Cabinet backs £495,000 Torpoint regeneration plan

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Fri, 15/02/2019 - 09:54

Cornwall Council’s Cabinet this week backed ambitious plans to acquire Torpoint Police Station as part of a £495,000 town regeneration scheme.

The police station forms part of the plan developed by Torpoint Town Council and Cornwall Council to deliver 55 one and two-bedroomed apartments, a new library, and retained space for police offices. 

If approved by full council, the plans will deliver 3,000m2 of commercial and community space and c.500m2 of improved public area and the police station will be acquired by the end of the financial year. 

Cllr Bob Egerton, Portfolio Holder for Planning and Economy, said: “This is an important acquisition on behalf of the community of Torpoint.  It enables us to secure a key site necessary to enable delivery of the neighbourhood plan and a wider regeneration scheme that will bring jobs and improve the local economy for the benefit of residents. 

“We will now be progressing further work on bringing the development forward through further design, cost appraisals and ultimately through a planning application.”

Cllr Lambert Keise, Mayor of Torpoint said: “I am delighted to hear Cornwall Council’s Cabinet decision to acquire the police station at the lower end of Fore Street.  The Town Council has been working with Cornwall Council on the scheme to develop accommodation, a new Library, as well as space for the police at this site. 

Securing ownership of this site, accompanied by others already under Cornwall Council will increase the likelihood of success of a coordinated development that delivers this aspect of the Vision for Torpoint, adopted by the Town Council in April 2016.

“The redevelopment of this site will benefit the community of Torpoint, and will deliver a smart first impression of the town, all consistent with the emerging Neighbourhood plan.”

Anti-social behaviour team takes action in Camborne and Newquay and secures closure orders

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Thu, 14/02/2019 - 15:52

Cornwall Council’s Anti-Social Behaviour Team in partnership with Devon & Cornwall Police, have successfully taken action on behalf of local residents to close down two properties in Camborne and Newquay, following recent closures in Penzance and St Ives. 

The orders are part of a continued crack down on anti-social behaviour and a demonstration of the authority’s commitment to create safer communities.

The first closure granted was for a house in William Street in Camborne which has been described as a central location for both the use and dealing of drugs.  Complaints included large groups of people at the property, threatening behaviour with loud arguments and disturbances.

Drug users and dealers frequented the property at all hours of the day and night leaving surrounding residents in fear for their safety. On one occasion, the Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service were called to attend an incident at the address but Officers were met with threats of violence preventing them from accessing the property.

Dorian Thomas from Cornwall Council’s Anti-Social Behaviour Team said: “Due to the ongoing behaviours of the tenant and associates, the property has become a catalyst for ongoing community tensions caused by visitors to the address. The escalation of anti-Social behaviour, misuse of alcohol & drugs and crimes from the address has caused great concern for those living around the property.

“Local residents have been afraid to come forward in fear of retribution, intimidation and threats from the visitors.  The closure order is essential for the community to return to a normal quality of life.”

PC Geoff Streatfield from Camborne Police added:  “I am pleased to say that Cornwall Council and Devon and Cornwall Police have again been successful in the use of current legislation and have obtained another premises closure. The place in question has been the centre of continued and prolonged disturbance and anti-social behaviour which has had an adverse and prolonged effect on the local community.

“This closure, along with others that have being obtained shows that all agencies and the Courts are taking these reports seriously. I must stress though that these measures are only implemented as a last resort and after all other attempts at positive interventions have been exhausted with failure of the tenant to engage.”

The second closure was granted for a property in Hawke Close, Newquay. The closure order was applied for as the tenant continued to ignore previous warnings to stop people using his address for the purpose of taking and dealing drugs leading to persistent and ongoing disorder. The successful application of the Closure Order will safeguard the local residents by providing a much needed respite.

Inspector Dave Meredith from Devon and Cornwall Police said: “I am delighted at the court’s decision to issue a full closure order on these premises. This legislation is not used lightly, and the case was only taken to court due to compelling evidence of drug misuse and anti-social behaviour linked to the address. Class A drug supply and use will always be dealt with robustly by Newquay police.

“The issue of this full closure order reflects the outstanding partnership work that has taken place between the police, Cornwall Council, LiveWest Housing and local residents. Hawke Close, Crantock Street and the surrounding area are a lot safer now this property has been closed. We will continue to target drug dealers and premises involved in drug misuse, and work with our community to make Newquay a safer place for all.”

Residents are encouraged to report anti-social behaviour to the police by using the 101 number or by emailing 101@devonandcornwall.police.pnn.uk

Partnership backs plan for dedicated Penzance caseworker in anti-social behaviour clampdown

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Thu, 14/02/2019 - 13:50

Penzance is to get a dedicated anti-social behaviour caseworker for the first time as part of Cornwall Council and Penzance Town Council’s ongoing bid to tackle problems in the town.

At a meeting this week (February 11) town councillors agreed to jointly fund the 12-month pilot with Cornwall Council who will manage the case worker.

The case worker will be responsible for tackling persistent anti-social behaviour offenders in West Penwith and be based at the new Safer Penzance town centre hub set to open in Causeway Head in the spring.

Currently the town is covered by an anti-social behaviour case worker whose geographical area spans from Land’s End to Camborne but this new post will be focused solely on West Penwith.

The dedicated caseworker will focus on gathering evidence and building cases to take to court for enforcement orders such as the Criminal Behaviour Order which prohibits offenders from anti-social behaviour.

The caseworker will also carry out additional patrols in the town centre and deliver more early intervention and prevention work enabling them to refer offenders to local support services.

Latest reports from the Safer Cornwall partnership - made up of Cornwall Council, Devon and Cornwall Police and other partners - show that 1,046 anti-social behaviour incidents in Penzance and its immediate surroundings were reported to the police over the last 12 months.

Compared with other large, Cornish towns, Penzance has the highest rate of reported anti-social behaviour at 53.4 incidents per 1,000 population, compared with an average of 33.7 across the other large towns, and 22.3 for Cornwall overall.

Cornwall Council has welcomed the plan for new anti-social behaviour case worker who is due to be appointed within two months.

Sue James, Cornwall Council’s cabinet member for neighbourhoods, said: “We have already found with our team of anti-social behaviour case workers in towns across Cornwall that they play a key role in preventing and tackling anti-social behaviour.

“Having a dedicated case worker focused solely on Penzance will be instrumental in reducing the town’s anti-social behaviour and will help to improve the quality of life for everyone.”

Between September and November 2018 Devon and Cornwall Police’s Neighbourhood Team in Penzance conducted 87 high-visibility patrols days and made seven arrests for public order offences.

Safer Penzance continues to encourage people to report all incidents and concerns as they occur as it gives the police the opportunity to respond and deal with the incidents.

In addition these reports are used as evidence to support action and prosecution against those causing ASB problems in the town.

To report street drinking and ASB please ensure that all incidents are reported to, and logged with, the police by calling 101 (non-emergency) or emailing 101@dc.police.uk or ring 999 if you have serious immediate concerns.

Cornwall steps up action at national clean air summit

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Thu, 14/02/2019 - 12:22

Cornwall will add its voice to major cities and other local authorities today to tackle the growing national air quality crisis and improve public health.

Cornwall Council Leader Adam Paynter was invited to attend the National Clean Air Summit in London, joining the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, Environment Secretary Michael Gove and Health Secretary Matthew Hancock, UK100 and UNICEF UK at the event.

The summit aims to build consensus on the actions and powers that are needed to tackle the national air pollution crisis, as attendees set out their priorities for government.

This includes highlighting what’s needed in the government’s new Environment Bill, making the case for a new national vehicle fleet renewal scheme and ensuring the funding local and regional authorities need is provided.

Councillor Paynter said “With air pollution at national health crisis levels in some parts of the UK, it is critical to join together with other regions to put pressure on Government to act swiftly and on a national scale.

“Air pollution affects Cornwall like the rest of the UK. While we have local action plans in place to manage air quality and we are investing in public transport and road improvements to reduce congestion and improve air quality, devolving more powers to local authorities to take local action is critical to making real step changes and delivering on our commitment to a healthy Cornwall,” he said.

“Pushing for national action to provide better incentives for drivers, especially those on low incomes, to choose less polluting vehicles when they change their car could really help reduce emissions and improve air quality – especially in Cornwall where vehicles are on average about ten years old.

“In Cornwall we have nine Air Quality Management Areas where traffic related air pollution is higher than the government’s recommended action level.  As a Council we’re tackling air pollution across Cornwall by providing new walking and cycling opportunities, working with partners to introduce cleaner buses, trialling new technology to reduce emissions from our own vehicle fleet, and much more, but more local powers backed by national legislation will make an even greater impact in helping to ensure a healthy Cornwall.”

Councillor Paynter said attending the summit was also part of Cornwall’s pledge to residents to do more to tackle climate change, following Council passing an emergency climate change motion last month. The motion included calling on Westminster to provide the powers and resources necessary to achieve the target for Cornwall to become carbon neutral by 2030.

What can residents do to help? 

In the UK over 600 Air Quality Management Areas (AQMAs) have been declared in areas with poor air quality.  All of the AQMAs have higher levels of nitrogen dioxide gas than they should, and vehicles are the main source of nitrogen dioxide. 

Every time we make a choice about how to travel what we’re doing makes a difference to the amount of air pollution in Cornwall. 

For example, if you’re waiting in traffic queues and are stationary for a minute or more, switch off your engine.  In Cornwall around 40% of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) pollution is caused by private diesel cars, and adjacent to a busy road around 80% of air pollution is caused by traffic.  If drivers switch off their engines when their cars are stopped for one minute or more, pollution can be reduced by 20-30%.

Walk, cycle, take the bus or train, use the park and ride, or look at options like car sharing or joining a car club. Even sharing tips and ideas for saving fuel, and therefore money, with friends and family, will have the benefit of improving air quality.
