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 contact the Parish Council meeting and 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.
