A Busy Week for the Town Council

After taking on the ownership of the Library building on 1st November, town councillors met with Library staff and volunteers for a celebration with cake and bubbly, to mark the start of our new relationship. A good time was had by all.

The following day we presented our annual Feast Awards, following the Feast Sunday service in St Just Parish Church. This year’s recipients were:

  • Citizen of the Year: Alison Grose
  • Junior Citizen: Emily Earley
  • Sports Award: David Trezise
  • Community Group Award: St Just and District Cancer Research Committee

Congratulations to them all.

Painting a Parish Future Event Pendeen

The full report of the event can be seen at the link below. Through contacts made at the presentation, it is hoped that the painting and research will be exhibited at St Just Library, while also being shared with the Town Council and the Local Neighbourhood Development Plan as an example of public engagement. Discussion has already begun regarding on further collaboration by Peter Ward with Dr Willett with the possibility of developing the event in other areas. Business and public groups in the area have also approached Peter to run similar workshops for upcoming events.

Neighbourhood Plan Meeting 17th January 2018

Following the Neighbourhood Plan meeting in St Just last month, we appreciate your expression of interest in being involved in taking the Neighbourhood Plan forward, and we are writing now to update you. We are sorry it has taken a few weeks, but we wanted to be able to tell you what is to happen next.

There will be a further public meeting on Wednesday 17th January 2018, in Pendeen Parish Hall commencing at 7pm. Please see the meeting poster. At that meeting, James Hardy (our Community Link Officer) will explain the detail of the four groups:

  • The Steering Group will be responsible for the Project Plan and management
  • The Built Environment and Natural Environment Groups will investigate and gather views on these topics
  • The Community Engagement Group will communicate and keep records of all that happens

Participation in the groups should be seen as a two-year commitment, to see it through.

We hope to have the Chair of another Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group in the west of the county come to give us a brief talk of how they got their neighbourhood plan going.

Then we will divide into four groups, to share thoughts and establish how each group will move forward.

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting. We attach a poster if you are able to publicise this as widely as possible. Thank you. Meanwhile, if you have any queries or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us via the Locum Clerk, Mr Cas Leo, phone 788412 or call into the Council Office Monday-Wednesdays, or email townclerk@stjust.org

Best wishes

Councillors on the Team
