The Parish Council would like to thank everyone who has contributed to our survey so far and those parishioners who attended our full council meeting on 18th July 2023. These are the actions the Council agreed to take forward:
- Extended Consultation period: To ensure those who do not use the internet have a chance to participate, the consultation period has been extended to 11th August 2023. Information has been placed on the Council’s notice boards and Parish Councillors will be available at the Millbrook Meet ups (Fridays 9 -12 in the Village Hall) to chat to parishioners.
- Lakeside actions: Take immediate action by extending the cutting by the lakeside on a small stretch where there are visibility issues. The Councils’ contractor was in the meeting and agreed to complete this work as soon as possible.
- Tractor park: Arrange for the banks to be cut on the multiplay unit and the ivy removed underneath the crawling net. This work was completed on 19th July 2023.
- Roadside verges: Make it clearer to parishioners who is responsible for maintenance of what areas in the village by adding more information and a map to the Council’s website. The Parish Council does not have control over the roadside verges but does pass on concerns to Cornwall Council. The Parish Council voted unanimously in support of CC Kate Ewert’s proposal to Cormac for the planting of yellow rattle on the roadside verges; please see CC Kate Ewert’s report https://millbrook-pc.gov.uk/cornwall-councillor-kate-ewert-report-june-2023/ . More details will be provided when we receive them.
We are continuing to receive feedback on a daily basis.

Once the public consultation has ended, the Council will collate all the responses. A public meeting will be held on 16th September 2023 from 2pm, in the Village Hall where information about how we currently manage the open spaces under our control and why some areas are left wild will be on display and the Council’s contractor will be available to answer questions. The Council will then take into account the opinions of participating parishioners and the advice given by local plant and wildlife experts before making any decisions about changes to its current grass cutting regime.
