DOG FOULING

The Parish Council is aware of an increase in dog fouling in Landrake and St Erney and are asking the community to use Cornwall Council's 'report it' facility.  Please click on the link below:
https://www.cornwall.gov.uk/environment-and-planning/animal-welfare/dog-welfare-and-enforcement-service/dog-fouling/report-dog-fouling/ 

In a recent email communication from Cornwall Council's Dog Welfare and Enforcement Officer I was advised  'Fouling is an offence for which Cornwall Council regularly issue fixed penalty notices and/or prosecute. They require evidence to identify the offenders, thereby linking people to these offences.'   Karenza Heald, Parish Clerk

CORONA VIRUS

The government is now (23 March 2020) introducing three new measures.

  • Requiring people to stay at home, except for very limited purposes
  • Closing non-essential shops and community spaces
  • Stopping all gatherings of more than two people in public

Every citizen must comply with these new measures. The relevant authorities, including the police, will be given the powers to enforce them – including through fines and dispersing gatherings.

These measures are effective immediately. The Government will look again at these measures in three weeks, and relax them if the evidence shows this is possible.

The Coronavirus Act allows for Town and Parish Council's to host remote meetings.

Landrake with St Erney Parish is a small parish in south east Cornwall. The Parish lies about 3.5 miles (5km) west of Saltash and the river Tamar, and is bisected east - west by the A38 trunk road. Apart from Landrake village, which is the main population centre, the Parish is mainly agricultural and woodland, with small hamlets and farmsteads linked by narrow cornish lanes. The Parish covers almost 3600 acres (1450 hectares), and has a population of about 1000.

Landrake Parish lies on high ground between the deep and partly tidal valleys of the rivers Lynher and Tiddy, which come together at the southernmost tip of the Parish, where the main railway line from Plymouth to Penzance crosses both rivers on a high viaduct

Many of the farms provide tourist accommodation, and in Landrake village there is a shop and post office, primary school, village pub and community hall.

This Web site provides parishioners and visitors with an overview of our Parish and its activities, and is produced by the Parish Council with information provided by individuals and organisations within the Parish. If you have information you would like to see published on this site, especially forthcoming events, please contact the Council.
