S106 Park Improvements

Published: 31 Mar 21

Exciting plans to transform three play areas in Threemilestone, Gloweth and Shortlanesend have taken a giant leap forward this week following Kenwyn Parish Council’s decision to select two companies to deliver the long awaited £140,000 project. Kenwyn Parish Council has been working hard during the past 12 months to finalise its plans to improve three of its existing play parks using s106 funding from developer contributions so they can be enjoyed by all parts of the local community. Previous public consultations, including school workshops, written questionnaires and a public exhibition, highlighted the need for new play equipment for a wider range of ages and disabilities, as well as providing new areas for people to sit and relax. click title to read more details...

Covid-19 Updates - Shortlanesend Village Hall

Published: 29 Jun 20

Shortlanesend Village Hall The hall has been deep cleaned throughout and completely redecorated. At present Government Guidance is unclear on Village Halls. Whilst Community Centres can re-open from 4th July Village Halls have not been specifically mentioned. We are implementing a programme of social distancing for when the hall does re-open and unfortunately at this time that only allows for twelve people in the hall at any one time. However, at present we can't even allow this as the guidance says no more than two households indoors at any one time. Going forward we hope this will be lifted and we can open to 12. At present no sports, keep fit or close contact booking can be taken. Once the hall re-opens there will be new procedures such as a one way system in and out using the fire doors on the side of the building to enter and the front doors as the exit. Cleaning will take place after every hire session. Users will need to complete their own risk assessment and this will be held by the council. The council will make ad hoc checks to ensure the premises is being used correctly. Users will be asked to clean the toilet after every use. Users will also be asked to keep a register of every person present at the hall so that the Government's Track and Trace System can access this information. A new system will be introduced to maintain distance whilst entering the building. The Council has leased a Commercial Dishwasher and all crockery and cutlery must be washed in this. Hopefully we can update you further on re-opening the hall soon. Read More...

Truro & Kenwyn Neighbourhood Plan

Published: 9 Mar 20

Issued on behalf of Truro and Kenwyn Neighbourhood Plan Partnership Have you had your say on changes to Truro and Kenwyn Neighbourhood Plan? 9 March 2020 A big thank you to the hundreds of people who have given us their views on the proposed changes to the Truro and Kenwyn Neighbourhood Plan by coming along to one of our consultation events or visiting the Neighbourhood Plan website. The current Truro and Kenwyn Neighbourhood Plan was formally adopted in December 2016. The proposed 2020 updates to the plan are to ensure that proposals for the Langarth Garden Village scheme and the Pydar Street redevelopment are underpinned by good design principles and respond to the declaration of Climate Change Emergencies by Cornwall Council and Truro City and Kenwyn Parish Councils. Truro and Kenwyn Councils have been working together to understand how the Neighbourhood Plan can be updated to deliver this. We want to make sure that everyone living in Truro or in the parish of Kenwyn has the opportunity to help shape the future of their local community. Almost three hundred people visited our consultation events at Shortlanesend, Truro Library and the Farmers Market in Lemon Quay, with many more visiting the Neighbourhood Plan website http://trurokenwynplan.org and submitting their comments online. We are staging two further consultation events before the closing date for comments on 22 March. These are taking place on: Thursday, 12 March 10am till 2pm Truro Library Friday, 13 March 2pm till 8pm Threemilestone Community Centre The Neighbourhood Plan is a locally led document that plans for meeting local needs for housing, community facilities and jobs and where they should go. It also helps plan for and protect the green and open spaces that are important to the community. There are suggestions for new policies to improve health and wellbeing and create a greener city with more sustainable ways to travel, as well as promoting better energy efficiency, drainage and other environmental standards for new buildings and places. The revised plan proposals are available to view on the Truro and Kenwyn Neighbourhood Plan website (http://trurokenwynplan.org). Comments are welcome by email at comments@trurokenwynplan.org. Following the closing date for comments, all comments will be considered by the two Councils and the plan amended to reflect the feedback. There will then be a further opportunity for comments to be made in the early summer of 2020. The amended plan will then be considered by Cornwall Council before being inspected by an independent person ahead of a public referendum in the autumn of 2020.
