North Hill Parish Council

Welcome to the website organised and maintained by North Hill Parish Council, we hope you find it useful. The objective of the site is to provide information about the activities of the council and relay information and support available from Cornwall County Council.

Recent Additions - Review of planning applications, speeding at Congdon's Shop and planning for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

At the monthly meeting of North Hill Parish Council held in North Hill Village Hall on 8 October planning applications for land south of Blacksmiths Meadow, Coads Green and the new Cemetery at North Hill were discussed. To view the comments recorded by the Parish Council, select Notice Board under the Parish Council tab.

Residents of Congdon's Shop who are concerned that the new 40mph signs are being regularly ignored spoke to the Council and suggested a range of measures that they felt would alleviate the problems. Councillors advised them that this issue has been a matter of concern for many years and many of the measures that were suggested had already been rejected. However, the Council agreed to write the the Police asking them to implement speed checks and raise the issue with Highways again.

The United Kingdom’s long tradition of celebrating Royal Jubilees, Weddings and Coronations with the lighting of beacons will be continued to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. Beacons will be lit throughout the United Kingdom on Thursday 2 June 2022. The Parish Council will ask whether a local landowner is willing for a site used previously to be used again. In addition, it is planned to give a specially minted commemorative coin to all children in the parish under the age of sixteen. Names of eligible children are being collected by the Chairman and Clerk, please phone or use the northhillparishcouncil@btinternet.com email address to register your interest. Details of the coin can be viewed by selectjng Notice Board under the Parish Council tab.

Update on the closure of St Torney's Church.

The Church of England Church Commissioners have written to North Hill Parish Council with a copy of a draft Pastoral (Church Buildings Disposal) scheme prepared by the Church Commissioners providing for the preservation of the closed church of North Hill St Torney by the Churches Conservation Trust. The Churches Conservation Trust (“the Trust”) shall be responsible for the care and maintenance of the building and both old and new graveyards. The Commissioners have agreed to publish a draft Pastoral (Church Buildings Disposal) Scheme providing for the closed church of North Hill St Torney to be vested in the Churches Conservation Trust (CCT) for care and maintenance. The Commissioners statutory advisors, the Statutory Advisory Committee of the Church Buildings Council (SAC) have indicated in their early advice of 17 December 2018, that St Torney’s is of outstanding quality and of high significance overall and that the church ought to be preserved in the interests of the nation and the Church of England by vesting it in the CCT. The church is richly decorated and has some significant memorials. It is a positive and dominant feature within the street scene and wider landscape. The richness and significance of the church interior means that it would not lend itself to internal subdivision.

Rural Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme (Rural GBVS)

Gigabit-capable broadband connections offer the fastest and most reliable speeds available, and the Government is committed to a vision of a digitally connected Britain.

Homes and businesses in rural areas of the UK may be eligible for funding towards the cost of installing gigabit-capable broadband when part of a group scheme.

Rural premises with broadband speeds of less than 100Mbps can use vouchers worth £1,500 per home and up to £3,500 for each small to medium-sized business (SME) to support the cost of installing new fast and reliable connections.

Superfast Cornwall is encouraging businesses and residents that are beyond any existing superfast broadband rollout plans to apply to this scheme.

John McLeod from Bathpool has offered to co-ordinate the efforts of anyone who wishes to be involved in this scheme, please send your name and email address to mcleod@btinternet.com
