Recent Additions - Planning for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, review of planning applications and update on new Cemetery.
The United Kingdom’s long tradition of celebrating Royal Jubilees, Weddings and Coronations with the lighting of beacons will be continued to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. Beacons will be lit throughout the United Kingdom on Thursday 2 June 2022. It is hoped that a beacon will be lit on farmland in the parish as one of over 1,500 beacons to be lit throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories. On the evening of Saturday 4 June it is hoped to hold a Barn Dance in North Hill and on the following day a Big Jubilee Lunch is being planned in Coads Green. In addition, it is proposed to give a specially minted commemorative coin to all children in the parish under the age of sixteen. Details of the coin can be viewed by selecting Notice Board under the Parish Council tab.
At the monthly meeting of North Hill Parish Council held in North Hill Village Hall on 10 January there were no new planning applications. To view the comments recorded by the Parish Council for previous applications, select Notice Board under the Parish Council tab.
On 26 November 2021, Cornwall County Council granted permission for the Parish Council to change the use of some of the playing field adjacent to the Village Hall into a new cemetery. NHPC has to begin the development before the expiration of three years from the date of this permission. Community grants are normally allocated before the end of the calendar year, however due to the large expenditure on the equipment for the North Hill playground there has been a reduced budget available. A small grant has been awarded to Coads Green Primary School.
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.
