41. Matters Arising
(a) NHP – Report promised by end of June from W.T.C. but not received and the Town Clerk stated that no W.T.C. meeting would take place until August. Our Chairman had tried to contact the Mayor without success. All Councillors agreed this was totally unsatisfactory and lengthy discussion ensued but limited means for moving matters forward. Detailed review of position to date, including housing numbers which now seemed in conflict with the view of the new Chair of the Strategic Planning Committee. Cllr Collis reminded Cllrs of the “historical evidence” (as per the WTC website which was subsequently removed) showing incorrect reporting from the Town Council. Frustration despite the best endeavours of the Parish Council over many years.
(b) Footpath Contract- Proposed by Cllr Warne and seconded by Cllr Howard that we contact Paul Solomon to undertake usual Footpath & Bridlepath maintenance. Agreed.

42. Planning Notices
PA20/05145 – Higher Trenant – non material amendment - no objection from Parish.
PA20/03357 – Park Farm Washaway Agric. Building Extension – approved by C.C.
PA20/03504 – Land NE of Trevarner Mill – Proposed Development – refused by C.C.

(b) Glendale - Grasscutting May/June £360.00
