24”x18” x 3” inch deep, 6th June

This pothole has been visible for over 3 months and is getting wider and deeper. CCC have repaired this numerous times without any success. The whole of the lane needs resurfacing. With the amount of people walking not to mention cycling and damage to cars this area needs an urgent attention.

Fire service plea for people not to light bonfires, as calls increase by 43%

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Thu, 04/06/2020 - 17:24

Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service and the Environmental Health department are urging people not to light outdoor fires at this time after a 43% increase in call-outs since last year.

At a time when fire crews need to be on standby to help respond to this health crisis, and when some officers are seconded to help ambulances and paramedics, the service has seen an increase in incidents of hedge fires, shed fires and gorse fires - many of which are sparked by bonfires.  

Cornwall’s Environmental Health team is also concerned about the effect of smoke on people with respiratory conditions. 

Cabinet Member for Environment and Public Protection, Rob Nolan, said: “We understand that during the lockdown more people are enjoying their gardens and finding it difficult to dispose of their green waste through the normal routes.

“However, smoke from burning garden waste can often impact on neighbours, particularly those who are vulnerable and especially those who are unwell with respiratory illnesses, and may also prevent them from enjoying their garden themselves. Please be thoughtful and neighbourly in these unusual circumstances.” 

The effects of increased calls to CFRS is continuing to impact fire crews and the Critical Control team, placing unnecessary strain on the system.

The Covid-19 pandemic means that we are all having to live differently, work differently and adapt to a different normal. All key services of Cornwall Council ask you to consider the following: 

  • Do you have to burn? 
  • Think of the potential impacts to the environment and wildlife around us, particularly at this time of year and with the prolonged dry weather. 
  • Consider the impacts on all people within our communities, self-isolating and/or high risk groups shielding and the impacts of smoke on existing respiratory conditions and those associated with Covid-19. 
  • Think of the impact on already stretched resources and all the unnecessary call outs to incidents of this nature. 
  • Give consideration to the potential damage and fire spread to neighbouring properties and the potential dangers of risk to life and to property, whilst also exposing fire crews to increased risks with these incidents and unnecessary contact and travel. 
  • Green waste should be composted in your garden, or stored until such time that the normal green waste disposal routes are resumed. 

For those residents who are adversely affected by smoke from neighbours repeatedly having garden waste bonfires, or who believe that other items such as plastics or treated wood are being burned, then please contact Environmental Health on 0300 1234 212 .

Warning to campers flouting COVID-19 rules

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Thu, 04/06/2020 - 15:26

Campers staying in caravans, campervans and tents overnight are breaking COVID-19 laws and face a fine or prosecution, Cornwall Council and Devon and Cornwall Police have warned. 

Their joint message comes after increased reports of people camping near beaches and beauty spots such as Porthcurno and Bodmin Moor. 

From Monday Cornwall Council restarted enforcing parking safety rules. Officers have so far issued a total of 14 penalty charges to drivers of mobile home vehicles staying overnight in Council carparks illegally. Thirteen of these notices were served in Newquay and one was issued in Bude.  

Police have warned if they receive reports of people staying in caravans and campervans overnight they will investigate, enforce regulations and ask occupiers to return home. 

Since 13 May when lockdown measures were amended, Devon and Cornwall Police have issued a total of 92 fines to individuals for breaches of COVID-19 legislation with 63% of those fines related to overnight stays and second homes. 

Campsites remain closed as part of the emergency business closures and Cornwall Council continues to investigate any reports of businesses suspected to be breaking the rules. 

Rob Nolan, Cornwall’s portfolio holder for the environment and public protection, said: “With the recent spell of sunny weather we’re seeing more people camping in the countryside but we’re reminding everyone that under the COVID-19 laws overnight stays outside your home are illegal and you can face a fine or prosecution. 

“These rules were introduced to prevent the spread of this virus, protect our communities and relieve pressure on our NHS services, so please, enjoy our beaches and coastal paths but go home at the end of the day and if you’re a potential visitor planning a camping trip here please come back later.”  

A Devon and Cornwall Police spokesperson said: “A crucial part of this process for us has been to work closely with our communities in order to shape the approach we took and to enable us to understand the concerns and issues within our own towns and villages. Several communities told us that they were concerned about second homes and overnight stays so that was an area we focussed on, particularly since the changes to lockdown earlier this month. 

“Further changes in lockdown restrictions mean that from this week, up to six people, from different households, can meet outside but it is crucial to remember that individuals still must return home at the end of the day – overnight stays for holiday or social purposes are not permitted, nor is staying in a second home. Where reports of COVID-19 breaches are made to police, officers will use their discretion to engage, educate and encourage before using enforcement as a last resort where necessary. 

“The majority of people are continuing to play their part in this national endeavour and it’s important that we all continue to take personal responsibility for our actions and Think Twice – is it safe and is it fair?” 

If you’re concerned that a vehicle is parked illegally or that a business may be breaking the rules, please contact Cornwall Council on 0300 123 1118 or at covid19@cornwall.gov.uk.   

For any social gatherings concerns contact the police on 101 or 999 in an emergency.  

Cornwall Council has not been given any legal powers under the Coronavirus emergency laws to ask people to leave their second homes.  

The Government has produced guidance on business closures for further reference. However, if you require additional advice please do not hesitate to contact the Council’s Business Support Hub at businessadvice@cornwall.gov.uk.
