School Keep Clear Marking Consultation. Public Meeting 2 November 2017

In April 2016, Department for Transport legislation came into force to enable local authorities to make School Keep Clear markings mandatory. This requires the installation of signage and the correct lining. At the same time it is proposed to create a Traffic Regulation Order to prohibit vehicles stopping or waiting on the school keep clear markings At Any Time. This will enable Cornwall Council’s Civil Parking Enforcement team to carry out enforcement where resources permit. Cornwall Council is running a consultation on this that will affect parts of Hartmeade.

An Extraordinary Meeting was held on 2 November 2017. Minutes from that meeting can be found on the ‘Meetings’ page of this website or you can comment yourself directly by following this link to the consultation webpage.

Menheniot Neighbourhood Development Plan 2017/18

In May 2017, the council appointed Steve Besford-Foster as project manager for the Menheniot neighbourhood plan.
