The Parish Council adopted a new member, Mr. Jem Marshal. There is still one spot left on the Michaelstow ‘council of five’ who work voluntarily to increase participatory democracy in the parish.

Issues this month included a detailed and very well put together planning application for a wind turbine, and the ongoing concern the Parish Council has for dwindling attendance at Michaelstow Parish Church. The council agreed to produce a postcard to circulate to every household in the parish – inviting them to Christmas Services. Also they agreed to fund one issue of The Magazine to every house in the Parish, in an attempt to increase local involvement.

Other issues considered included the maintenance of the chain surrounding Michaelstow Green and the most practical and cost-effective way to light the new car park planned adjacent to Treveighan Chapel. The Parish Council are also helping to re-install milestones on the Old Judges Road – see this link ‘the Judges Road‘ for more info.
