On the topic of the waste collection contract, only a very small number of you thought that the service was poor. The black bag collection service attracted more responses of good (89%) than the recycling (76%).
On balance, a majority of residents think that the Council is doing a reasonable job in maintaining the roads in difficult circumstances.
With regard to the 20 mph limit in the village, a large majority (75%) support the principle of it, although a majority (63%) think that it has not been effective at reducing speeds yet. The evidence from speed monitoring carried out by the Council in December shows a small reduction in speed in one direction only. A summary of the data collected from the automatic monitoring carried out in October 2010 and December 2012 can be downloaded from Tregony Speed Monitoring Data.
Clearly, there is more work that needs to be done to persuade motorists to obey the new limit. I will be working with local volunteers and with the police to try to bring about some improvement. Meanwhile, I would urge local residents to be patient and stick to the limit themselves. In time, I am confident that we can make this limit work better.
On the topic of renewable energy, the responses are split virtually down the middle on whether or not you would support more wind turbines in this area.
On the topic of the planned new development at the Eastern District Centre scheme this side of Truro, there is a majority (64%) in support. However, for the possible, larger Coyte Farm development this side of St Austell, the majority (64%) are opposed to it.
The responses to individual questions are in the table below. Not everyone gave an answer to every question. Where there were simple yes/no options, the table shows the number of yes and no answers and the percentages are expressed as a percentage of the number of answers to the particular question. Note that, where the questions have a choice of answers and one respondent can tick more than one box, the percentages will add up to more than 100%.
