During the public session:
Mrs Smith expressed her objection to development proposals at 4/5 Dozmere, Feock on the basis that
the site was too small for a dwelling and two cars, that they would be out of keeping in the streetscene,
and that the access was not suitable.
The Chairman thanked those who had attended the public session and explained the views
expressed would be taken into account during the following council meeting.

8987    MINUTES
        Councillor Hambly-Staite proposed that the minutes of the Council Meeting held on
        13th October 2008, as circulated, be confirmed as a true record and signed by the
        Chairman. This was seconded by Councillor Richards and carried by the meeting.

         Councillor Mrs Smeath proposed that the minutes of the Special Council Meeting held
         on 20th October 2008, as circulated, be confirmed as a true record and signed by the
         Chairman. This was seconded by Councillor Langdon and carried by the meeting.

8988     MATTERS ARISING

         REPORTS FROM MEMBERS
         Councillor Brock reported on his attendance at a further meeting of the Friends of Restronguet
         Point, and explained there were no significant issues for the attention of the parish council.

         Councillor Mrs Felton reported that there were also no significant issues for the parish council
         arising from her attendance at a recent meeting of Carnon Downs Hall Committee.

         REPORTS ON PREVIOUS AND ONGOING BUSINESS
         Councillor Brock reported that he and the Clerk had visited the proposed site for allotments in
         the locality, and to support the local landowner an advert had been placed in the local press.
         A highways engineer had also been consulted to ensure there would be no relevant planning
         objections.

         The Clerk confirmed that it was hoped that a meeting to resolve long-standing difficulties on
         Byway 29 would be held soon.
       The Clerk distributed the council's programme of meeting for 2009/10, which included the
       new cycle of parish plan working parties, but no specific provision for the parish service in
       2009.

       The Clerk reported on planning enforcement issues at Trevallion Park, Penpol, possible
       contravention of planning conditions on land at Feock, and an Enforcement Notice relating to
       Higher Tresithick Barn, Carnon Downs.

       Further to previous reports the Clerk explained that the Planning Brief for Devoran School
       had been approved by the District Council and would now be referred for adoption as SPD.
       The Clerk expressed the view that the Brief had been a very significant achievement for the
       parish council and, as it would help to protect the site from inappropriate development in the
       future, it would in time produce very significant benefits for the village.
       It was noted that the Clerk and Chairman and Vice-Chairman had met with the Headmistress
       of Devoran School and others very recently to open a debate on possible future uses of the
       site, and it was anticipated that further reports would be available in January.

8989   APOLOGIES
       Apologies were received from Councillors Groves, Mrs West, Tunnicliffe and District
       Councillor Mrs West

8990   CURRENT REPORTS

       CORNWALL COUNTY COUNCIL
       County Councillor Currie explained that One Cornwall continued to absorb a great deal of his
       time, and there were two more Directors to appoint over the coming week. With regard to Old
       Carnon Hill Councillor Currie explained that the speed tables could be improved in this area
       to help restrict traffic speeds to 20mph. Councillor Currie felt that finance was now being
       squeezed at County Hall, and the position didn't look good. PFI was also emerging as a long-
       term problem as some contracts had still not been completed.
       The Chairman thanked Councillor Currie for his attendance and report

       CARRICK DISTRICT COUNCIL
       Mrs West was not in attendance to give a report on this occasion

       District Councillor Chamberlain reported on the progress of the Localism Agenda and the
       evolution of the Unitary Authority and expressed the view that great credit was due for the
       progress made so far. Work was also going forward on the Planning Local Development
       Framework and information on this was available on the One Cornwall website. It was noted
       that the Community Networks were developing but it was unlikely they would bring large
       volumes of finance for discretionary spending locally. Councillor Chamberlain referred to the
       Truro and Threemilestone Action Plan consultation, which was ongoing.
       The Chairman thanked Councillor Chamberlain for his attendance and report

       District Councillor Hill reported on current activities at the District Council and explained that
       he would continue to support the parish council in their various activities for the community,
       and planning matters in particular.
       The Chairman thanked Councillor Hill for his attendance and report

       DEVON AND CORNWALL POLICE
       PC Nigel Hyde reported on crime since the last meeting including a burglary at Carnon
       Downs Garden Centre, and criminal damage in Forth Coth and St Johns Terrace. PC Hyde
       thanked the parish council for the facilities offered to PCSO Moreton to promote
       "Horsewatch", a local scheme which it was hoped would deter the growing number of
       assaults on horses in the area.
       The Chairman thanked PC Hyde for his attendance and his very useful ongoing work in
       the community.

8991   PLANNING

       A full list of applications approved by the District Council since the last meeting is set out
       in Appendix A.
       Decisions on all applications considered for consultation by the Parish Council at this
       meeting are set out in Appendix B attached.

8992   CCC FAMILY INFORMATION SERVICE
       Julie Pickerill from the CCC Family Information Service gave the council a presentation on
       the services offered within the Carrick area. Julie highlighted that she was keen to promote
       partnership working and that the parish council could help to promote and support the service
       in various ways. It was noted that the Family Service primarily offered information and advice
       on childminders, crèches, day nurseries, holiday schemes, out of school clubs, parent and
       toddler groups, toy libraries, extended school services, children's centres, early years
       education, nursery education grant funding, and working tax credits. The service was also able
       to help and support families and children in making the best and most realistic choice of
       secondary or primary school. It was noted that the parish council could help advertise and
       promote the service and as far as possible work with it and the local community.
       The Chairman thanked Julie Pickerill for her attendance and presentation which had
       been most informative and helpful, and explained that the council would be pleased to
       support the service in the various ways put forward.

8993   CASUAL VACANCY DEVORAN WARD
       The Clerk reported that following statutory advertising by the District Council there would not
       be a formal election to fill the vacancy in Devoran. In these circumstances the parish council
       would now advertise for expressions of interest and would fill the vacancy by co-option,
       hopefully at the next meeting in December.

8994   DISTRICT COUNCIL HOUSING STRATEGY
       Nick Marsden from the District Council Housing Department attended to give the council an
       update following his initial discussions with the council in July. It was noted that since that
       meeting it had been agreed that Feock could not sustain a development and that Devoran
       might only sustain a very small development if land were available. Currently suitable land
       was not available in Devoran for affordable housing. It was noted that of the possible six sites
       suitable in Carnon Downs only an area in Bissoe Road next to the Doctor's Surgery was
       available, and that this was currently being investigated further. Following a general
       discussion Councillor Mrs Smeath proposed that the council agree to support the
       establishment of an affordable housing site at Bissoe Road in Carnon Downs subject to
       the houses being let to meet the defined local needs in the parish area, improvements in
       traffic arrangements on Bissoe Road, a S106 agreement to dedicate the rest of the land to
       the parish council for recreational purposes, public consultation in due course, and the
       establishment of a joint working party comprising the parish council, the district council
       and a housing association to take matters forward. This was seconded by Councillor
       Hambly-Staite and carried by the meeting.

8995   CONSULTATION- DEVORAN CONSERVATION AREA MANAGEMENT PLAN
       Members considered a document setting out the council's formal consultation response to the
       Devoran Conservation Area Management Plan as set out in Appendix D. Following some
       discussion Councillor Mrs Baker proposed the council agree the response to the Devoran
       Conservation Area Management Plan as set out. This was seconded by Councillor Mrs
       Smeath and carried by the meeting.

8996   PARISH COUNCIL PRE-BUDGET REPORT
       Members considered a report from the Clerk setting out the difficulties facing the parish
       council, known pressures on the council's budget from spending decisions taken during the
       current year, early indications of the likely net expenditure requirements for 2009/10, details
       of likely additional financial support necessary to support the parish plan, and details of the
       likely impact of the council's budget on the local community arising from various options.
       Following a lengthy debate Councillor Hambly-Staite proposed, in view of the fact that
       financial sums will not be available from the Unitary Authority to support the parish
       plan, the general economic climate, and the reasonable impact of such increases on the
       local community the council increase its budget by £5000 to restore balances and sustain
       adequate reserves, and a further £18,200 to finance other urgent repairs and other issues
       not currently financed in the parish plan. This was seconded by Councillor Mrs Felton
       and carried by the meeting.
8997   ACCOUNTS FOR PAYMENT
       Councillor Mrs Woolcock declared an interest in this item and took no part in the
       discussion or voting.

       The Clerk circulated the attached list at Appendix C showing accounts for payment for
       November amounted to £4808.19. Councillor Richards proposed the accounts be approved
       for payment and cheques signed accordingly. This was seconded by Councillor Mrs
       Baker and carried by the meeting.

8998   DATE OF NEXT MEETING. 15th December 2008, Feock Parish Office at 7.15pm.

                                                                                     APPENDIX A

                     PLANNING APPLICATIONS CONSIDERED ON
                              17TH NOVEMBER 2008

1.    MR & MRS J. BROWN, POLSUE COTTAGE, POINT ROAD, DEVORAN.
      Erect side extension to dwelling
      The Parish Council strongly objects to this proposal on the basis that the design is out of
      character in it’s local setting, and will have a detrimental affect on an adjacent historic
      village green.
      The main issues that give cause for concern, are that the proposed patio window is not of
      a similar design to other windows in the area, and that the frontage proposed, has not
      been set back in character with the existing dwelling.
      It is respectively suggested that these proposals be redesigned.
2.   MR I. LILLICRAP, LAUNDRY COTTAGE, RESTRONGUET POINT, FEOCK.
     Revisions to permission PA07/0987/08/R relating to amended roof covering and the addition
     of lantern light to conservatory.
     The Parish Council has no objection to these proposals as set out.

3.   MR & MRS BRIMELOW, LITTLE ORCHARD, OLD CARNON HILL, CARNON
     DOWNS.
     PVCu conservatory extension to rear of existing dwelling.
     The Parish Council has no objection to this proposal as set out

4.   MRS H. BURROWS, SITE BETWEEN 4 & 5 DOZMERE, FEOCK.
     Construction of dwelling.
     The Parish Council has serious objection to these proposals, and completely support
     objections made by residents and a local petition.
     a.      The construction of a dwelling on the site proposed should be refused by the
             District Council on the basis that the proposed site is not suitable as a dwelling.
     b.      The access will be problematical, that the visual impact will be out of keeping in
             the street scene, and will be not beneighbourly.
     On the basis of the strength of local opinion and that of the Parish Council it is
     respectfully suggested that this proposal be refused, and that no further proposals for
     development of this site are brought forward again.

5.   MR & MRS M. HASSALL, CHYKESTON, CARNON DOWNS GARDEN CENTRE,
     QUENCHWELL DOWNS, CARNON DOWNS.
     Modify section 52 agreement dated 20/05/1988 in order to lift the restriction on the house to
     be linked to the Carnon Downs Garden Centre and to remove clauses i), iii), iv), v) and vi.
     The Parish Council has strong objection to lifting conditions within the section 52
     agreement on the basis that this building is outside the village boundary, and as such
     would not have been given approval initially, were it not for it’s linkage with the
     adjoining retail development.
     Lifting of this condition will effectively provide a positive determination for residential
     development well outside the existing village boundary.
     There are in place significant legal agreements for these proposals, the section 52
     agreement should therefore stand as originally set out.

6.   MR M. R. WARD, OAK LODGE, 4, WELLINGTON PLANTATION, PENELEWEY,
     FEOCK.
      Prune 3 Sycamore and one Oak tree. Fell one Oak tree
     The Parish Council has no objection to these proposals as set out subject to the
     observation of Carrick District Council’s Trees Officer.

7.   MR R. HAYMES, EDWARDS HOUSE, 8, DEVORAN LANE, DEVORAN.
     Replace existing timber glazed windows with double glazed timber window.
     The Parish Council has no objection to these proposals as set out.

8.   MR C. BERRIMAN, GLEN BERRY, PILL CREEK, FEOCK.
     Works to one Oak tree-shorten 2 limbs, raise crown and clear BT wires.
     The Parish Council has no objection to these proposals as set out subject to the
     observation of Carrick District Council’s Trees Officer.
