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.
Proposed changes to the provision of leisure centres in Cornwall
In Cornwall there is a mix of leisure centres and facilities operated independently by the private or voluntary sector and leisure centres operated by social enterprise Greenwich Leisure Limited (GLL) through a contract with Cornwall Council. As a consequence of the pandemic the viability of leisure facilities throughout the county is under review. One of the leisure centres being assessed is Launceston Leisure Centre. The centre provides a small gym, studio, 25m swimming pool and learner pool together with squash court, sports hall and outdoor multi-use games area.
The site is owned by a local charity called the Coronation Park Trust. The lease between Cornwall Council and Coronation Park Trust expires in January 2023. The Council intends to work with GLL and the Trust to ensure that the operation of the centre continues until then. The Council would then hand back the site to the Trust for them to decide how they want to use the site going forward and whether they want to continue operating it as a leisure centre.
There is to be a public consultation between 22 September and 31 October 2021. For further information and to complete a consultation questionnaire, please visit letstalk.cornwall.gov.uk/leisure or contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Other relevant documents produced by Cornwall County Council can be downloaded under the News/Events tabs.
Updated Proposals for new Parish Cemetery at North Hill
North Hill Parish Council have consulted the residents of North Hill in relation to the new proposed Parish Cemetery. The Parish Council had highlighted two options on a map that can be viewed on the Notice Board under the Parish Council tab.

Detailed plans are now being drawn up, if you have any questions or comments please do not hesitate to contact Adele Jones at email@example.com or speak to any one of your Councillors.
