Outcome of Village Improvements consultation

August 31st 2021
The following has been received from Cornwall Council by anyone that responded to the above consultation:

Thank you for expressing your interests in our consultation regarding the St Erth Village Improvements scheme.  I would like to present you with details of the outcome and the following steps we intend to take. This can be seen in the text below:

The consultation returned a total of 57 responses. Taken as a whole, the scheme received 66% support, 12% objection and 22% neither support nor object.

Within the details of the scheme, some aspects were supported more than others. The most popular ones were the extension of the 30mph speed limits on Treloweth Lane and Chenhalls Road. Each attracted 71% support, 4% objection and 25% neither support nor object.

The least popular aspect of the scheme was the proposed waiting restrictions on Tredrea Lane, with 59% support, 20% objection and 21% neither support nor object. Many of the objections were from residents of Tredrea Lane and Trehayes Meadow.

We have reviewed the proposed traffic calming along School Lane. In place of speed cushions, our proposals now include a road narrowing feature, which will also provide a safe crossing point for pedestrians. We are currently arranging a separate re-consultation on this single proposal (a separate website post with the link to comment on this will be made).

As for the rest of the scheme, Cornwall Council has approved that it be taken forward to delivery, with funding confirmed. Construction is expected to start in November 2021 and will take approximately three months.

Once again, thank you for your involvement.”
