Message from highways

A393 Lanner to Treluswell - Maintenance and resurfacing workls

As part of our planned highways maintenance and resurfacing work, an overnight road closure will be in place on the A393 between Lanner and Treluswell from Monday 14th to Friday 25th March.

The road will be closed between the hours of 7.00pm and 06.00am. Outside of these times the road will be open as normal. To give our teams a safe working zone and protect road users we need to implement these measures.

We know that noise associated with night-time working can cause disruption to residents and we understand this can be frustrating. Please be assured we aim to complete the noisiest operations as early as possible and will try to minimise any impact should the works overrun due to unforeseen circumstances.

We will have marshals on site to support residents and businesses needing local access. All through traffic will need to follow the diversions in place.

Redruth Rotary Grant and Kennall Vale School

Earlier this year Ponsonooth Parish Council awarded a grant of £92 towards supplying safeguarding books called “Watch Out!” to all of the Key Stage 2 pupils in the schools within the area. 

Thanks  was given to Ponsanooth Parish Council and other monies raised by Redruth Rotary. They have also delivered the books to all of the pupils entering Key Stage 2 as the Year 3 intake in September 2021. 

The Year 6 pupils from last year have of course moved on to Year 7 and taken their books with them. 

In Addition they have supplied a copy of the accompanying game called “Mistakes and Ladders” which complements the book, to every class within Key Stage 2. 

Redruth Rotary would like to thank the Parish Council for their generosity and their faith in us to deliver this very worthwhile learning aid.

Statement from Devon and Cornwall Police: Kennall Vale Woods parking problems


The Police are aware that this year has been particularly bad in relation to the parking problems both on Cot Hill and Kennall Park.

Parking on Cot Hill itself would not constitute a parking offence as long as the cars are not blocking the road.  The Police are aware from social media that parking has been unacceptable at times and has completely blocked the road.  In these incidents the advice would be to report this matter to Police through 101.  Depending on the circumstances it could not warrant a 999 call.


The options available to the Police would be to conduct a Registered Keeper check and see the owner of the vehicle can be located.  If there is a significant obstruction to the highway (and the owner cannot be located) Police can consider arranging for the vehicle to be recovered (if proportionate). In these circumstances however, it is likely that by the time the Recovery Agent arrived the owner would have returned from their walk.  Should this be the case then Police can look at enforcing a Fixed Penalty Notice for obstructing the highway.  This is an option, but quite often in these cases people have not parked with any malice, they are just genuinely oblivious of the impact of their parking.  A lot of the time this will  result in education and words of advice being passed to the driver.  The decision on whether the driver is issued a Fixed Penalty is down to the discretion of the attending Officer, weighing up the circumstances as they are presented.


Police are not responsible for the implementation of Parking Restrictions on Cot Hill, but placing restrictions here is likely to increase the impact of the 2nd issue, and that is parking on Kennall Park.  The Police are aware that Kennall Park gets heavily congested with cars parking anywhere they can and that there have been issues with cars blocking residents driveways etc.  Social Media has also shown vehicles encroaching over people’s driveways, making it difficult to get out but not impossible.  Where a driveway is completely blocked then this matter can be reported to the Police (through 101) who would be able to make enquiries and take any actions that were reasonable and proportionate at the time.


The Police completely understand the frustrations of residents not being able to park outside their own house, but there is no given right to a dedicated ‘on road parking’ space for residents.  Therefore anyone visiting is able to park on Kennall Park (so long as they are not obstructing the highway).  Kennall Park is not unique to this issue and Police receive reports of these issues across most local Policing areas.

The Police are aware that there have been consultations with CWT, Stithians Parish Council, Highways / Cormac. From a Policing perspective we would fully support incentives that ease the parking issues within the village and would be happy to be involved in any consultation process where appropriate


24th November 2020

Statement from Parish Council: Kennall Vale Woods parking problems


The problem of car parking in the area around Kennall Vale Woods has been a long standing concern for the Parish Council.  In November 2019 the Council held a parking consultation with residents, to collect views and put forward possible solutions to parking problems in this area and other parts of Ponsanooth.  While we are aware that parking problems elsewhere in the village arise from lack of both road space and on-drive parking, the issues on Cot Hill at Kennall Vale Woods are different and arise from visitor pressures.  Put simply, the more that visitors arrive at the Woods the greater the parking pressure is.  Recent efforts to restrict parking on Cot Hill at the entrance to the Woods has simply displaced the problem to other nearby streets in the Village such as Park Road, Kenall Vale and Cot Wood.


This year has been particularly challenging due to an increase in visitors to the Woods and other visitor attractions and destinations becoming unavailable.  We are  aware of websites promoting the beauty of the Woods for visitors.  It has been said that the Woods should simply be closed for a period of time to provide a deterrent effect, however the Parish Council believes this is just a sticking plaster solution and does not offer any long term solutions.  The Woods are highly cherished locally, and provide an important recreational resource for residents of Ponsanooth, whose residents already fare less well off than our neighbouring Parishes in terms of access to the countryside through a network of rights of way.  When compared to neighbouring Parishes we have far fewer paths and trails.  Ensuring there is access to the outdoors is even more important for people's well being during 'lockdown' events.  It is not easy to enforce a system where the woods are closed to visitors arriving by car but available to Ponsanooth residents.


While the problem of parking is entirely experienced in Ponsanooth, it should be remembered that the Kennall Vale Woods is located in Stithians Parish Council area (the Woods' entrance roughly demarking the Parish boundaries).  Over the last 18 months we have written to Cornwall Council in response to their Boundary Review consultation, to seek changes to the boundaries of the parish councils so that the Woods would be located within our Parish, meaning that from a local council service perspective it would become more effective if the problem and the solution lie within the same Parish.  However despite our pleas Stithians Parish have rejected any alterations to the boundary, meaning that Cornwall Council have deferred making a decision on this request until next year at the earliest.


So, set against the above challenges in July this year the Council resolved to take a more proactive role in the issue, and a number of actions have been identified and are now being worked on:


  • Engage with adjacent landowners into the possibility of delivering a adjacent car park and entrance into the Woods;
  • Make investigations with the police and Cornwall Council on local parking restrictions on the local approach roads; 
  • Investigate the possibility of delivering short term 'emergency' visitor parking on suitable spaces in the Village, with directional signage when necessary;
  • Continue close working with the CWT to raise awareness and make informed local decisions on closure or information provision wherever necessary;
  • Raise awareness of the pressures of increased visitor numbers in the woods to Stithians Parish Council and other public bodies including our local MP;
  • Report progress back to the public on a regular basis through Parish Council meetings and on our website.


The Council believes that the delivery of a car park would provide a permanent solution to parking pressures, however this is likely in itself to give rise to a number of further challenges, such as securing access to land, then working up designs, as well as finding the cost (and maintenance) of the car park, and in all likelihood will not be delivered in the very short term.  Nevertheless the Council believes that by working closely with all concerned it is likely to identify both short term and longer term solutions to the problem.    In the meantime please continue to forward any thoughts or concerns regarding this issue to us so we can continue to build up an effective case for change.

Update on the proposed Pedestrian Island scheme for Ponsanooth, from the Transport and Infrastucture Team, Cornwall Council.


CORMAC has undertaken the additional trial holes required for the design of the scheme, but unfortunately, there is a delay, within the labs industry the official geotechnical report is expected back in around 3 weeks’ time.  Once received, the designers should be in a position to understand whether there needs to be a design review.


They will also be able to update us on the construction cost and programme, we are looking to combine this with the scheduled resurfacing scheme to minimise disruption and avoid duplication of traffic management costs.  Given the potential 3 week delay on the information and possible need to tweak the design, a meeting is due in the next 4 weeks with the Parish Council, date to be confirmed.


Regarding the widening of the footway,  we understand that this could provide an improvement for the community, however, the existing carriageway width in this area has vehicle tracking issues, and following the Road Safety Audit, it was necessary to re-align the carriageway. Due to the insufficient carriageway width, this is why, it would not be technically viable to undertake a footway widening properly.  With the new location of the bus shelter, this will provide a positive outcome, reducing the length of walk to where the existing shelter is sited.

Police alert regards a national scam - June 14

OP Fardel is Devon and Cornwall’s response to a professionally run national scam that is attempting to defraud people, many who are vulnerable due to age, out of thousands of pounds.  The offenders are tending to exhaust opportunities in one particular area of the country before moving onto another.  Within our force area Torbay has been targeted but within the past few days West Cornwall, in particularly Helston has been the focus where a number of victims have transferred money into the offenders back accounts.  Within the last 48 hours we’ve received reports of over £130000 being taken.


The MO is for the offenders to call the victims purporting to be a police officers from the MET and are investigating a crime relating to fraudulent activity on the victims bank account.  They then convince the victim to either transfer their savings into another bank account or they obtain their bank details allowing them to withdraw money.


The priority when dealing with these matters is to prevent loss, safeguard the most vulnerable members of our community and increase awareness at the earliest opportunity.


Please ensure the following initial actions are taken:

  • Ring 101 and inform the D+C Police
  • Dial 1471 from the victims landline – may reveal the caller’s number if the last call received was from the offender(s)
  • The priority is to prevent loss to the victim. ASAP establish if the victim has divulged bank detail/PIN numbers and contact banks with a view to cancelling the card/account and blocking transactions or any pending transactions. Assist with this if necessary.
  • Record details of the victim phone number and service provider (BT/SKY/Virgin etc)
  • Establish when the offender(s) called and ascertain the number and duration of calls. It is important that we try to establish the approximate start and end times of the call.
  • Ask victim for details of the caller - male/female, did they use a name/title, accent and, importantly, the MO. How did they pass details of the PIN number – verbally or did they key in their number?


Ponsanooth flooding - Feb 14

Following the tragic flooding of the Post Office and General Stores in Ponsanooth, the Parish Council are very pleased to see the opening of a temporary facility now in place and wish to covey thanks for the donated log cabin, to all the volunteers who have supported the shop, to Michelle for keeping things going and everyone else who has helped out in this challenging situation.


The parish council has attended meetings with Cornwall Councillor Michael Keogh, South West Water and Cornwall Council staff with regards to the drainage issues in Ponsanooth and it is with thanks that the roads have now been swept and the drains cleared.  CCTV observations have been made, in a number of drains, the findings of which will be posted on the Council website at a later date.

Lower Treluswell Flooding - Feb 14

Severe flooding also occurred in February in Lower Treluswell where 5 cottages were flooded.  The stream that used to supply water to the well which was used for beer making when the brewery was in existence, flooded the road.  Assistance was requested from Cornwall Council who sent Blue watch Falmouth Fire Brigade who started pumping water out and eventually got on top of this situation.


The parish council has been in contact with Cornwall Councillor Michael Keogh and Cornwall Council staff to look at how the situation can be avoided in the future.  Camera inspection of the pipes which take the stream to the Praze drainage system on the B3292 and into the Penryn river, is being carried out.  Further updates will be posted on this website at a later date, as soon as further information is known.

Ponsanooth Street Lighting - Sept 13

Due to the ever increasing costs of the street lighting in Ponsanooth, the Parish Council has made the decision to change suppliers for the electricity.  The move will mean the costs are approximately halved to an average £853 plus VAT per year.  The decision has also been made to change the lit times of thirty of the lights to come in line with one existing light in the parish, the cost for this change will be approximately £60 per light but the saving will recover this expenditure in about 2.5 years.

Tradtional sign post restoration - Aug 13

A traditional signpost in the  Lower Treluswell area that had become neglected, has been repainted and restored.
