In 2019 The Parish negotiated with Cornwall to take over and operate the Car Park at St Cleer in addition to the Public Conveniences which Parish had ‘adopted’ a number of years before.
The car park provides free car parking spaces and is very well used, as a result it had become more of an obstacle course than a car park so the first job was a major resurfacing project which was undertaken by D A Giles.
The soak away at the rear had to be cleared of a significant amount of debris and since this was achieved the Estate Caretaker has rigorously cleared the culvert of rubbish and fallen vegetation and we work with our neighbours to ensure that leaf fall is minimised. In doing this the water erosion that was in evidence under the previous surface can be mitigated and hopefully this new surface last for another 25-30 years.
A small sum is set aside year on year to pay for its eventual replacement in 2040 or thereabouts!
