TOWN COUNCIL BUDGET 2012 / 2013

INFORMATION TO LOCAL RESIDENTS REGARDING SETTING THE BUDGET FOR 2012/2013 FROM ST JUST TOWN COUNCIL

Each year St Just Town Council has to work out how much money it needs to raise from local residents, to meet its obligations and ambitions for the community. This amount is known as the precept and it is one of the elements of local residents’ Council Tax. This year, many people will know that Cornwall Council had proposed to put pay and display meters in our car parks in St Just and Pendeen from April 2012. Fewer may be aware that they have also told the Town Council that unless we or another organisation are willing to take over the responsibility for the toilets in Pendeen and St Just they will almost certainly close on 1 April 2012 (people will have read about proposed closures of other public toilets in the county in the Cornishman).More on this news update »TOWN COUNCIL BUDGET 2012 / 2013

Press Release on behalf of Lands End Peninsula Community Land Trust

WE WANT TO PRODUCE FOOD AT BOSAVERN FARM NOT HOUSES

The press release launching the Lands End Peninsula Community Land Trust (LEPCLT) as a registered, not-for-profit company had an unfortunate write up in the Cornishman.  To set the record straight for worried locals and the group working hard to secure the farm for the community, the Trust is not considering this as a possible site for affordable housing.  The Trust is supporting a group of enthusiastic people to obtain it for a community supported agriculture venture.More on this news update »Press Release on behalf of Lands End Peninsula Community Land Trust
