There will be a briefing on Cornwall Council’s Cabinet decision in September to strengthen engagement with local communities and give them a greater voice through Community Network Panels. The briefing from Cllr Edwina Hannaford, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods will include information on empowering panels by giving them more of a say on important local issues.

At September’s St Agnes and Perrranporth Community Network Panel meeting Peter Hocking from South West Water came along to answer panel members’ questions and explain the existing sewage treatment network systems and how it would deal with increased developments. The panel will be discussing some of the responses from South West Water and deciding what to do next to address local concerns.

At the meeting there will be an opportunity for local residents to ask any questions they may have.

Town and Parish Councillors will be able to give feedback on any local matters that they may have.

Perranzabuloe Parish Councillor Ken Yeo, Chair of the St Agnes and Perranporth Community Network Panel, said: “Everyone is invited to attend the meeting of the St Agnes and Perranporth Community Network Panel. At the December meeting people can hear from Cllr Edwina Hannaford about how communities will have more of a say on local issues so I encourage local people to come along.”
