.cornwall.gov.uk/council-and-democracy/contacting-the-council/one-stop-shops/

Unfortunately bags cannot be collected from Bodmin, Callington, Hayle, Helston, Penryn, St Ives, Truro or Wadebridge.

Councillors and staff apply for their tremengummyas at Lys Kernow

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Thu, 06/09/2018 - 12:55

Cornish Embassy

This Friday 07 September, Cornwall Councillors and staff will test their Cornishness and celebrate Cornish identity when the Cornish Embassy, or Tick Box Bus, visits Lys Kernow.

The bus, which featured on the Cornish leg of this year’s Man Engine Resurrection Tour and other events like the Royal Cornwall Show, was a huge hit with thousands of local residents and visitors getting on the bus to apply for their very own tremengummyas – that’s Cornish for passport.

The bus visit to Lys Kernow coincides with an all member briefing being webcast from 10am on 07 September.  

Will Coleman and Ian Saltern, members of the Council’s Cornish Minority Status Working Group, will raise awareness about the progress made since recognition of the Cornish under the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities in 2014.

Ian Saltern works with Azook an organisation committed to raising Cornish cultural awareness in education settings by reviewing the resources available to and required by teachers to support the promotion of Cornish culture. 

Will Coleman, director of Golden Tree Productions, creators of the Man Engine, will guide members through an electronic version of the Cornish citizenship test.

Talking about the visit, Will said: “In 2014 the Government recognised the Cornish as a ‘national minority’. What zackly does that mean? There is quite some debate about whether we should have a Cornish tick box on the next census. So…we’ve nabbed a double decker bus, created a Cornish Embassy upstairs, and we’re rockin’ up to Lys Kernow to open up the idea of what it means to be Cornish to the people in New County Hall.

The bus is a great way for people to think about the elements of our identity such as culture, language and heritage in an entertaining way. We want to demonstrate the distinctiveness of Cornish people and the unique ways in which we celebrate life and the things that matter.”

Both projects have been supported by Cornwall Council through funding allocated by the Cornish National Minority Working Group, with the bus donated by First Kernow.

Edward Rowe, aka Kernow King, is a member of the Working Group and will also be there on Friday to lend his support.

Cornwall Councillor and Chair of the Council's Cornish Minority Status Working Group, Jesse Foot, said: “This is part of our campaign to have the Cornish tick box on the next Census. Including a tick box on the 2021 Census will give the Cornish parity with the other Celtic nations, the Scottish, Welsh and Irish, who have their own tick boxes.  This means government and public bodies will have better information when making decisions.

“In the 2011 Census, 83,966 people in Britain ticked 'other' and physically wrote in 'Cornish' as their national identity. Within Cornwall the total was 73,220.  Thousands more would have done so if the option had been as straightforward as it is for the other nationalities. More than 50% of school children identified themselves as Cornish in an education survey conducted last year.

“This data sends a clear message to the Office for National Statistics that the people of Cornwall are willing, and should have the right, to self-identify as Cornish – whether by birth, ancestry, marriage or other means.  As well as campaigning for a tick box on the Census, our New Frontiers plan asks the Government to fulfil its obligations under the Framework Convention for National Minorities and to do the right thing by the Cornish, the Cornish language and Cornish culture.”

Member of Parliament for St Austell and Newquay Steve Double lent his support to the campaign with a visit to the bus at the Royal Cornwall Show and recently secured a debate in Parliament on the inclusion of a tick box on the Census.

If you haven’t been able to visit the  bus yet, you can also take the Cornish citizenship test online, declare your Cornishness and give your feedback before downloading your very own tremengummyas.

School safety a top priority as new parking rules come into effect

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Thu, 06/09/2018 - 11:23

Parents dropping their children off to class and stopping in their school’s ‘keep clear zone’ could face penalty notices as new tougher parking rules come into operation.

A new Traffic Regulation Order come into effect on Tuesday, September 4, making it an offence to stop or park on the markings at any time, even to drop off or pick up passengers.

The zones are marked off to keep the space outside of schools free from parked vehicles so that children can be seen more easily when crossing the road.

They also help to provide a clear field of vision for other vulnerable road users when they are crossing the road. 

From the start of the new school year, any vehicle parked on these markings may be issued with a Penalty Charge Notice of £70.

Cornwall Council and CORMAC has been working with schools, residents and local councillors across Cornwall over the last 18 months to review the existing zig-zag markings outside schools.

Geoff Brown, Portfolio Holder for Transport, said: “It is vital that we adhere to and enforce the no stopping zones outside our schools, as nothing is more important than the safety of our children.”

Many schools also work with the Council and Sustrans to encourage children to walk, scoot or cycle to school which helps further ease congestion around school gates.

Park and stride initiatives, where parents are encouraged to park in a suitable car park a short walks distance from the school, help to avoid congestion outside the school and enable children to walk to school, getting their daily exercise.

The Walking bus initiative also means that if a parent is unable to walk their child the rest of the way to school, a volunteer (a parent or member of school staff) can safely walk the children along a safe route to school.
