Liskeard Town Council are holding their public meeting on Tuesday 25 June 2019 at 7.30pm where they will agree their submission to Cornwall Council. Before they do that, they will be discussing the feedback they’ve had from Menheniot (including a meeting between their Mayor and our Chair and Vice Chair on Monday 24 June). Residents from Menheniot are able to attend and speak during the 15 minute public participation section at the start of the meeting.  If you’d like to go along, their meeting will be in the council chamber at the Public Hall on West Street, PL14 6BW.

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.

Following representations to Liskeard, their proposals have been amended, and the land area and numbers of residents impacted has been reduced. You can visit their website here to download their maps and listing (20/06/19)
