Polperro Community Council -Statement of Persons Elected
Understandably, many people are concerned about the current Coronavirus issues and there is much speculation, some well informed and some less so, sweeping the press and social media. To keep you informed of the real facts and guidance, Cornwall Council has published an Information about Coronavirus (COVID-19) page on its website with useful links and general information on staying well during the flu season. This is where you should go for the latest national guidance, as the sites shown on this page will be routinely updated. Public Health England is leading on advice for the public. For further information please visit the NHS website.
Residents of Lansallos Parish - Do you need help during the Corona Virus restrictions? Polperro Community Council is looking to support residents of the parish who need assistance during the current health crisis. If you need help with shopping, prescriptions etc or are willing to help provide assistance for for the more vulnerable or at-risk members of the community then please read this NOTICE which provides more details.
Cornwalll Council is conducting a public consultation form 17 March to 14th April on a Traffic Regulation Order to extend the no parking zone on Landgreek Road.

Polperro Community Cupboard has now been established at the Village Hall, which contains a selection of arts and crafts supplies, puzzle books and games among other fun things to help you get through the lockdown hours. It is free to any member of the community so feel free to take a look and help yourselves to anything. There is hand sanitizer available and a number of rules in force to ensure everyone’s safety. Please make sure you follow them.
All of this was supplied thanks to a donation from a Polperro well-wisher and a contribution to the Community Council from County Councillor Edwina Hannaford’s Community Chest. We hope you like what we’ve chosen to start with but if you have any ideas for top ups please let Jude Greville in the Post Office know. You are also most welcome to gift anything for the cupboard but please donate via the Post Office so items can be suitably sanitised before being placed in the cupboard. The cupboard will be open daily 9am to 5pm.
Many of you will be aware that Polperro Community Council employs a Community Enforcement Officer to help tackle instances of dog fouling and littering. He is fully authorised to issue Fixed Penalty Notices where necessary to those failing to follow the rules. Please read our “Advice to Dog Owners” leaflet for information on the laws regarding responsible dog ownership. This can be found here or on the Parish Notice boards.
Want to help with the issue of dog fouling? 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.
