  • Planning for the Future – Government consultation paper on the changes to the planning system

The Government has published a white paper called Planning for the Future which is a consultation paper on changes to the planning system. It is aimed at streamlining and modernising the planning process with a new focus on design and sustainability to ensure that more land is available for development where it is needed. The consultation closes on 29 October 2020.                                                                                                                The Government has also published a further document on short-term measures which includes changes to the standard method for assessing local housing. The consultation for this document closes on the 1 October 2020.                          Cornwall Council’s Planning team has produced a briefing note summarising the key proposals


Preventing exploitation of children and young adults

A new three-year  strategy to prevent the exploitation of children and young adults aged up to 25 has been launched in Cornwall.

Exploitation is where someone takes unfair advantage of others to gain something for themselves. It occurs when a person is persuaded to do things in exchange for something that they need or want (coercion), or threatened or forced to do things by people with more power than them – this can be someone of a similar age to the child or young adult being exploited, as well as an adult.
There’s more information, including how to report any concerns on Cornwall Council’s website.


Stay alert, be COVID aware

There’s a  new film  from Cornwall Council’s Public Protection team with safety tips to help visitors, residents and local business prevent the spread of coronavirus and keep Cornwall safe.


Stop Loan Sharks Community Fund

There’s still time for local councils, charities, community and voluntary groups, schools and statutory agencies to apply for a grant of up to £5,000 from the Stop Loan Sharks Community Fund for projects that aim to tackle and raise awareness of loan sharks. But you’ll need to be quick as the deadline for applications is midnight on 31 August. 

The fund is formed of money seized from illegal money lenders under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002. For the first time this year joint applications are being accepted from up to four groups, which means a potential total grant of up to a maximum of £20,000 to fund a joint project.

Update from Cormac

Cormac Highways & Environment teams are gradually getting back to normal after scaling back their work activities due to government COVID-19 guidelines.

Highways:  initial focus is on the maintenance of the main routes. Surfacing, surface dressing and some site-based programmes started at the beginning of June. They are also keen to take advantage of lower traffic volumes and public footfall in some areas, as this minimises disruption for everyone, particularly local residents and businesses.

They will be carrying out essential surface dressing across the county over the next few months. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation they won’t currently be posting letters to individual households. Signs will be put up well in advance to notify local residents of the need to move parked cars to allow the work to be done without any delays.  Roads often have to be closed to provide enough room for works to be carried out safely.

Verge management: this year, Cormac have reviewed their programmes and have significantly reduced the areas of rural verges cut. Like many councils across the country, they cut highway grass in rural areas for’safety reasons only’, to preserve visibility for road users and to provide a safe space for pedestrians. This allows Cormac to fulfil safety requirements while fully committing to protecting wildlife and the wider environment.

Keeping updated: the highways updates are posted on the Cormac website programming pages so that you can see what’s happening in your area and when.

Staying connected: Cormac wish to ensure that communication line are kept open so that problems can be reported and dealt with. To report a highway or footpath problem (including potholes) please contact the highway services and fault reporting .
