Cllr Knightley had spoken to Oliver Jones concerning the double white lines on Croan Bends but no recent C.C. records indicated the previous existence of double white lines and therefore no action was to be taken.

Both Cornwall Cllrs gave updates on highway matters within Wadebridge Town and mention was made of Facebook comments concerning the proposed Ball development.

86. Matters Arising
(a) NHP – As agreed the Chairman had again written to Wadebridge Town Council but regrettably had not received a formal reply to the request for the Consultants report. A phone call from the Mayor had not been of assistance. It was noted that the Chairmans letter had also been copied to Sarah Furley, Louise Wood and St. Breock Parish Council. A further request for a response will be sent.
Councillors had a general discussion concerning the recent planning applications.
(b) CGR – the Clerk confirmed that he had submitted information as agreed at the November meeting concerning implications of the boundary change.
(c) Positive Planning Conference – unfortunately Cllr Varcoe had been unable to attend.
(d) Annual Precept – Further discussion took place, having received information about potential election costs, together with possible future expenditure. As a result of the increasing bank balance held and noting yearly allowances for contingencies, it was proposed by Cllr Warne and seconded by Cllr Eddy that the Precept remain at £6500. Agreed.
(e) St. Breock Wind Farm – Emergency Fund – Cllr Nicholas was requesting a grant for Concern Wadebridge.
87. Planning Notices
PA20/03865 – Roswyn Sladesbridge – rear extension – Revised application supported subject to the assurances given concerning highway access, water run-off and flood prevention mitigation. (Cllr Davey had declared an interest and remained muted)
PA17/03835 – Land N of Wadebridge Football Ground – 143 dwellings etc –refused by C.C.
PA20/01773 – Land at Treworder Lane – PREAPP – 205 units etc – closed advice given.
PA20/09912 – Land at Bodieve – OPP for residential development including access, 245 homes including 30% affordable, new relief road, tree planting, habitat creation etc – The consideration of this application has been considerable , we are mindful of the emerging Neighbourhood Plan and as such have considered this application in accordance with the ratified NHP as it stands at the moment policy SD04 refers, showing this area as the direction of growth of Wadebridge and not a possible amended version which does not exist at this time ,
We are supporting this application as it gives benefits to the area with regard to a link road to alleviate congestion at Penny Bryn / St Mathews Hill, Gonvena Hill, provision for affordable homes and it improves access to Bodieve Hamlet.
That said we wish to note that our support is conditional on suitable surveys on wildlife and fauna being completed and adhered to and also traffic management for the part of the development opposite the School is managed, possibly a no left turn out of the estate. We are also mindful that this is an outline application but wish that our concerns are highlighted at this early stage."
