Have a look at information available on line on the Cornwall Council Web Site.

Attached please find an updated notice to let homeowners know about the Park Homes Warm Home Discount Scheme 2018/2019.
This letter was sent to me which I understand has been sent to those homes which were directly affected. We have upcoming meetings with respect to the proposals and will be pressing for a solution to try and avoid a re-occurrence of this type of incident.
In response to the flooding incident on Lansdowne Park, we have been working hard to deal with the work to start reparations. We are aware that it has caused some of the residents great distress and are working hard to deal with the issues arising. We are working with both Highways England and Cornwall Council not only to implement remedial works, but also with the longer term view to avoid flooding like this ever occurring again. A report has been compiled here and I urge anyone who has any comments to come forward and be heard. This will also be distributed in paper form.
Should any flood emergency arise, details of contact details are available on the useful contact pages on the web site: see https://www.cornwall.gov.uk/community-and-living/cornwall-fire-and-rescue-service-homepage/keeping-safe/flooding/
It looks as though we are going have a long hot summer after a long wet winter. Whilst we all relish the thought of long sunny days, it can be a health risk . Therefore I highlight the following NHS guidance in the event of hot weather. Look out for alerts and have a look at the NHS web site.
Thanks to the UK Governments Energy Company Obligations (ECO) Scheme in 2017, qualifying Park Home owners and tenants could have their old boilers replaced completely free of charge, or heavily subsidised.
What’s on offer
Free grant funding for:
- Replacement of a new energy efficient LPG boiler
- Replacement of a new energy efficient oil boiler
- Replacement of a new electric storage heaters
- Upgrade heating controls
Lansdowne Park does not endorse this offer but thought it may be on interest to residents.
I have highlighted some of the points that I thought would be of interest personally to residents on Lansdowne Park- see below. However to appreciate the full range of features and benefits that the Powerheart G5 incorporates, you may find accessing our short product video of interest. This can be accessed via the following web link.
There is also access online G5 CardiAcademy; this can be accessed via the following web link where potential rescuers (be they formally trained or not ) will find useful information about what happens to the heart when they go into Cardiac Arrest and effective resuscitation by combining quality CPR with customized therapy delivered by the Powerheart G5.
Also the following url’s will take you to the Red Cross website and show you 2 very short videos of how to use a defibrillator and put people in the recovery position.
The videos show an adult patient and you’ll see that when doing cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) they are using 2 hands locked together with straight elbows and are leaning directly over the patient: remember that for a child (1-8yrs) you use just one hand, and for a baby (1-12months) just 2 fingers. The defib is never used on a baby, and for a child the pads are put in the centre of the chest and in the centre of the back. Adults have the pads diagonally across the chest as shown on the pads themselves. There is also a sheet for 8Ps for ensuring no harm to the patient or operator when the defibrillator is used.
I will propose that an informal familiarisation / training session be arranged for those who would like to obtain more information.
Your opinion is sought but please can you reply by 8/6/2018. This is your chance to have your say. I would also point out that I have proposed that funding from a local allocations of funds is sought to help with remediation to the lane from the top road down to the entrance of Lansdowne Park. Please can you take up your civic right to make comments.
