Parish Council And Planning

Perranuthnoe does not seem to have a representative on the parish council anymore so anyone interested in any planning notices is advised to visit St Clare.

Apparently one of the current plans is to knock down 4 Greeb Way and rebuild.

This will be for the foreseeable future as the next parish council elections due in 2011, have been postponed until 2013, to take in to account changes within Cornwall Council. That means that nearly a third of our current parish councillors are in place, unelected, for at least two and half years. Our present parish council seems to have made little attempt to make public who the new councillors are where as most other parish councils at least put a notice in the local papers stating who have been elected or seconded.

What with parish councils likely to be getting new powers under the governments ' big society' including massive changes to how planning permissions are granted, this village will have no proper say in what happens so it is up to all of us to try and keep an eye on things and if necessary make our voice heard and our opinions count.

Warning - Check You Receipts - Cash Back Scam

It has come to my attention that there is a very nasty scam going around. Apparetnly cashiers are adding cash back to purchases that people have not asked for. They then give the cash back to a friend who is in the queue behind you!

The scam involves amounts from £20 - £40 but I guess it can involve any amount, depending on what the cashiers feels he/she can get away with. So far Sainsburys have had the most incidents of this as they are one of the largest retailers but it is certainly not limited to them. This scam can be done anywhere at any store when paying by debit or credit card so please, please check your reciepts!

Stay safe everyone.
