Update on protected trees (TPOs)


The previous map that the parish council posted of trees with Tree Protiection Orders on them was incorrect. It included applications that had not been confirmed. However, Cornwall Council provide a detailed and 'live' map of protected trees.

It is available on this link ... http://www.cornwall.gov.uk/environment-and-planning/planning/planning-advice-and-guidance/trees/

Majority of traffic entering and leaving Grampound exceed 30 MPH speed limit

The results of two speed surveys conducted by CORMAC are now available for Grampound.

The first study is at the western (Fal river) end of Grampound on the A390 which shows the majority of cars exceeding the speed limit as they (presumably) slow in to the village but the vast majority exceeding the limit as they accelerate out.

Traffic speed in Grampound

The results of a community survey of attitudes towards traffic speed in Grampound with Creed are now available.

Views could not be much clearer.

There was strong agreement that speed is a problem in Grampound and that current measures in place were insufficient.

The community also asked the parish council to investigate ways of installing an average speed camera system on Fore Street. At its December 2015 meeting the parish decided to pursue this option first.

The first of Grampound’s Defibrillators is ready for use!

Close up of the AED at Grampound Community Hall

The installation of the defibrillator, which has been organised by the Grampound WI and funded by Grantscape, is now complete and it is ready for use, if or when it is needed.  It is situated on the north wall of the Community Hall behind the bikeshed - it is the wall nearest to the school.  It was necessary to install it there where it will not be effected by direct sunlight!
