Food safety team working with food businesses across Cornwall to improve hygiene standards

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Tue, 26/09/2017 - 16:59

Residents and visitors can be confident that standards of food hygiene in restaurants and catering businesses across Cornwall are high according to the latest food safety enforcement report issued by the independent national Food Standards Agency (FSA). 

With Cornwall Council having responsibility for monitoring food safety at more than 8,652 food premises across Cornwall, 97% of premises are broadly compliant with food hygiene standards.

Food Safety Officers from Cornwall Council conduct programmed food hygiene inspections of all registered food premises and revisit to check that work has been carried out where necessary. This data is reported by the FSA annually.

Enforcement activity includes written warnings, improvement notices, formal cautions and, in a very few cases, prosecutions. The data in the FSA report shows there is a high level of compliance across most food premises following proactive work by Council staff.

In relation to food hygiene, in Cornwall:

  • 2,582 premises were issued with informal written notices about food hygiene - 98% complied
  • 27 premises were subject to formal enforcement actions with hygiene improvement notices issued
  • Three businesses’ voluntarily closed, and three were formally closed by use of an emergency prohibition notice.

In relation to food standards, 255 premises were issued with a written warning.  Warnings were for a variety of reasons, including premises where food was wrongly described as ‘Cornish’ on menus. This has led to the Council recently launching the ‘Product of Cornwall’ scheme, backed by Michelin starred Chef Paul Ainsworth, so that Cornish suppliers can get Cornwall Trading Standards to vet the origin of their produce and consumers can “look for the logo” and know that they are buying genuine Cornish produce.

Cornwall Council has actively prosecuted a small minority of premises for breaches of food hygiene or standards. There were four prosecutions for food hygiene breaches and two prosecutions for food standard breaches which were concluded during the period of the report.

The food hygiene offences involved issues which included poor food handling practices, structural noncompliance, food storage issues. evidence of possible rodent infestation and a lack of adequate documented training. The food standards prosecutions were both for substitution of spirits, where a more expensive branded spirit was substituted with a cheaper brand.

Stuart Benson, Assistant Head of Service in Neighbourhoods and Public Protection said: “Standards of food hygiene in Cornwall are good. We work proactively with businesses to improve food hygiene and standards.  Following an inspection, this means we can issue warnings which allow businesses to improve - in cases where businesses don’t do this, we can take more formal action, which occurs in a very small number of cases.

We’re also finding that customers are more aware and are contacting us more, which means that our food safety team can intervene earlier. Five star establishments can advertise the fact on their windows, which is an added selling point and provides consumer confidence.”

Publicity from prosecutions for food hygiene breaches has also raised both awareness and food standards, including the recent prosecution of the owners of a public house in Porthcothan Bay near Padstow which was fined a total of £7,655 for falling foul of hygiene offences.

Stuart adds: “More businesses are calling up for expert advice and we are able to provide greater support to the poorer performing establishments. Businesses can also access information on Business Regulatory Support with information ranging from how to obtain a five star hygiene rating to food management systems, labelling and health and safety advice.”

Parking charges to be reintroduced in Bodmin as improvement work nears completion

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Tue, 26/09/2017 - 16:58

Bodmin

After 12 months of free car parking while £7.5m of town improvements were underway, parking charges in Bodmin’s three town centre car parks are set to be reinstated from Sunday 1 October.

Following a successful bid to the Government’s Growth Deal fund, Cornwall Council and the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership has invested £7.5m in the Building a better Bodmin project which aims to improve traffic flows, make it safer for people walking and cycling in the area and provide a catalyst for the regeneration of the local economy.

While work has been underway, residents and visitors to the town have benefitted from free parking in Fore Street, Priory Road and Dennison Road. The free parking has been offered by both Cornwall Council and Bodmin Town Council since September 2016 to help promote the message of Bodmin being open for business during the nine month closure of Dennison Road, Church Square and much of Priory Road.

While the main traffic routes through Bodmin reopened on schedule in June, the car parks have remained free for a further three months to allow for a smooth transition.

Geoff Brown, Cornwall Council's Cabinet Member for Transport said: "A significant amount of money has been invested to improve the road network around the town centre for many groups of people – whether they be local residents, business owners or visitors. We have the low speed environment through Dennison Road to Church Square, the roundabout at the junction of Priory Road and Launceston Road and smaller improvements including a new Toucan crossing near Bodmin College.

“Now this work is complete, disruption to local businesses has reduced and parking charges will be reinstated.

“Income from Council car parks is used to fund vital services in Cornwall, including maintaining the 7,000 kilometres of road network we have responsibility for.”

Building a better Bodmin - the schemes which make up the project are:

Lower Bore Street to Midway Road shared use route

This section links Fore Street to Midway Road and the routes beyond. A shared use footway/cycleway has been created on Higher Bore Street from Lower Bore Street, narrowing the highway at Higher Bore Street and guiding cyclists onto the footway just before a newly installed toucan crossing, which replaces the previous pelican crossing.

The existing northern footway is now a shared use path to St Leonard's Terrace.

Camel Trail to Berrycoombe Road/Cardell Road

Southern footway widened for shared use surface to Cardell Road. Improvements have been made to the existing path and signage.

Cardell Road to Dennison Road

Improvements to the crossing point at the end of the off-road section at Cardell Road, with footway widening to rear of Sainsbury's haulage yard. New path created in haulage yard to Railway Terrace.

Dennison Rd, Church Square, Turf St and Crockwell Street

The flagship scheme for Building a better Bodmin project. Here the width of the carriageway has been reduced and the surface reinstated with coloured surfacing and paving to the edges. The footways have been widened and resurfaced and new raised crossing points installed on across the road and on side roads.

Priory Road

A new shared use footway/cycleway has been built linking St Petroc's Church to the new roundabout at junction with Launceston Road. A new toucan crossing has been built to replace the pelican crossing.

Priory Road/Launceston Road

A new roundabout has been built to replace the previous junction.

Priory Park to Forth An Hellier

A new shared used footway/cycleway linking from the new Priory Road/Launceston Road roundabout to the Asda/Callywith junction.

Turf Street to Athelstan Park

Shared use route through Priory Park to an existing pathway which links to Athelstan Park. A shared use route has also been built linking Priory Road and the skate park.

Athelstan Park to Omaha Road

Cycle path route continues along the carriageway to Omaha Road via Castle Canyke Road and Royffe Way.

Omaha Road, College Lane, Green Lane Lostwithiel Road

New toucan crossing installed at the junction of Normandy Way and

Lostwithiel Road and a crossing point at College Lane. A shared use route has been built along Lostwithiel Road linking to the Sustrans cycle route which continues onto Lanhydrock and beyond.

Bodmin and Wenford Station

A new toucan crossing has been built close to the railway station, along with a new pedestrian island with cycle parking. Nearby footways have also been widened and improvements made to the junction.

Local Government Boundary Commission for England says 87 Cornwall Councillors from 2021

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Tue, 26/09/2017 - 12:11

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) announced today (26 September 2017) that from 2021, Cornwall Council should have 87 councillors, down from the current 123.

Today’s announcement follows an electoral review of Cornwall Council being carried out by the Commission to recommend the number of councillors and re-draw ward boundaries across Cornwall.

Cllr Malcolm Brown, the Chairman of the Council’s Electoral Review Panel said: "The number of councillors that should be on Cornwall Council from 2021 has been highly controversial ever since the Boundary Commission started its review last year.

“Many people in Cornwall, and a minority of Cornwall Councillors, have always wanted the number of councillors to be reduced significantly from the present size of 123, so the Commission's proposal for there to be only 87 councillors has drawn some support.

“However, the majority of Cornwall Councillors, both before and after this year's elections, strongly favoured a council size of 99 or more. The vast majority of Parish and Town Councils also want Cornwall Council to have 99 councillors or more. It’s disappointing the Boundary Commission has ignored their views. This is a very sad day for the representation of local people in  Cornwall.”

The Commission is now inviting people and groups across Cornwall to help  produce a new pattern of divisions to accommodate 87 councillors.

People have until 19 February 2018 to submit their views on how the new divisions for Cornwall will be drawn up. Further information on the review and interactive maps of the existing divisions can be found on the LGBC consultation page.

Caradon Community Network Panel to discuss plans for more say on local issues for local communities

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Mon, 25/09/2017 - 10:58

People in the Caradon Community Network area can learn about plans to give local communities a greater voice at the Caradon Community Network Panel meeting on 5 October.

The meeting will include a briefing on Cornwall Council’s Cabinet decision on 6 September to strengthen engagement with local communities and give them a greater voice through community network panels. This includes empowering panels by giving them more of a say on important local issues. 

David Eaton from the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner will be on hand to update the panel about the latest policing matters.

Jonathan Price, Cornwall Council’s Service Director for Adult Transformation and Commissioning, will also be coming along.  Each community network panel now has a member of Cornwall Council’s Leadership Team to give advice and help ensure strong links between the panel and the Council.  As the representative for Caradon, Jonathan will explain how he will support the panel, including helping to progress local concerns.

Cornwall Councillor Andrew Long, Chair of Caradon Community Network Panel, said: “This meeting is an opportunity for everyone to come along and find out what’s happening in the community network area.  There will be a chance to catch up on local updates from your Cornwall councillors, hear the latest about neighbourhood planning in the network area, and to ask questions and give feedback on the plans to give local communities a greater say in local issues.”

The Caradon Community Network Panel meets every two months to discuss matters that affect the local area and to progress these by working in partnership with Cornwall Council and its partners, including town and parish councils, the voluntary and community sector, and the police and health services. Some of the areas that community networks focus on include anti-social behaviour, economic development, the environment, community planning, regeneration, conservation, community safety, transport and highway issues. 

Caradon Community Network Panel includes all five Cornwall Councillors for the area and representatives of the following parishes: Callington, Calstock, Linkinhorne, Pillaton, South Hill, St Dominick, St Ive, St Mellion and Stoke Climsland.

The meeting takes place on Thursday 5 October from 7.30pm to 9.00pm at Callington Town Hall.  The agenda and more information about the panel are available on our Caradon Community Network page.  The meeting is open to the public and everyone is welcome.
