Council assesses landslip damage
RESIDENTS met with Cornwall Council on Monday to discuss the way forward following a dramatic landslip at Calstock.
The council completed a structural assessment of Lower Kelly Road on Monday to consider how to replace the wall and repair the highway following a landslip of 20 metres of the road on Christmas Day.
During the meeting with Calstock residents, the council agreed to fund transport for the residents affected by reimbursing hired cars.
The council will arrange independent structural surveys of the five properties opposite the landslip and Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service (CFRS) has put contingencies in place.

Sue Rogan, of Lower Kelly, who lives alone, said: "The slip is right in front of me and obviously we feel a bit nervous in our houses – it happened two feet in front of my gate.
"Everyone is supporting each other and offering each other help.
"People are trying their best in a bad situation."
CFRS will test all the hydrants along Lower Kelly Road and establish a list of equipment at the boatyard, including portable pumps, ladders and hoses.
All properties along the stretch of road have now been visited.
