The following volunteers have contributed to our research since 2017: Pat Farrell (lead), Rob Follett, Jane Horn, Charmian Larke, Nat Nixon, Jan Robson and Jan Trefusis.
The Parish of Mylor covers a large area, all of which is within an Area of Outstanding Beauty (AONB). Parts of the creeks and headlands are bounded by an SSI (area of special scientific interest). These areas have specific protection in law. Communities change over time and you can see photographic evidence of this in many of the pubs in the area as well as evidence collected by local history societies.
How do we manage change in the future? The environment group seeks to protect our natural and historic background, including the landscapes and seascapes. Accepting that change happens, how can it be made while mitigating the effects of climate change and flood risks? Can we take advantage of green energy schemes to reduce our reliance on polluting fossil fuels? Can a future increase in housing and business be accomplished without destroying the very reason that many people want to live and work here?
We need your help. Join us and help answer some of these questions. You can join our group, or you can sign up to help give your opinion and agree to be surveyed at various times as the plan starts to come together.
Our future, our plan
