A statement from the Chairman of Tintagel Parish Council
3rd October 2018
Many of you may be aware that we have had some issues regarding the TVC recently and I thought it best to clarify the situation with you to keep you informed.
After a couple of meetings with the volunteers we have had to unfortunately suspend retail sales for the time being although the Visitors still remains open for information purposes.
We met in early August with the volunteers to discuss its problems and a couple of times since but as yet no solutions have been reached.
I must assure you this is not the fault of the volunteers and we are very grateful for all their hard work over the years,
Unfortunately the TVC has been running at a large loss or loosing money for some time and this is increasing, not only this but we have discovered a VAT implication that had been missed meaning that currently we are trading illegally if we sell goods. As I’m sure you understand we must rectify this as the running of the TVC comes out of your purses as Council Tax Payers and also we need to sort the VAT issue.
We are trying to come to a suitable solution as quickly as possible and we apologise for any inconvenience this has caused. Please bear with us.
Cllr John Lewis – Chairman.

Despite the Parish Council’s attempts to improve Trevena Square, for the benefit of both Parishioners and visitors, the area has yet again been subjected to abuse.
This weekend, flower beds were trampled, plants destroyed and rubbish left strewn about the area.
These actions do little to encourage the continued development of, and investment into, the square.
To the inconsiderate person/ people responsible, we would say this:
Your antisocial conduct is reprehensible. You have incurred additional costs for the Parish Council, which is supported by your fellow rate payers. Therefore, you have destroyed the property of the parishioners of Tintagel and have wasted their taxes.
