Bugle Cornwall Councillor Sally-Anne Saunders and Chair of December’s China Clay Community Network Panel, said: “Everyone is invited to come along to the China Clay Community Network Panel. This month, amongst other things, we'll be highlighting some local highways and policing issues. It's a great way for residents to find out what is going on in their community and they can raise concerns of their own too. So I strongly encourage people to come along and participate.”

The China Clay Community network panel meets every two months to discuss matters that affect the local area. They progress these by working in partnership with Cornwall Council and its partners; including town and parish councils, the voluntary and community sector, and the police and health services. In recent meetings the China Clay Network Panel has focused on the delivery of Cornwall Council services in the area such as housing, planning, transport and highway issues, developing the local economy, the environment, conservation and community safety.

The China Clay Community Network Panel includes all six Cornwall Councillors for the area and representatives of the five Parish Councils (Roche, St Dennis, St Enoder, St Stephen-in-Brannel and Treverbyn) in the community network area.
