GWR RAIL IMPROVEMENT WORKS

Upcoming improvements taking place in West Cornwall. This starts on Saturday and will run through to Sunday 23 February so don’t forget to check carefully if you’re travelling during this time.

Network Rail will be using this time to renew track through Camborne as well as waterproofing the viaduct in Hayle. The St Ives Bay Line will also be closed from Saturday 15 to Tuesday 18 February for bridge renewals. To find out more visit GWR.com/WestCornwall.

To follow this, there will be a series of other improvement works. Here is a summary:

·         Sunday 1 March – buses replace trains between Truro and Penzance (including the St Ives Bay Line). This is a planned follow-up on the back of the main closure

·         Tuesday 3 to Thursday 5 March – Buses will replace trains on the branch line between Liskeard and Looe for bridge renewals. To find out more, visit GWR.com/Looe

·         Sunday 8 March – buses replace trains between Liskeard and Truro (including the Atlantic Coast Line to Newquay)

·         Weekends of 14/15 and 21/22 March – buses replace trains on the Atlantic Coast Line. Buses will start/terminate at St Austell instead of Par

Network Rail have revised their work programme to make allowances for Storm Dennis. 

Replacing a bridge between St Erth and St Ives requires the use of a large crane, which cannot be operated in high winds.

This means that the work will take longer, and the line will now close from Saturday 15 February through to Thursday 20 February.  Buses will replace trains during that period.

We will be alerting customers through traditional and social media and through information at stations.

There is no change to the work between Truro and Penzance, which will start on Saturday 15 February and be completed before start of service on Monday 24 February.

Surface works are planned to start on Byway 47 on Wednesday 19 February 2020 and will continue for 3 days.

During the hours of 07.30 to 16.30 the byway will be completely closed.

Outside of these hours residents will be able to gain access in and out of their properties.

PLEASE NOTE that the car park at the Basketball Court will be closed.

CO-OPTION counCillor VACANcY breage parish council

CO-OPTION VACANCY BREAGE PARISH COUNCIL

Breage Parish Council is looking to co-opt a Member to the Parish Council

The person co-opted must receive a majority of votes of those councillors present and voting at the meeting at which the co-option takes place. Parish Councillors are volunteers who give up their time to try and make the Parish a better place to live and work. They have a range of powers and duties over local facilities and make decisions, which affect Parishioner’s everyday lives. A Parish Council is a separate legal, corporate entity. First created by the Local Government Act of 1894 in most rural areas, the current consolidated legislation is that of 1972. Councillors are not paid and have to abide by a local government code of conduct and declare a personal or prejudicial interest if they have an interest in any matter under discussion at a parish council meeting. To appreciate what is involved in being a Parish Councillor you need to know what a Parish Council is, and what it can and cannot do. The Parish Council is nothing to do with the Church or the Diocese; nor is it a voluntary and community sector body. Your Parish Council is the local authority closest to the electorate.

The Parish Council may provide services for the local people. These range from recreation grounds and play areas, to cemeteries and allotments. There is a list of the activities that a Parish Council has the power to provide. Like any statutory body it can only do the things for which the law or any governing document gives a power.

The Parish Council has one particular asset that is extremely valuable – it has the ability to set a Precept, (sum of money), which is collected from all residents through the Council Tax system. With the right to levy a form of taxation come some duties. In particular there is a duty to behave in an ethical manner according to a Code of Conduct (declaring interests and leaving the room when likely to be prejudiced) and a duty to have the annual accounts subjected to audit under the aegis of the Audit Commission.

Training is available and support will be found from colleagues and the Clerk to the Council.

All elected Councillors retire after a four year term, but casual vacancies may well arise in the intervening period. The next full elections will be in May 2021.

To become a Parish Councillor you will need to be 18 years old or over on the day of your nomination and a British citizen, an eligible Commonwealth citizen or a citizen of any other member state of the European Union and meet at least one of the following four qualifications:

  1. be registered as a local government elector for the parish;
  2. have during the whole of the preceding twelve months occupied as owner or tenant, any land or premises in the parish;
  3. your principal or only place of work during the preceding twelve months has been in the parish;
  4. have during the whole of the preceding twelve months resided in the parish or within 4.8 km thereof.

Certain people are disqualified from becoming Councillors. You cannot be a candidate if you:

  • work for the Parish or hold paid office under the council which has the vacancy; or
  • are the subject of a bankruptcy restrictions order or interim order; or
  • have been sentenced to a term of imprisonment of three months or more (including a suspended sentence) without the option of a fine, in the past five years; or
  • have been disqualified under any enactment relating to corrupt or illegal practices.

The Council meets on the first Tuesday of each month, apart from January and September when it is the second Tuesday,

and also on the Thursday before each Ordinary Parish Council Meeting to discuss and vote on planning and land use matters.

Should you be interested in this vacancy you must be sure that you are eligible to stand and then formally make application in writing to the Clerk giving some personal details: former work; committees; family; interests; how long you have been in the Parish; why you wish to be a Councillor, etc. You are welcome to do this by e-mail. This should be done by Friday 26 July 2019. You will then be asked to attend the Parish Council meeting on Tuesday 6 August at 7.00 p.m. when a vote will be taken. Before you make your decision to apply and if you have never attended a Parish Council Meeting before, you may wish to attend the Planning meeting on 1 August and to obtain some idea of agendas and procedures.

ASHTON AMENITY FIELD PLAY EQUIPMENT

The Play Equipment for Ashton Field has now been installed. Grants were received from the National Lottery Awards for All and from Viridor Credits Environmental Company and that paid for the equipment and installation. The Parish Council thanks the Lottery and Viridor for their wonderful grants.

The equipment is ready to use. There is to be an official opening but a date has not yet been set. There is one picture below but there are also swings, a roundabout, a climbing wall and 2 springy animals.

Enjoy.
