This information has been passed on to the Council officers dealing with this project for their consideration along with other responses that the Council may have received directly from residents through the Council's official consultation system, and any letters or emails sent to the Council officers, and any petition forms etc. submitted from residents in Probus and Grampound.
All points raised by consultees will be considered carefully before a final decision is made by the Council as to whether or not to proceed with all or any of the proposals, or whether any amendments need to be made to any of the detail of any of the proposals.
Although one of the proposed shelters is in Grampound Parish, the benefits and or detriment from this shelter proposal will most directly affect residents in St Mewan Parish. Therefore, I have suggested that Cornwall Council needs to consider carefully any representations from that parish.
