Change at the top
After 15+ years as Chairman of the Parish Council, which was preceded by 15+ more as vice-chairman, Dennis Hicks has decided to step down from his role at the top table. Dennis has worked tirelessly on behalf of the Parish during his time as Chairman and we would like to thank him for all the work he has done. He remains a Parish Councillor and will continue to support and give his experience to his fellow Councillors and to the new Chairman. The role of Chairman has been taken on by David Skelton, David was voted in unanimously by the Parish Council at the AGM and we wish him well in taking up this position. David has been on the Council since the previous Chairman was in situ and his extensive local knowledge and dedication to the Parish, means that South Hill Parish Council will be in safe hands under his stewardship.
Community Network Highways Scheme
This is a new initiative giving the Caradon Network Area (thatís South Hill + 7 neighbouring parishes) £50,000 to spend on highway improvements of our choosing. It canít be used for routine maintenance which rules out fixing drains and potholes. Proposals with wide public support which benefit more than one parish are more likely to succeed. Stoke Climsland Parish Council has proposed speed warning signs for Bray Shop. Linkinhorne and our parish are supporting the idea which will benefit all three. When you are next out on the road, think about good uses for that money. Let any of your parish Councillors know or email the council: email@example.com, or by using the enquiry form on this website. Others from elsewhere will if you donít!
Community Benefit Fund
The latest instalment of the Community Benefit Fund from the Trefinnick Solar Farm has now been received by the Parish Council. The Council are inviting any residents of the Parish to attend the next Parish Council meeting to put forward their ideas of how these funds could be spent. There are various rules regarding how the funds can be spent:
to use the Community Benefit Payment for charitable, educational, environmental, amenity or other appropriate purposes within the areas of the Community and, wherever possible, to apply the Community Benefit Payment towards the promotion of sustainable energy and uses
not to use the Community Benefit Payment for political, religious, entertainment or hospitality purposes, or for any purpose adverse to the Operator's interest in the scheme
The final decision on how these funds will be allocated lies with the Parish Council.
Three Public Display Meetings were held in Callington Town Hall at the beginning of May. The displays showed historical mining and Cornwall Resources' 2017 drilling locations and results alongside the proposed drilling for 2018. Around 90 people attended the displays and CRL were delighted with the general response which was very positive to the restarting of the mining programme in the Kelly Bray area.
A new General Permitted Development Order has been approved by Cornwall Council for a further 6 months of exploration drilling. The drilling started in June along Redmoor Road in a field where drilling had previously occurred last year.
