North Hill Parish Council

Welcome to the website organised and maintained by North Hill Parish Council, we hope you find it useful. The objective of the site is to provide information about the activities of the council and relay information and support available from Cornwall County Council.

Recent Additions - Planning Applications at Coads Green, Tolcarne and Glubhole. Community Speed Watch update. Host required for Bathpool defibrillator. Call for applications for Community Grants and volunteers needed to help plant a new hedge in North Hill.

At the parish council meeting on 6 November 2023 planning applications for properties in Coads Green, Tolcarne and Glubhole were discussed by councillors. To view the comments recorded by the Parish Council for these and previous applications, select Notice Board under the Parish Council tab. PCSO Dodds attended the meeting and confirmed that when two more volunteers are recruited he will start community speed watch training. A representative from Duchy Defibrillators also attended the meeting and demonstrated the equipment that it is proposed to install in Bathpool. The Council are looking for a volunteer to host the equipment which requires a very modest amount of electricity to prevent the apparatus from freezing. Community grants will be allocated at the next meeting of the Parish Council and organisations wishing to benefit should contact the Clerk for an application form to be submitted by midnight on Friday 24 November 2023. Children from Coads Green School will be helping to plant a new hedge generously donated by the Woodland Trust between the existing church graveyard and the play area in North Hill. This activity will start at 1000 on Wednesday 22 November 2023 and anyone willing to help should turn up at the Village Hall with spade and appropriate clothing at this time. Refreshments will be available.

Update on the closure of St Torney's Church.

The Church of England Church Commissioners have written to North Hill Parish Council with a copy of a draft Pastoral (Church Buildings Disposal) scheme prepared by the Church Commissioners providing for the preservation of the closed church of North Hill St Torney by the Churches Conservation Trust. The Churches Conservation Trust (“the Trust”) shall be responsible for the care and maintenance of the building and both old and new graveyards. The Commissioners have agreed to publish a draft Pastoral (Church Buildings Disposal) Scheme providing for the closed church of North Hill St Torney to be vested in the Churches Conservation Trust (CCT) for care and maintenance. The Commissioners statutory advisors, the Statutory Advisory Committee of the Church Buildings Council (SAC) have indicated in their early advice of 17 December 2018, that St Torney’s is of outstanding quality and of high significance overall and that the church ought to be preserved in the interests of the nation and the Church of England by vesting it in the CCT. The church is richly decorated and has some significant memorials. It is a positive and dominant feature within the street scene and wider landscape. The richness and significance of the church interior means that it would not lend itself to internal subdivision.

UPDATE (26 Sep 2022) - At a recent meeting with the Trust in the church it was revealed that St Torney's has been granted "vested church" status. With Heritage Funding of £365,000 secured, work is expected to commence shortly to prevent water ingress that is damaging the fabric of the building and some of the important monuments. There will be further meetings in the future between the Trust and the local community to plan how to breathe life into the church again.

UPDATE (12 Dec 2022) - It has been announced that two new noticeboards will be erected at the church to inform people about developments and plans for the refurbishment of St Torney's.

UPDATE (24 July 2023) - The Churches Conservation Trust organised a lunchtime drop-in session on 30 June to which approximately 50 people attended. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss how the church can be used in the future. To share your ideas about how you would like to see the church used once reopened email for a questionnaire. To share your ideas, stories and thoughts on why St Torney's church and North Hill are so special email

Between 21 and 28 October 2020, Cormac deployed a portable radar device that detects and records the speed of passing vehicles on the B3257 at Congdon's Shop to evaluate the effectiveness of recently completed traffic calming measures. The report published on 14 December 2020 shows that approximately 79% of all traffic was travelling at less than 40mph.

Rural Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme (Rural GBVS)

Gigabit-capable broadband connections offer the fastest and most reliable speeds available, and the Government is committed to a vision of a digitally connected Britain.

Homes and businesses in rural areas of the UK may be eligible for funding towards the cost of installing gigabit-capable broadband when part of a group scheme.

Rural premises with broadband speeds of less than 100Mbps can use vouchers worth £1,500 per home and up to £3,500 for each small to medium-sized business (SME) to support the cost of installing new fast and reliable connections.

Superfast Cornwall is encouraging businesses and residents that are beyond any existing superfast broadband rollout plans to apply to this scheme.

John McLeod from Bathpool has offered to co-ordinate the efforts of anyone who wishes to be involved in this scheme, please send your name and email address to
