Local matters on the agenda at Truro and Roseland Community Network Panel meeting

Residents in and around Truro and Roseland are being invited to hear about local matters at the Community Network Panel on Tuesday 20 June. As this is also the Annual General Meeting the Panel will be asked to elect a Chair for the next 12 months. In addition the Panel will be asked to agree and approve the draft local priorities for the area; traffic management including the A390 Truro Western Corridor highways package improvements and managing flooding.

Following the item on road safety at February’s meeting there will be an update on Speed Watch, the initiative which aims to drive down the speeds of vehicles in limits of 40mph and below. Speed Watch involves local volunteers from the community who help the police, by aiming to engage and educate drivers rather than issue fines and court summonses. This item will include how we can help local groups set up community Speed Watch schemes.

The Truro and Roseland Community Network Panel meeting is a good chance for the community to hear about what’s going on locally. It’s also a good way for people to meet their local parish, city and Cornwall Councillors. Everyone is welcome to the meeting and there’ll also be an opportunity to ask questions.

The Panel meets bi-monthly to discuss matters that affect the local area and to agree priorities that can be delivered by Cornwall Council and its partners such as the police and health services. Some of the areas that community networks focus on include anti-social behaviour, economic development, the environment, community planning, regeneration, conservation, community safety, transport and highway issues.

The Truro and Roseland Community Network Panel includes all ten Cornwall Councillors for the area, representatives of Truro City Council and the 18 Parish Councils in the community network: Chacewater, Cuby, Feock, Gerrans, Grampound with Creed, Kea, Kenwyn, Ladock, Philleigh, Probus, Ruan Lanihorne, St Clement, St Erme, St Just-in-Roseland, St Michael Caerhays, St Michael Penkevil, Tregony and Veryan.

The meeting takes place on Tuesday 20 June from 7pm to 9pm at New County Hall, Treyew Road, Truro, TR1 3AY. The agenda and more information about the panel can be found on the website. http://www.cornwall.gov.uk/truroroselandcna
