St Mellion Bypass
Oops! Before publishing yesterday's piece on St Mellion Golf Course plans I should have done a little research on the proposal to bypass the village as I had made a brief reference to that subject. I had totally forgotten that the County Council had worked up a scheme for said bypass and in fact had shown the proposals to the villagers via a public display. Cornwall County Council seem to be particularly good with their websites and if you go here you can read all about their proposals for St Mellion. This is brilliant use of the internet by this particular council: I notice that there are some useful maps to show what will happen and indications of the cost and possible start date. The developments at the Golf Course might well nudge the bypass scheme forward - the A388 north and south of St Mellion have been much improved in recent years and this short bypass would not take a lot of time to build.
