Parish Footpaths

July 29th 2021

Following a tendering process in March, the Parish Council appointed Cherry Trees Garden Services as its Local Maintenance Partnership (LMP) contractor for the next three years.  Cherry Trees has recently carried out the first cut of all gold paths and the annual cut of the silver paths.

A full list of paths that the Parish Council are responsible for can be downloaded here along with an associated map (you do need to zoom in on the map).  This is a work in progress so if you are aware of any errors on this list please do let the Clerk know.  Please note that not all paths that are highlighted as gold on the Cornwall interactive map qualify for funding.

In addition, please do give us any feedback on the state of the paths themselves as we are aware that a number of the paths were very overgrown after years of neglect and it is hoped that by taking on the path cutting, paths within the parish will become better maintained and accessible to more people.  If it is a path that we have funding for then we can take action, although where a footpath runs alongside a field the landowner of that field is responsible for any side growth which encroaches onto the footpath.  Please note that any maintenance issues relating to damaged or missing signage, gates and stiles will be redirected to Cornwall Council
