Landewednack Parish Council News

The next Parish Council Meeting will take place on Thursday 9th September 2021 at Landewednack Community Primary School at 7.30 p.m.

Landewednack Parish Council met on 8th July 2021 for the Annual Meeting. Councillors unanimously elected Cllr Bernie Kessell as Chair for 2021-22.

This was the first meeting for the new Parish Councillors, following the election on 24th June 2021, and the first meeting to be held in person since early in 2020. New Councillors signed their Acceptance of Office declarations and will now undergo training in their new roles. All names and contact email addresses are shown on the Parish Council website – www.landewednackparishcouncil.org.uk

There followed a ‘usual’ Parish Council meeting although acting under advice from Cornwall Association of Local Councils, the meeting covered essential areas only. A full meeting will be held on September 9th. High on this Agenda were notifications and requests for various events that will be taking place in the village over the next few months.

The Clerk had been notified of several dates and has been given permission to set up a ‘Parish Diary’. This is to help events in the planning stage, to network and to avoid the dates clashing with others that are already being planned. Please do contact the Clerk if you are looking to arrange an event so that this central register can be kept up to date. (clerk@landewednackparishcouncil.org.uk).

Cornwall Community Land Trust will be addressing the new council with regards to the Affordable Housing project, and a working party will be set up.

The Council resolved to support the ‘20’s Plenty for us’ Road Safety Campaign and the Speedwatch initiative will be going ahead soon.

The lifting of Covid restrictions will see the village return to some form of normality, although visitor numbers are already high, with many choosing ‘staycations’ and visiting our lovely part of the world. Several of the new councillors are working throughout the summer season and will be juggling this with their commitments to Council business and to training. It is good to have 9 Councillors on board and The Clerk would like to thank them all for standing for election.
