23.3.20 Unfortunately changes are being made ‘on the hoof’ to the way refuse and recycling are being done during the COVID-19 restrictions. Currently we have advice that all normal BLACK BAG collections will take place, along with scheduled recycling and garden waste as much as capacity will allow but that the RECYCLING CENTRES have been closed.
Please do not ring if you have had your recycling collection missed; you will be on the list for the next scheduled collection run.
Within the Parish, some services are provided by the Parish Council. Guidance on these is provided within this website.

Road & Drain Clearances
If you notice accumulations of leaves, blocked drains or overflowing gullies you can contact CORMAC directly, of feel free to drop the clerk either a call or email and she will pass the concern along. You will need to be as specific as you can please when it comes to a location – if you can give a house name or number it’s really useful.
It is the responsibility of the landowner to keep hedges, especially those next to roads and footways, in reasonable order so they don’t cause obstruction to passers-by.

Potholes & Road Issues
It’s easy to report a pothole directly to Cornwall Council .. and by doing so this is logged against the roads’ permanent record upping chances of major works being undertaken. Please log your potholes – it could lead to a better road surface being installed.
Speeding & Traffic Calming
As part of an attempt to address concerns over speeding and levels of traffic through our village we had a speed survey undertaken in June 2018 by CORMAC. Unfortunately this has not assisted us in getting and reduction in speeds through our village, as there is little in their view to address.
