A PARISH Council has declined a grant application from a local pre-school.

St Piran’s Play School approached Delabole Parish Council to seek financial assistance towards the repair of their back roof.

However, the application was denied by the council by a unanimous vote as they felt that Cornwall Council should be contributing more towards the repair.

Recent minutes noted: “The council considered a grant application from St Piran’s Playschool towards back roof repairs. Councillors felt that the playschool is a business and as Cornwall Council are their landlords, they should contribute more to repair the roof. As such, the application was declined on this occasion.”
