Neighbourhood Development Plan

Our local parishes need to produce a Neighbourhood Development Plan.

A steering committee will be needed on this and we would like as many people as possible to be involved so that all  voices and views are heard and the work can be shared.

Anyone interested please contact Tresmeer Parish Council.

Please come and join us.  The more voices the more choices.

A Neighbourhood Development plan meeting will be held shortly.

Three Saints Cross Country Cycle Route

This route is a challenging ride and is NOT suitable for children.

Warning:Do not attempt the full circuit after heavy rain; the River Ottery can quickly turn into a white water experience. During the ride you will cross three small streams and ford the river Ottery.

Some of the downhill runs will demand a high level of fitness and skill to keep upright on two wheels. It is best if you don't do this on your own.

The tracks are some of the less known bridleways in the area. You will come home probably wet and muddy and possibly a bit tired, but if you can do it have fun! Click here for more info.



There have been reported instances of sheep worrying by out of control dogs.  Please be advised that when on any enclosed agricultural land all dogs must be on a lead or under control. Under the Dogs (Protection of Livestock) Act 1953 if you allow your dog to worry livestock you will be guilty of an offence and can be prosecuted and fined, ordered to pay compensation and even ordered to have the dog destroyed.

Cornwall Council will be pleased to supply landowners with a "FARMLAND - Please keep your dog on a lead THANK YOU" sign FREE of CHARGE.
