70. Matters Arising
(a) King Georges Field – on-going.
(b) NHP – Cllr Davey had received a copy of correspondence sent to Wadebridge Town Council from St. Breock P.C. and this was read out and copies will be circulated to Councillors. Subject to a response Councillors agreed they would consider attending a joint Meeting stating our position. Considerable discussion took place concerning the way forward for the NHP, noting the work undertaken by our Councillors, costs incurred more recently by Cornwall Council with no evidence to show for it, and the lack of communication/co-operation. At the recent Strategic Planning Committee Meeting for the Bodieve proposal the Mayor of Wadebridge had stated the NHP was ready to go ! There was also the conflict of information concerning housing numbers, with original targets seemingly being dismissed on the basis that the Network Area now had sufficient numbers ! Clarification from C.C. was needed in view of the Town Councils stated partnership with a proposed Development in Egloshayle Parish at Sladesbridge.
(c) Wi-fi/Projection – on-going
(d) Barclays Mandate – forms now complete and submitted.
(e) Code of Conduct Training – all Councillors completed.
