We are Menheniot. Take the survey

As part of its submission to Cornwall Council, Menheniot Parish Council would like your opinion of how it represents the needs of its residents and what you think about life in the parish. This survey opens on 9 May and will close at midnight on 2 June 2019.

There’s more background information at the start of the survey so you can be clear about what the issues are. Please take a couple of minutes to take it and speak with any of our councillors if there’s anything you don’t understand or have concerns about. You can reach them through the Clerk’s Office on 01579-342437.

Follow this link to the survey and if you would prefer a paper copy, drop us an email with your postal address and name or call into the Spar shop. Councillors will be attending the Old School coffee morning on Thursday 16 May from 10am, and all day during the European Elections on Thursday 23 May from 9am.



Community Governance Review 2019

Cornwall Council is carrying out a review of parish council boundaries. This is happening across the county, and every parish council is obliged to consult with its own residents about whether or not they want theirs changed.

Liskeard Town Council wants to change its boundary with Menheniot, along the north-western part of the parish that would include the settlements of Bolitho Farm, Island Shop, Tencreek Farm, Tencreek Cottage, Cartuther Barton and Keyes. This would take out about 590 acres of housing and farmland from Menheniot, the equivalent of about 8% of all land in the parish. You can read about their proposals in Liskeard’s Notes  here and download a map here showing the areas that might be affected (Cloak Park is not included). At the Menheniot Annual Parish Meeting held on 9 May 2019, the Liskeard Town Clerk presented this statement.

The Parish Council needs to have your opinion on the proposals, and understand how they might affect you. At it’s Annual Parish Meeting that was held on Thursday 9 May, the 40 residents who attended voted unanimously to reject Liskeard’s proposals. If you would like to receive our newsletter, send your email address to the Clerk’s Office, and we will keep you in touch with what is happening. (10/05/19)
