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 leisureconsultation@cornwall.gov.uk. 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. The feedback received indicated that the red area was the preferred option and this proposal has been backed by the Parish Council. Detailed plans are now being drawn up, if you have any questions or comments please do not hesitate to contact Adele Jones at northhillparishcouncil@btinternet.com or speak to any one of your Councillors.

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
