ABOUT THE COUNCIL A-DRO DHE’N KONSEL Camborne is geographically the largest parish in Cornwall. In many ways it reflects Cornwall as has dense urban areas, characterful villages and sparsely populated rural areas of outstanding natural beauty. The Council administers a parish which comprises of approximately 2,800 hectares and nearly 23,000 people live within the boundaries which include the villages of Troon, Beacon, Brea, Kehelland, Penponds and Barripper.

All Camborne Town Council and Committee meetings are open to the public and we always welcome people to attend. We include a limited time on each agenda for the public to be able to participate so your views can be considered in the decisions that the Council takes. This is your chance to ask the Council questions or make us aware of things that are important to you. There are Government regulations which aim to help local government to be more open and transparent. In view of these regulations the Council adopted a policy which allows any person present to film, photograph or make an audio recording of the meeting. Please note that whilst every effort is taken to ensure that members of the public are not filmed at a meeting, we cannot guarantee this, especially if you are taking an active role.

Members were appointed to Committees and as representatives to organisations outside Camborne Town Council. The Council also confirmed its eligibility to hold the General Power of Competence under the 2011 Localism Act and adopted the Power accordingly. This ensures the Council is acting legally in respect of some aspects of Devolution from Cornwall Council.

basis for the Forward Plan which details the activities necessary to achieve the Council’s aims and objectives which in turn inform the targets set for employees through the appraisal system. This can be termed the ‘golden thread’ for performance management. The Council’s first Corporate Plan was developed in 2014 for the period 2015-2018.

Val was delighted to present the annual town plaque awards to residents of the parish for their outstanding contributions to the community. These were: the 1st Camborne Scout Group in recognition of 100 years providing youth facilities and activities; Major John Holmes MBE for his service to the Camborne branch of the Royal British Legion and Mrs Marie Splatt for her dedicated voluntary work for Centenary Chapel. The Mayor’s award was made to Mr George Gunn for his many years’ voluntary service and dedication to Centenary Arts Club.

A review of the Corporate Plan 2015-2018 revealed that there have been significant changes in a comparatively short time. The Council’s establishment had grown, its budget has increased and devolution projects had been the focus of activity. In June 2017 the Council re-considered priorities against this context and set the following priorities for a revised Corporate Plan 2018 – 2021:

Mr Stuart Odgers and Mr Alan Sanders were recognised with town plaques for their long service on the Town Council and a special award was given to Councillor Colin Godolphin for his 30 years’ service to Camborne Town Council and other local organisations. Mr Philip Godolphin presented the Sid Godolphin Youth Achievement Award to Gregory Eastman, a student at Penponds School. Certificates of Achievement were awarded to Haydn Uren and Harley Collick. The meetings were extremely well attended by the public who heard an informative talk from Mr Matthew Wills, 3HW Architecture and Design about the plans to repair and restore the Passmore Edwards Library building.

Civic Service The sun shone when the Mayor held her Civic Service on 3rd September 2017 at Camborne Church. The event was attended by the Chairman of Cornwall Council, Mayors and Chairman from other Towns and Parishes as well as representatives from a wide range of organisations representing many interests and concerns across the parish.

• The successful transfer of ownership or management of green spaces from Cornwall Council; • The implementation of green space services • The development of a programme for improvement and investment in green spaces; • The successful transfer of the Passmore Edwards library building; • Completion of the library building refurbishment works to meet the scheduled move of the Town Council offices in May 2018; • The transfer of the library service; • Communication, consultation and engagement with local residents, organisations and community groups; • The Local Government Boundary Review in Cornwall; • Managing change to facilitate training, development and welfare; • Implementation of recommendations resulting from the review of the staffing structure; • Implementation of systems and procedures to ensure compliance with the General Data Protection Regulations 2018..

Devolution The church was packed with people who heard an address by the Reverend Canon Olive Stephens about UNICEF followed by Mr David Oates’ recital of the poem ‘Refugees’. All monies collected were donated to UNICEF which is a cause very close to the Mayor’s heart. Following the service, an excellent buffet reception was provided for everyone in the Church Hall.

The Corporate Plan The Corporate Plan sets out the Council’s vision and priorities over a three year period. This provides the

Town and Parish Councils in Cornwall have been asked to take responsibility for many local services facing cuts by Cornwall Council due to the major financial savings it needs to make. Camborne Town Council responded to the challenge; a Working Group comprising of the Mayor, Deputy Mayor and Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Finance & General Purposes Committee, Planning & Development Committee and Amenities Committee met every month in order to help devolution progress. The municipal year 2017/2018 saw some of these complex projects come to fruition following many years hard work. A summary of progress over the past 12 months is provided below.

Cllr. Mrs V E Dalley (left) and Town Clerk, Amanda Mugford, inspect the new signage at Camborne Recrration Ground.

Green spaces The Council’s devolution proposal for green spaces was driven by the poor maintenance standards and neglect of playing fields, play areas and parks across the parish. Environmental searches, mining searches, invasive species surveys, tree surveys and play equipment inspections were carried out on all sites identified for devolution. This process of due diligence resulted in a number of problems being identified and devolution being split in to two phases.

The Amenities team has carried out the following work at the park section since ownership transferred: • Dead and diseased trees have been removed • Boundary Cornish hedges repaired • Play equipment cleaned • Wooden benches repaired and re-varnished • A new improved grass cutting regime was implemented in April.

Progress on Phase One sites to date is as follows: GWARIDIR KAMMBRONN (CAMBORNE RECREATION GROUND) Cornwall Council chose to split Camborne Recreation Ground between the park area and the rugby pitch which it identified as ‘strategically important’. Ownership of the park section transferred to the Town Council in December 2017 at the same time as the leasehold transfer for a term of 99 years and one day for the rugby pitch section. Camborne Town Council intends to continue to pursue the freehold transfer of the rugby pitch section of the Recreation Ground in the future. In the meantime, we are pleased to have obtained greater security for the ground and have approved a new lease for a term of ninety nine years at a peppercorn rent to Camborne RFC. This lease was also completed in December 2017. We look forward to working with the Club to use the whole site for the greater benefit of the local community.

GWARIDIR AN TANSES (BEACON RECREATION GROUND) Ownership of Beacon Recreation Ground also transferred to the Town Council in December 2017. This enabled us to offer a new long lease to Beacon Cricket Club on similar terms to the lease given to Camborne RFC. This will mean that the Club will be eligible to apply for many more sources of funding to improve facilities there. The new lease is expected to be signed imminently. Meanwhile, meetings have been held with the residents group ‘Friends of Beacon Park’ to plan badly needed improvements to the play and park areas. A specification is currently in the process of being drafted and will be published as an invitation to tender in the near future. Once the design and cost of the improvement works have been approved, an application will be made to Cornwall Council to draw down Section 106 monies to help fund the project.

PARK TRESULWEDHEN (TRESLOTHAN ROAD PARK), TROON Ownership of Treslothan Road Park, Troon transferred to the Town Council in December 2017. Since then, the Amenities team has carried out the following work:

• Play equipment cleaned • A new improved grass cutting regime was implemented in April.

• Dead and diseased trees have been removed • Boundary Cornish hedges repaired • Play equipment cleaned

PARK-GWARI RESKER (KING GEORGE V PLAYING FIELD) The environmental searches recommended further assessment and a mining survey commissioned. The mining survey recommended mining investigations due to the presence of mining features. Cornwall Council declined to give permission for these investigations. At the time of this report, no further progress has been made with Cornwall Council with regard to the future of this site.

PARK GERRY (PARK ROAD PLAYING FIELDS) Ownership of Park Road Playing Fields transferred to the Town Council in December 2017. Since then, the Amenities team has carried out the following work: • Dead and diseased trees have been removed; • Broken fences have been removed or repaired and new fences installed; • A new improved grass cutting regime was implemented in April.

• Shrubs have been cleared extensively • A new improved grass cutting regime was implemented in April. Progress on Phase Two sites to date is as follows: BOILERWORKS/TREVERNO ROAD PLAYING FIELD The environmental searches recommended further assessment of this site and a further mining survey was carried out. This survey recommended mining investigations due to the presence of several mining features. The mining investigations were commissioned and carried out at the end of April 2017 and a full report was received. The Council was extremely concerned by the findings of the investigation and immediately wrote to Cornwall Council requesting that the site be made safe and remediation works carried out. A significant area of Japanese Knotweed has been identified at this site and negotiations are continuing regarding the future management of this invasive species. At the time of this report, no further progress has been made with Cornwall Council.

PENGEGON PLAYING FIELD PENGEGON ALLOTMENTS All searches were completed and legal contracts agreed with the exception of the land where the Scout Hall is located. An issue regarding the longstanding sewerage arrangements at the Hall was raised and Cornwall Council promised to confirm, in writing, that this would not represent any liability to the Town Council. This assurance was not received so an indemnity was requested in order to enable transfer to be completed. To date this has not been agreed by Cornwall Council.

MENETH ROAD PUBLIC OPEN SPACES All searches were completed and the legal contracts agreed. These open spaces are on the same land registry title as the Pengegon allotments and the Scout Hall; transfer has not been completed as Cornwall Council has failed to provide an indemnity on the Scout Hall sewerage arrangements.

Progress on the transfer has been delayed due to Cornwall Council being unable to provide information about the Community Building it intends to construct on the playing field. It has been unable to confirm the future ownership of the building, responsibilities for maintenance and management or the effect on the use of the playing field both during and after construction. It is understood that Cornwall Council is undertaking a ‘scoping exercise’ following which it will be in a position to provide more information. Japanese Knotweed has been identified in the play area; this will be included in future negotiations.

GRENVILLE GARDENS, TROON The environmental searches recommended further assessment of this site and a further mining survey was carried out. This survey recommended mining investigations due to the presence of several mining features. The mining investigations were

The Council was extremely concerned by the findings of the investigation and immediately wrote to Cornwall Council requesting that the site be made safe and remediation works carried out. A very large area of Japanese Knotweed has been identified at this site and negotiations are continuing regarding the future management of this invasive species.

Camborne Library Negotiations on the terms of an Agreement for the Town Council to take responsibility for providing the library service in Camborne for a fixed term of 25 years continued and the Agreement was approved in July 2017. Ownership of the Passmore Edwards Library building transferred to the Town Council in September 2018.

Restoration work begins at the Passmore Edwards Building.

FIELDS IN TRUST The Council resolved in September 2016 that all green spaces transferred to its ownership would be dedicated as Fields in Trust. This dedication will protect freehold sites for recreation in perpetuity; leasehold sites will be protected for at least 99 years. This protection goes beyond the town and country planning system to ensure that everyone has access to a space for healthy, recreational activity, including sport and play. The Council was pleased that the Cornwall Council Cabinet agreed to the dedication of the rugby pitch section of Camborne Recreation Ground for the term of the lease (99 years). Fields in Trust has been providing legal protection for playing fields, play space, recreation grounds and other open spaces since formation as the National Playing Fields Association in 1925. As each green space has been transferred a deed of dedication is being completed to provide this protection to our green spaces. In April 2018 the Council agreed, following consultation with Camborne RFC, to apply for Camborne Recreation Ground to be designated a Centenary Field commemorating the centenary of World War I. The Council was delighted to be invited by Fields in Trust to take part in the launch of a national programme to target physical activity and will be progressing this at Park Gerry (Park Road Playing Fields) in 2018.

VEOR RFC Veor RFC lost its ground due to the need for additional school places at Rosemellin School. A temporary home at the Memorial Ground (the former Camborne School of Mines pitch) was provided by Camborne RFC but this arrangement will cease at the end of the 2017/2018 season. Meetings have been held with members of Veor RFC and other agencies to help Veor find a new home. The Council is hopeful that a solution may be found and has offered a five year lease at a peppercorn rent for a pitch at Park Gerry (Park Road Playing Fields). It is hoped that a permanent home for the Club will be found by the end of the lease.

THE PASSMORE EDWARDS LIBRARY BUILDING The building is Grade II listed and an important landmark in Camborne’s architectural heritage. It had, unfortunately, suffered from many years of neglect and extensive repair and refurbishment works were needed to make it safe and fit for purpose. Amongst the external works needed were: replacing the roof, renewal/repair of leadwork, overhaul of fascias and rainwater goods, replacement, repair and redecoration of doors and windows, repair/ repointing of stonework. A tendering process was conducted and R G Kellow Ltd was appointed contractor in September 2017; works started at the beginning of October 2017. Tenders for other aspects of the management aspects including cleaning, security, utilities, window cleaning, telephony and ICT systems were also advertised and awarded to various companies. Inspections were carried out by surveyors and others in advance of the building works and a budget was set accordingly. Whilst all parties acted with diligence, the scope of the works needed did not become fully apparent until all areas of the building had been opened up. It was evident that the real condition of

the building had been covered up by the way it had been repaired and maintained by Cornwall Council over many years. Structural problems due to historic water ingress and water penetration had never been addressed and the extent of the repairs increased substantially. The Town Council wrote to Cornwall Council in April 2017 requesting a further financial contribution towards the extra repair costs. The extent of the building work meant that the building had to be closed during the construction period. During this time a temporary library was provided at the Cornwall Council One Stop Shop, Dolcoath Avenue. The library will re-open at the Passmore Edwards building once the repairs and refurbishment have been completed. This is estimated to be in June 2018. The works being undertaken are sympathetic to the existing structure and are designed to ensure it is protected for future generations. In recognition of the building’s landmark status, the contractor R G Kellow Ltd was keen to involve the local community in the project. Children from all the Primary Schools in the parish were invited to decorate and sign a (reclaimed Cornish) slate to be used on the roof to record another chapter in the building’s history. Councillors and Council staff were also involved in the project. The Council also commissioned a local photographer to take pictures throughout the works in order to provide a permanent historic record.

grant funding from external organisations. Completion of the final agreement was delayed due to the Produce Association making an application for charitable status. This status was approved in March 2018 and we look forward to signing the new lease in the very near future.

Governance Camborne Town Council was pleased to report that it had been given a clean bill of health by the Audit Commission. The Commission reviewed the Council’s financial management for the year ending 31st March 2017 and found no cause for concern or any other matters for attention. As part of its ongoing review of policies, the Council reviewed and adopted the following policies and procedures during 2017/2018: • Employer Discretionary Policies relating to the Local Government Pension Fund • Investment Strategy • Health and Safety Policy • Environmental Policy • Consultation and Community Engagement Policy • Mayoral Protocol and Allowance • Financial Regulations

The Council rents its current offices in Basset Road and will move to the Passmore Edwards building during the summer of 2018. A grand opening is planned to take place in the autumn. THE LIBRARY SERVICE Work has been progressing towards the transfer of the service; opening hours will remain the same. Following an extensive consultation process, Library staff will transfer to the Town Council which will be responsible for all associated costs (pay, employers NIC, pensions). Cornwall Council will continue to provide the book stock and IT systems so that the service is ‘joined up’ over the whole of Cornwall.

Allotments Camborne Town Council has owned the allotment land at Enys Road since 1985. The allotments are managed by the Camborne Produce Association and the terms of the agreement have not changed since ownership of the land was transferred to the Town Council from Kerrier District Council. A review of the agreement found that it was no longer fit for purpose and in many ways restricted the Produce Association. The Council, therefore, approved a new agreement which will provide the Association with a 25 year lease and enable it to manage its own affairs. The length of the lease is hoped to help the Association be eligible for

• Standing Orders • Scheme of Delegation South West Councils also reviewed the Council’s existing policies and found them all fit for purpose.

New Visual Identity Local government in Cornwall has changed dramatically since 2009. During the last few years the Town Council has grown tremendously and this growth will continue as it takes responsibility for delivering more services. Councillors recognised that many people are confused about who does what and wanted everyone to easily recognise when the Town Council is providing a service. Our new visual identity is a strong, contemporary brand using the Camborne crest designed to reflect and project the central aspirations and professional standing of the Council in the community; distinct from other service providers. In line with the Council’s Cornish language policy, the new design features prominent placement of the Cornish language and champions its use in a relevant and meaningful way across the full range of our communications. Key words in Cornish with an English translation are used to help identify, reinforce and promote some of the core values embraced by the Council. These values provide the foundations to our policies and the ethos behind the services we provide.

New signs were erected at all the entrances to the parks and playing fields transferred to our ownership. The signs are designed to clearly show the location of all facilities at each site, include the post code so emergency services can easily find each location and the Town Council’s contact details to report any problems. The new design has also been incorporated in the Amenities Team workwear so you can clearly distinguish us from other organisations such as Cornwall Council and Cormac Solutions. There has been a phased approach to rolling out the new look which will continue throughout 2018/2019. The Trevithick Day Committee decided to use the same colours with the Town Crest for their new street decorations for Trevithick Day 2018.

booking system for events. This will be progressed in the next municipal year.

Universal Credit The Council wrote to George Eustice MP to express concerns about the full roll out of Universal Credit and to request that a number of problems be addressed. Alok Sharma MP, Minister of State for Employment, replied in March 2018 detailing the measures that had been taken to improve the system of Universal Credit.

Consultations Local Government Boundary Commission review In June 2017 the Boundary Commission consulted on proposed new boundaries for all Cornwall Council divisions. The council set up a Working Group and in July the Council agreed a response that it would be unlikely that 87 Councillors would be able to take decisions effectively depending on the governance arrangements at Cornwall Council. Any reduction in the current number of elected representatives would need to be accompanied by strong governance arrangements and a review of the role of Town and Parish Councils in Cornwall. These measures would minimise the risks and maximise the potential for effective and convenient local government with greater engagement with local communities. In January 2018, Cornwall Council approved a reduction to 87 divisions; these will be confirmed by the Boundary Commission in the autumn. A review of all Town and Parish boundaries will follow; these are anticipated to be based on the new Cornwall Council divisions and will be likely to result in a reduction in the number of parishes. This Council will continue to make strong representations during the consultation period. We have also confirmed that we would be willing to work with neighbouring parishes to consider a joint response. All boundary changes will be implemented for the local government elections in May 2021.

Management of Commercial Square BID Camborne approached the Council regarding the management of Commercial Square as problems had been experienced booking the Square for organised events. The Council owns the fountain and a small area of land in the Square which includes the electricity supply. It has been pleased to allow BID Camborne and many other community groups to use the electricity supply; these include the Produce Market and Churches Together. The majority of the land is designated public highway and is owned by Cornwall Council as the Highways Authority. We have written to Cornwall Council regarding the management of the Square and have offered to operate a simple

A summary of the consultations considered by the Council is listed below: • Local Government Boundary Commission Electoral Review • DCLG Consultation on the Disqualification Criteria for Local authority Members • National Association of Local Councils’ response to the Local Government Finance Settlement 2018/2019 • Registration of the Cornish Choughs Inn, Camborne, as an Asset of Community Value

Working with partners The Council is one of the founding members of the West Cornwall CCTV Management Group and has received quarterly performance reports from Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service on the provision of Public Realm CCTV in the town centre. Councillors from each of the Town Council wards are members of the Police Liaison Group and have raised many issues concerning crime and public safety through this forum. The Town Clerk and Councillor Wilkins took an active role in the West Cornwall CCTV Management Group and attended quarterly meetings as far as possible. The Council pledged to use the Camborne Regeneration Forum to build a better working relationship with BID Camborne and will consider nominating a Member as a representative on the BID Board should the BID Articles of association be changed to enable this to happen. The Council received quarterly reports from Cornwall Council’s Community Network Manager, Charlotte Coldwell, as well as presentations from Cornwall Film Festival, Ms J Phillips (Groundworks Trust) and Ms H Fearnley (Cornwall Council Green Infrastructure for Growth Project). Councillors have represented the Council on a large number of community groups as well as Cornwall wide organisations. We look forward to continuing our good relationships and strong working links with all our partners for the benefit of everyone living in the parish.

THE AMENITIES COMMITTEE AN KESSEDHEK KOMODYTYS Chairman: Councillor M Champion | Vice Chairman: Councillor M Pearce Councillors: J Barclay, J P Collins, T Dalley, Ms Z Fox, C Godolphin, R Goodman, D Wilkins. (Cllr Mrs Dalley ex officio).

Public Realm During 2017/2018 the Amenities Committee oversaw a work programme that included continued improvements to the public realm. Camborne is one of very few towns in the UK that still has a fully operating fountain as many are now only used on special occasions, if at all. There is a regular maintenance and monitoring programme to make sure that the fountain continues to work well and the water is safe. In March 2018 the Committee approved the purchase of a new UV water filtration system which means that chemicals no longer have to be used to treat the water. Consequently there is less potential for chemicals to be released into the surrounding environment. During the past year there have, unfortunately, been continued instances of vandalism as foaming substances have been added to the water. These instances were reported to the police and the CCTV monitoring system used to identify the culprits. The public have been kindly asked to be careful not to drop any litter, coins, soap suds or food for the birds in the fountain as this can affect the chemical content of the water. When this happens we have to shut the fountain down, drain it and clean it; this can be very expensive. The refurbishment of all the wooden slats on the Town Council owned seating in the town centre and wider parish was completed during the winter of 2017. The metal frames of the seats were addressed in the winter of 2018 and have been treated for rust and repainted. The granite installations and sculptures in the town centre have been pressure washed all these without using harmful cleaning chemicals to minimise the environmental impact. This included the parish’s war memorials, historic monuments and commemorative benches. The Town Trail posters have also been cleaned. Ownership of the Town council’s bus shelters was transferred to Cornwall Council in March 2018 who will now be responsible for maintaining them. It is their intention to install two new bus shelters in the town; one at Treswithian Road and the other closer to the town centre. The noticeboard which was outside the Passmore Edwards library was re-located to Kehelland to provide a dedicated facility for Council business.

When the Council moves to its new offices, the noticeboard currently outside the Basset Centre will be moved to a location outside the library. It will complement the existing black iron street furniture at The Cross (unlike the previous one which was wooden). The red telephone boxes in Barripper, Bolenowe and Penponds were all thoroughly cleaned and regular maintenance took place (e.g. replacement of broken glass etc.) The Council has continued its regular maintenance programme of the Town Clock by the Cumbria Clock Company. Our thanks to JD Wetherspoon for allowing us access to this important heritage landmark to keep it maintained and running on time.

Camborne in Bloom Camborne Town Council always does its best to make the town a lovely place to be during the summer by providing flowers which are watered and maintained by our Amenities Team. All these floral displays are heavily subsidised by the Council. Last year numbers of floral units ordered remained the same as during 2016/2017 and provided a lovely display. Any surplus units were allocated to Camborne Church, Centenary Chapel, The Donald Thomas Centre and Wesley Chapel where they were very much enjoyed. The sponsored planters continued to be popular and three additional planters were provided in 2017; six new selfwatering hanging baskets were ordered for the 2018 display. The Council initiated a pilot scheme for winter planters; however, despite the plants being carefully selected, they were unsuccessful. The Council would like to thank all organisations and businesses that contributed to the display and help us make an attractive environment for everyone using the town centre. We continue to fund the maintenance and planting of the flower beds in Treswithian Road and the ‘Welcome to Camborne’ bed by the Premier Inn.

Footpaths and Grass cutting The Committee accepted the terms of the agreements with Cornwall Council for Camborne Town Council to continue maintaining the footpaths in the parish and cutting the grass verges at Treswithian, Killivose and


C A M B OR N E TOW N C OU N C I L

Croft Common, Newton Road, Troon, Roseworthy Hill and the Bell Lake/Coombe crossroad. The verge at Treswithian Road and Memorial verge at Troon are cut on a regular maintenance schedule while the verges at the other locations are managed to encourage pollinators and wildflowers. The schedule for cutting footpaths across the parish incorporates a programme of footpath inspections with paths linked to schools being treated as a priority. This has resulted in the reporting of instances of fence damage, fly tipping and path obstruction by overhanging trees. These were reported to Cornwall Council to rectify. Where there was an immediate risk of injury to footpath users, the team removed the hazard and reported the incident to Cornwall Council / CORMAC for follow-up action. This programme also included instances where issues relating to footpaths/ fly tipping across the parish have been reported to the Town Council by residents

Rest Room Community Toilet Scheme Camborne Town Council launched its ‘Rest Room’ Community Toilet Scheme in August 2015 in Commercial Square, Camborne. The Rest Room scheme is a partnership where participating businesses allow the public to use their toilet facilities without charge and in return are paid an annual fee by the Town Council. The aim is to provide good quality toilet facilities with extensive opening hours in a range of locations. Councillors have been delighted with the response from the business community in Camborne which has enabled toilet facilities for everyone to be provided across the town centre despite Cornwall Council closures of public toilets. In 2017 we welcomed Scallywags, which includes a baby changing station in its facilities, to the Rest Room scheme. All our signs were updated accordingly.

Public conveniences at Camborne Recreation Ground The Council kept the public conveniences at the Recreation Ground open daily during the winter months as well as the summer to provide an improved service to residents using the park. The Town Council recognized the needs of everyone using the ground, from families with young children to the elderly and wanted to ensure this vital service was provided there. The toilets transferred to our ownership in December 2017 and we will continue to provide this service. A specification of works to repair the building has been prepared and the tender will be awarded in 2018.

Children’s Christmas Lantern Parade Last year’s annual Christmas Lantern Parade took place on Tuesday 19th December. This much loved event is a great favourite with young and old alike and never fails to bring the whole community together to celebrate the Christmas festivities with light, music and a lot of fun! The parade has grown from strength to strength each year with children from Camborne Nursery school, Penponds C P School, Rosemellin C P School, St John the Baptist R C School, Roskear Primary and Nursery School, St Meriadoc Nursery and Infant Academy, St Meriadoc Junior Academy, Trevithick Learning Academy, Troon C P School and Weeth C P School all taking part. Each school made its own large lantern to accompany the smaller ones. They truly excelled themselves as the lanterns were spectacular. The musical fun came from up to 70 players in the Combined Schools Samba Band as well as the Camborne Boys and Girls Brigades. There truly was a carnival atmosphere!

The parade left St Meriadoc Infant and Nursery School at 6.30pm and followed its traditional route through the Town Centre but this year ended at the Church. The Amenities team successfully completed all the tasks associated with traffic management for the parade which spanned three days to complete the collection, preparation, distribution and retrieval of all signs, cones and sand-bags required for the safe operation of the event. The Council fully covers the cost of all the professional marshalls, entertainment, St John Ambulance as well as contributing £300 to each school to help with the cost of the lanterns. This has become a very special event that is dear to the hearts of people across the parish as children from all (except one) local primary schools take part. The Council would like to thank everyone who participates and helps make the evening more memorable each year. Special thanks to Mrs Linda Stephens, Head Teacher of St Meriadoc Infants School for her continued help and support.

Christmas Lights In 2016 the Town Council was approached by Camborne Parish Church with a request to borrow a number of the old lights fixtures for a display in the grounds of the church to complement the Christmas Tree festival inside. This arrangement was renewed in 2017 with £250 contributed towards the cost of ongoing repairs and safety checks. The old lights are unique in that they were produced to reflect Camborne’s distinct heritage as well as the Christmas story. The display during the Christmas period was stunning and has been greeted with much joy by local residents.

CCTV The Council has a seven year contract in a partnership with Truro City Council, Hayle, Helston, Redruth, Penzance, Falmouth and Penryn Town Councils to provide monitored public realm CCTV. Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service provide the monitoring service from the new Fire Centre at Tolvaddon. The Council also pays for the ongoing maintenance, repair and replacement of the cameras as necessary. The cameras in Camborne are recording and being monitored with quarterly performance reports provided to the Council. The police have found the new improved quality of the images extremely helpful, not just in solving crime but also in identifying vulnerable people who may be at risk. We will continue to work closely with the police to ensure that monitoring is being provided at optimum times to help improve public safety

The Spinney The Spinney is an important green space in the town centre which is managed by a small group of volunteers that make up the Spinney Doorstep Green charity. In November 2017 the Amenities team helped the Spinney Doorstep Green by spending a day clearing undergrowth and shrubs, making ready the path ways for new bark and undertaking an extensive litter pick.

Community Events The following grants were awarded by the Amenities Committee to fund community events in Camborne during the 2017/2018 municipal year: BID Camborne | Camborne Shopping week ......£4,500 Trevithick Day ................................................................£9,500 The Council also supports community events by providing practical help to local groups that need it. During 2017/2018 we loaned traffic cones and road signs to Troon Village Association, Trevithick Day, Portreath Parish Council for its Remembrance parade and Heartlands for Guy Fawkes celebrations. We also welcome posters and notices which we are happy to display on our noticeboards throughout the parish and include in the dedicated ‘Community Events’ section of our website.

The Budget

Policy

The Finance and General Purposes Committee was again faced with a challenge when considering the budget, precept and finances for the financial year 2018/19. The budget process for 2018/2019 was focused on the Council’s strategic priorities to ensure that resources allocated in the budget were adequate and proportionate.

The Finance and General Purposes Committee reviewed the following governance arrangements and policies during the 2017/2018 municipal year: • The Publication Scheme; • Grant Award Policy; • Risk Assessment Policy;.

The Strategic Budget Working Party, consisting of the Chairmen and Vice Chairmen of the Council’s Committees with the Mayor and Deputy Mayor, carried out the initial work which linked resource allocation to the Council’s corporate objectives. Recommendations were subsequently made to each Committee and these were considered within the context of the total budget responsibility held by that Committee. The resulting recommendations for all budget heads were considered by the Finance and General Purposes Committee to make its final recommendations to Full Council.

Community Support and Grant Aid The Council is committed to supporting and helping local community groups improve the quality of life for Camborne residents and does this by providing grants. The Council’s grants award policy ensures all grant applications are treated equally, provide value for money and that all awards are within the legal powers of the Council. Any Community Group may apply for funding towards a project that will benefit people living in the Camborne Parish.

Councillors were faced with difficult decisions as the continued receipt of grant funding to make up for the decreased revenue received as a result of the localised arrangements for Council Tax support remained uncertain.

During 2017/2018 the Council awarded numerous grants for projects of all sizes. These were as follows:

The Council, therefore, allocated the funding to earmarked reserves. This action was taken to prevent future large increases to the precept should the government stop the funding and introduce referendum principles (capping) at this tier of local government. The Committee’s recommendations were approved by Full Council in January 2018.

Camborne Cricket Club..............................................£2,500

Beacon Cricket Club....................................................£651.31 BID Camborne ..............................................................£4,500 Camborne Youth Band ..............................................£2,000 Camborne & Redruth Live at Home Scheme........£1,370 Carn Brea Leisure Centre Trust ..............................£4,000 Camborne Music Festival ..............................................£300 Camborne Show Society ............................................£1,200 Cornwall Befriending Service ......................................£500

Devolution The Finance and General Purposes Committee also undertook work associated with the devolution of services and transfer of assets from Cornwall Council. This resulted in a number of recommendations being made to Full Council regarding the terms of contracts and title transfers. It also awarded contracts for the provision of a new vehicle for green space operations as well as telephony systems, ICT systems, security (key holding and alarm response) and window cleaning at the Passmore Edwards building

Camborne RFC Mini Juniors ........................................£250 Cruse Bereavement Care..............................................£350 Drama Express..................................................................£200 Gooseberry Bush Day Nursery ....................................£100 Holman’s Sports Club ..................................................£1,500 Merlin MS Centre..............................................................£720 Piskies Explorer Scout Unit ........................................£1,500 PorthEden ........................................................................£1,000 Revitalise Respite Holidays ..........................................£250 Royal British Legion ........................................................£250

Value for Money

SPARC Sport CIC ..........................................................£1,000

New ways of working were approved in July 2017 which meant that Councillors who are not members of a Committee now receive agendas by email and not by post. This saves time, paper and postage and has proved to work well. A new supplier was approved for stationery/ office needs and the purchase/ delivery of a daily newspaper was cancelled in order to save money.

THE STAFFING COMMITTEE AN KESSEDHEK MAYNI Chairman: Councillor Mrs Valerie Dalley | Vice Chairman: Councillor C Godolphin (ex officio) Councillors: M Champion, J P Collins, Ms Z Fox, M Pearce, G Winter.

Human Resources The Committee carried out all the work involved in recruiting two new Amenities Technicians and a Committee Support Officer during 2017/2018. The Committee also ensured temporary arrangements were put in place to cover the two-month absence of the Town Clerk due to illness. The additional workload associated with devolution projects and subsequent impact on capacity for other work was recognised and devolution prioritised for all members of staff but particularly the Town Clerk.

A full review of the Council’s Staffing Structure will be commissioned once devolution of green spaces and the library has been completed. Performance Appraisals and six-month reviews for all members of staff were also considered by the Committee. Pay and conditions were changed in order to reward performance, increase capacity and fulfil Council policy on the Living Wage. The appraisal system was also used to identify training and development needs for all members of staff. BELOW: Camborne Town Council Amenities Team model the new branded worwear range.

A programme of training and development activities was provided for all Councillors following the local government elections in May 2018. This included the following:

Health and Safety was identified as a priority for the Council several years ago. All aspects of Health and Safety were actively monitored during 2017/2018 with particular emphasis on premises and staff activities. In November a comprehensive General Risk Assessment to assess the ongoing health and safety compliance and management of Camborne Town Council was conducted by Ellis Whittam. A Health and Safety Action Plan was produced as a result of the Assessment and the following action taken:

• An evening bus tour of the parish; • An evening tour of the Passmore Edwards library building; • A tour of the CCTV monitoring suite at the Cornwall Fire & Rescue Service Centre at Tolvaddon for all Councillors on the Amenities Committee with an invitation to all other Councillors to attend;

• Improved working practices introduced regarding vehicle keys

• A training day provided with the Cornwall Association of Local Councils to include an introduction to Camborne Town Council, the Code of Conduct, an introduction to local government finance, Chairmanship and Standing Orders.

• Risk Assessments for mower operations reviewed

• The purchase of e-learning licences from Cornwall Council for all Councillors

• Risk Assessments reviewed with regard to lone working

Both hold NEBOSH Certificates. Overall a very positive safety culture was found with obvious commitment to continue this. Staff awareness and training was also found to be very good with staff also showing a strong commitment to maintain high standards.

THE PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE AN KESSEDHEK TOWLENNANS HA DISPLEGYANS Chairman: Councillor Jeff Collins | Vice Chairman: Councillor Colin Godolphin Councillors: Mrs V Dalley, Ms Z Fox, V Kelynack, L Lemon, R Marshall, J Morgan, G Winter.

Planning Applications During 2017/2018 the Planning and Development Committee considered 193 planning applications; a slight increase on the previous year when 186 were considered. Amongst the notable applications considered last year were developments at rear of

Fore Street (Troon), land at Fore Street Barripper, Boilerworks Road, Kerrier Way and Gurneys Lane (Camborne). The Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Committee attended Cornwall Council Planning Committee meetings to represent the view of the community when required.

Future investment for infrastructure improvements Neighbourhood Plans were introduced by the Government under the Localism Act and can enable Town and Parish Councils to receive funding of 25% from the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) in the Local Plan. In Camborne, Pool and Redruth there is no Community Infrastructure Levy so Councils in this area will not be able to directly receive this funding. The Council is very concerned that Camborne (and surrounding area) will miss out on vital improvements to local infrastructure as Cornwall Council has still not decided how CIL funding collected throughout Cornwall will be distributed. The lack of CIL in Camborne will mean that, unless a ‘Section 106’ clause is successfully attached to a Planning permission, there will not be any funding that the Town Council can access for improvements in play areas, playing fields and other green spaces. The Council wrote to Cornwall Council to request an immediate review of the Community Infrastructure Levy and Section 106 processes with the aim of making Section 106 funds already held by Cornwall Council more easily accessible to Town and Parish Councils. The Council also wrote to the Secretary of State to express its concern about the lack of funding for vital infrastructure that would result in Camborne from the Cornwall Council CIL charging Schedule. Despite our firm representations the Charging Schedule was approved; the Council has written again to Cornwall Council regarding the allocation of Cornwall CIL funding to areas in a zero charge zone and requested robust monitoring of both CIL and Section 106 funds. Carn Brea Parish Council has supported this Council’s stance on the issue as have all Cornwall Council Division members in Camborne.

Parking and Highways The Planning and Development Committee remained concerned about increasing difficulties with parking and highway safety. Following its request to Cornwall Council in 2016 it wrote again in 2017 to request a review of parking in the town. This request was unsuccessful. In October 2017 the Committee considered potential traffic improvements at the intersection of Park Holly and Treswithian Road and recommended the installation of bollards in the roadside parking area outside Treswithian Stores as its preferred option.

Promoting our culture The Council is frequently consulted by developers for names for streets on new developments. Councillors always consider the history of the area and try to reflect the parish’s rich cultural heritage when making suggestions. Camborne Town Council fully supports

Cornwall Council’s street naming guidance that there should be a presumption in favour of: • Street names that refer to local historical heritage, natural or landscape features of the local area; • Street names in Kernewek, which are encouraged in line with the European Charter for Regional & Minority Languages. In September 2017 the Committee made recommendations to Cornwall Council that the street names for new addresses in Higher Pengegon should be: Rosva an Arlodhes (Lady’s Drive) or Rosva Arlodhes Basset (Lady Basset’s Drive) and Lowarth Hutton (Hutton’s Garden).

Pendarves Woods In September 2017 the Committee received an application to remove 12.4 hectares of land at Pendarves Woods from the Common Land Register. Cornwall Council’s Commons and Greens Officer advised that: • Central government had acknowledged in the Commons Act 2006 that mistakes had been made under the previous Act; • Any Representation must be supported by legal evidence as the basis for an objection; • Evidence that the land met the definition of ‘land subject to rights of common; wasteland of a manor; town or village green within the meaning of the 1965 as originally enacted; or, land of a description specified in section 11 of the Inclosure Act 1845 (c.118) was needed. • Use of the land since 1968 was irrelevant; evidence would have to be put forward regarding its use preregistration; • In the event that Representations were made against the application an Oral Hearing would have to be provided; • In the event the land was removed from the Common Land Register it would remain access land under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 until the maps were reviewed (this was supposed to occur every 10 years but had not yet been done); • In order to remain access land when the maps were reviewed it must be Mountain, Heath, Down or Moor. Councillors were extremely concerned that that the land could be removed from the Common Land Register due to its importance both to local people and as a habitat to rare species. It was, however, noted that the land did not fulfil the criteria necessary to meet the definition of the various types of land that met the Commons Act requirements. The application was, therefore, received with much regret.

Brownfield register In November 2017 the Committee was consulted regarding two sites in the Roskear ward being included in Cornwall Council’s Brownfield Register. The Council had no objection to the inclusion of both sites on the Register as it viewed them as suitable for residential development in accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework. It advised Cornwall Council that there were historic issues regarding mining features and contaminated land in this part of Camborne that could have a negative impact on viability and also raised concerns about any additional development in the vicinity of Boilerworks Road and North Roskear Road. The concerns were: serious highway safety issues due to the narrowness of the roads and volume of traffic, capacity at Rosemellin Primary School which was over-subscribed and the poor quality of Public Open Space in the area. The Council also requested that Section 106 conditions should be attached to any planning permission for either site with contributions to be towards Education and Public Open Spaces. The Council also requested that Highway safety should be addressed to ensure that the necessary infrastructure was in place to make any additional development sustainable.

Public Realm In April 2018 the Committee considered proposals from Cormac Ltd for a new bus shelter to be situated in Church Street, Camborne. This part of Camborne is the historic heart of the town and the church is a Grade 1 listed building so is of national importance. The Council made the following response: • Any shelter would have to be of high quality design to successfully fit the historic environment of this location. The Camborne Town Centre Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Strategy states the following principle on street furniture “Standard catalogue items should be avoided in favour of designs which echo (and re-interpret) local traditions and which complement their setting”. • There is an issue regarding clutter at this location which detracts from the historic environment. The strategy already quoted states that “Care should be taken that new street furniture does not create intrusive visual clutter. The impact of these items on views along the street and on the setting of a Conservation Area and its buildings should be routinely considered. An excess of commercial advertisement on street furniture – such as bus shelters - should be avoided.” • The Council believes that College Street ( just a few yards down the road) would be a better location for the new shelter both in terms of use and environmental impact. • Moving the bench would be costly.

• The proximity to licensed premises could result in an increased risk of anti-social behaviour/rough sleeping. Cornwall Council agreed to review the potential for providing a bus stop in College Street as an alternative location.

Consultations The Planning and Development Committee considered the following consultation documents last year: • Cornwall Council revised Community Infrastructure Levy Charging Schedule; • Cornwall Council Planning Policy and Guidance; • National Association of Local Councils Planning Consultation on Planning for Right Homes in the Right Places; • Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Government National planning Policy Framework Proposals;
