St Keverne Parish Council

At their first meeting of the New Year, St Keverne Parish Council discussed the proposed traveller site on Goonhilly Downs, which is currently going through the planning process. Views were expressed on both sides. The planning decision rests with Cornwall Council, which takes Parish Council advice into consideration.

Coverack Car Park

Three families have been living in Coverack's North Corner car park without permission for many years. One councillor suggested that "squatters" would be a more appropriate description than "travellers".

Proposal Supported

When it came to a vote the Parish Councillors supported the proposed traveller site on Goonhilly Downs, and the proposal for houses to be built above the Penwartha development.

St Keverne Parish Council

New sites for "Travellers"

The Parish Council supported plans to build a site for Coverack's resident "travellers". The proposal is for a new site on Goonhilly Downs with an area of hard standing for three caravans, and a septic tank. It is down a short track almost opposite to Croft Pascoe Pool.

Parish Councillors also backed a plan by Michael Tylor to build twelve houses on the edge of Coverack, four of which will be affordable.
