New Road

FAO Maker with Rame Council:


Following further testing of the mortar on the existing retaining wall along New Road, Cawsands we have established that the mix is a lime mortar. Due to planning conditions we are required to build the wall to match as closely as possible, this will mean that the programme will increase from 12 weeks to 19 weeks (including a 2 week shut down period at Christmas).


Unfortunately due to the width of the road we will not be able to open the road over the Christmas period to HGV and large vehicles, however we will look to open the road under traffic lights for light vehicles.

RCT update

Registered Charity 1066389
Company Number 03440492
The Trustees
The Nissen Huts, Maker Heights
TORPOINT, Cornwall, PL10 1LA
Rame Conservation Trust (RCT)
RCT is a buildings preservation trust (registered charity no. 1066389) with the purpose of conserving
the heritage assets at Maker Heights for public benefit. More information is available on the RCT
website (1) including its Governing Documents (2) and a detailed account of its purpose.
Conserving heritage assets
Historic England defines heritage assets:
‘Some parts of the historic environment are important to society as a whole or to a group within
it and merit some level of protection or consideration. These are called our heritage assets.
They are the elements of the historic environment that we value for more than their money’s
worth. The generations that follow us are most likely to value them too, for the same or similar
reasons. It has therefore long been accepted that we have a responsibility to look after them.’
Our Heritage Values
RCT recognises all heritage values at Maker Heights:
● Natural environmental value
● Archaeological value
● Historic value
● Aesthetic value
● Communal value
Maker Heights has outstanding significance
The significance of a site is the sum total of its Heritage Values. At Maker Heights this sum indicates
that the significance of the site is outstanding .
Conservation Principles
Our Conservation Principles guide this charity’s activities:
1. The historic environment is a shared resource
2. Everyone should be able to participate in sustaining the historic environment
3. Understanding the significance of places is vital
4. Significant places should be managed to sustain their values
5. Decisions about change must be reasonable, transparent and consistent
6. Documenting and learning from decisions is essential

The land and buildings at Maker Heights are valued by local people and by the nation
RCT has responsibility for a wide range of heritage assets at Maker Heights; both natural and
human-made. All are set within a unique historic landscape, and designated by Natural England as
Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) (4) and (5).
Historic England has designated Redoubts Nos 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 as Scheduled Ancient Monuments,
and the buildings of the central Barracks complex as Grade II* Listed Buildings. Many of the
structures are on the national Heritage at Risk Register (6) because they are in need of conservation
Maker Heights is a large and complex site and all these protective designations, along with the
unique historic landscape, mean that RCT works within a tight regulatory framework.
RCT creates public benefit
Like all charities, RCT exists to create public benefit (public wealth) and at Maker Heights this
includes public access, experience, enjoyment and public education.
RCT leases the site for educational use
The majority of the site at Maker Heights is leased by RCT from Edgcumbe Estate for educational
purposes. The lease agreement includes 12 hectares of semi-improved grassland and four
Scheduled Ancient Monuments (Redoubts Nos 1, 3, 4 and 5). The trustees are fully committed to
demonstrating that this charity is a reliable custodian of the land and buildings it leases from
Edgcumbe Estate. We are improving land and water management, employing best practice in the
conservation of buildings and the natural environment, and increasing learning opportunities at the
RCT owns the Barrack Block
RCT owns the freehold of the Barrack Block - a Grade II* Listed Building. The freehold was retained
by RCT during a disposal of charity assets carried out by former trustees in 2015. RCT is now
providing workspaces in the Block to local people, and the rental revenue is directed into the rolling
conservation cycle (inspection - repair - maintenance - capital investment).
RCT is investing in Maker Heights
Conserving Maker Heights and managing the site to sustain its heritage values requires investment in
the forms of care, time, knowledge, experience, effort, day-to-day management, and funding. This
charity is fulfilling its purpose at Maker Heights, and the involvement of many people and
organisations is making this possible. We are receiving a huge amount of support and wish to thank
everyone for their generosity.
RCT is working in partnership with Historic England, Natural England and Cornwall AONB
At the outset we recognised that partnership working would be vital if we are to fulfil our purpose and
ensure best practice at the site. The advice and guidance of our partners is much appreciated, and is
contributing a great deal to our proposals for Countryside Stewardship, our applications to grant
funders (including Heritage Lottery Fund) and our contributions to the Conservation Management

The Old Ship Inn, Cawsand


Community Share Offer


Dear Friends and Neighbours,
We are very pleased to announce the opening of our Community Share Offer to buy and rebuild the Old Ship Inn, Cawsand. Our thanks to everyone who has shown an interest in this idea; the support we’ve received has been absolutely amazing. The plan is confirmed:

  • Four decent, secure flats for local people at reasonable rents

  • A new community space with a pub, a café, a children’s area and Village Information

  • A heritage centre for Cawsand

Once completed, the whole thing will be self-financing and secure indefinitely.
We now get to the nitty-gritty! Please help us succeed:

  • Put some money in. If you’re able to invest, we can offer shares for any amount from £100 to £25,000. These are not donations – you can get your money back again, you will get 3% interest when we’re in profit, and if you pay UK tax you can claim 50% of your investment back in Tax Relief. The Terms & Conditions for all these are in our Share Offer Document.


  • Forward this e-mail on. Please have a think about other people you know who might want to invest. We’ve trying hard to reach all those who care about Cawsand, but of course we don’t know everyone – if you think that friends or family might want to support us, please let them know.


  • Don’t forget our Letters of Support. We’ve already got over 300 letters – please keep them coming in, they are vital for our fundraising efforts. You can see a suggested wording here.

We now have a short video about the Old Ship and or project, made by two talented young people from the village. Please have a look: VIDEO LINK
How to invest
The Share Offer opens this week, Thursday 15th March to raise the finances for a new body, The Old Ship Inn Cawsand Limited. This is how it works:


  • Please read the Share Offer document, which lists all the terms of the offer and explains the risks involved.


  • For details on how the project will work, see our Business Plan, which includes the stages of the project and the finances.


  • For the legal structure that governs the new organisation, see the rules.



More information
You can ask questions and find out more as follows:

  • At our Public Meeting on Thursday 15th, 7pm in the Institute, Kingsand

  • Phone us on 01752 658516

  • E-mail us to admin@thepeninsulatrust.org.uk

  • Come in to the Rame Centre in Millbrook, open 10.00 – 4.00pm in the week, 10.00 – 1.00pm on Saturdays

  • Visit the Old Ship building on any Saturday, 10.30 – 12.30

Closing Date
The Share Offer closes on 10th May, which is pretty soon! Also, if you’re interested in the 50% Tax Relief, it’s only available for the first £150,000 of investment- after that, the rebate drops to 30% (which is still good!!!)
We will be sending out regular updates on our progress. This is a very exciting, if nerve-wracking moment – we hope that we can raise the money, and we are very grateful to everyone for their help.
With best regards to all,
The Peninsula Trust team

Cornwall Council resident's survey 2017

Residents' Survey 2017

Dear City, Town and Parish Council colleagues

The Council is currently undertaking a Residents' Survey. The survey is being carried out on our behalf by Marketing Means, an independent research company, which was selected by competitive tender. The survey is being sent to 27,000 households across Cornwall, selected at random, and asks questions about Cornwall Council and the services we provide.

With a new Council just elected, this survey is asking the people it has been sent to - what is important to them and their community about the place where they live and what they think about the Council, the services we provide and if we represent value for money.What people who complete the survey tell us will influence what we prioritise, both in our budget plans for the next four years and as we create a longer term vision for Cornwall.

Over the next few months we will also be providing other opportunities for everyone to shape our proposals and we will be listening to what our residents, businesses and partners tell us to help make sure our plans reflect the needs of Cornwall now and in the future.We are also currently undertaking a second Stakeholder Survey which will be sent to stakeholders, partners and key organisations, by email.

Please see below FAQs to help you in case you are asked about the Residents’ Survey.

Frequently Asked Questions:
I have been sent the residents' survey - what do I need to do?
If you have been sent the residents' survey, we need just one person at your address to fill it in, and this can be anyone who is aged 16 or above.
Please follow the instructions in the letter and either complete the questionnaire enclosed with your letter and send it back in the envelope provided or complete it online using the unique code in your letter.

If I am going to be sent the survey - who will it come from?
The survey is being carried out on our behalf by Marketing Means, an independent research company. The letter will have Cornwall Council's logo and address on it and will be from Adam Paynter, Leader of Cornwall Council.

How have people been selected to receive the survey?
We need replies from a wide cross section of people so that we get a representative view across Cornwall as a whole; therefore the survey is being sent to 27,000 households across Cornwall, that have been selected at random.

How can I get help completing the survey?
If you would like assistance in completing the questionnaire or would like the information in another format or language, please call the Marketing Means helpline on Freephone number 0800 849 4019.

I have questions about the survey - who can help?
If you have any questions or concerns about the survey, please email: haveyoursay@cornwall.gov.uk or phone: 0300 1234 100.

I want to check if the survey I have been sent is from the Council - who can help?

The survey is being carried out on our behalf by Marketing Means, an independent research company.

If I complete the survey - will my personal details be safe?
Your survey answers and personal details will be treated in the strictest confidence and used for research purposes only. We will not pass them on to any other organisation. It will not be possible for any individual person or address to be identified from the survey findings or in the results that will be published this autumn.

Can I complete the survey if I work for Cornwall Council?
If a Cornwall Council employee receives a survey, they can complete the survey as a resident of Cornwall.

I haven’t received the Residents’ Survey, how can I take part?
You can’t take part in the Residents’ Survey unless you have received a letter with a questionnaire; but there will be other opportunities to have your say on our draft Budget and Business Plan later this year.

Kind regards

Adam Paynter
Leader of Cornwall Council

Second Home Restrictions

Two more Cornish communities have voted in favour of neighbourhood plans containing policies intended to prevent new-build properties being used as second homes. In referendums held earlier this month, residents of the Rame Peninsula and the St Minver area endorsed the neighbourhood plans drawn up for their communities.

The ‘yes’ votes follow a referendum last year, in which a neighbourhood plan for the Cornish resort of St Ives – including a policy that would require new homes to be occupied as the buyer’s main residence – was backed by local residents. In November, a High Court judge threw out a developer’s legal challenge against the plan. The Rame Peninsula Neighbourhood Development Plan says that up to 40% of the homes in some of the peninsula’s areas are second homes. (Source: Planning Resource) This year Rural Housing week will take place between 3 and 7 July: Rural Housing Week Information. The week will consist of local activities organised in rural communities throughout the country by rural organisations, supported by the National Housing Federation and finish with a national conference in London.

Neighbourhood Plan Referendum results

Sorry I have only just made contact with you all. The CC website crashed yesterday through too much demand, and the NP referendum results were not declared until 6.00pm yesterday, and I got home really late. This morning (Saturday) I had to be in Truro at 9.00am to try and facilitate the agreement of a new administration for the Council and Cornwall. It will take me weeks to negotiate this, so please bare with me. The next few weeks I will be camped in Truro, trying to get the best deal for the area.


Anyway, I have just got back, and this is the first chance I have had to give you the NP result.


Turnout was 2,102 around 55%


1,834 Yes 88% of the vote


241    No 11.5% of the vote


The Plan will now be adopted!


To put things into context, St. Minver Parish (Rock, Polzeath,etc) had their referendum and count after, and they had a similar ‘Principle Residence’ policy to ours, but they only had 665 Yes and 154 No on a 51% turnout.


Well done to everyone for your hard work on this Plan, we got there in the end……..( I think a social evening is in order, if someone would like to organise ?)


Thank you, one and all


Best Wishes
