Polperro and Lansallos Parish Neighbourhood Development Plan - Referendum 24th January 2019
Polperro and Lansallos Parish Development Plan was successful at Referendum on 24th January 2019 with over 90% of votes cast in favour of its adoption. The policies in the NDP, formulated from input supplied by the residents of this parish will now carry great weight in deciding planning applications within the parish boundary. Many thanks to the dedicated team of Parish Councillors and residents of this Parish who put so much work in bringing this plan into being over the last three years and also to all residents of the parish who participated by providing input and feedback during the process and, of course, brought success with their votes. Formal notice of the result can be seen here.
Refurbishment of Big Green
PCC’s Planning Application for the refurbishment of Big Green has been approved, with conditions, by Cornwall Council. This is clearly a major step vital step in the process but there remain many hurdles to overcome before work can commence. The conditions pertain to the site’s former use as a garage and the potential ground contamination which might be present from old fuel tanks. Studies will noe be commissioned to decide what contamination is present and devise a plan for its removal. Follow this link link to view the application. You will find Cornwall Council’s Decision Notice under the “Documents” tab.

Support your Mobile Library Service
The Mobile Library Service visits Polperro on a Tuesday every four weeks, stopping at the lorry park in the village and outside the school at Brentfields. It is currently underused and, like all services these days, will be subject to review. If you want to see this service continued, it needs your support - use it or lose it! More details here.
Are you getting fed up with the level of dog fouling around the parish? You can help bring perpetrators to the attention of Cornwall Council by reporting instances that you witness on their website. Cornwall Council will investigate all dog fouling complaints that are received - although the level of service that they can provide will obviously vary depending upon the quality of information that is provided. For example they would be in a better position to take action should you be able to provide a full description of what happened, including date, time, location, what you witnessed, description of the dog/owner and as much information as possible about the incident - also any information regarding the offender - which could include name/address (if known), vehicle registration number or any other identifying feature.
