Local priorities and parking enforcement on the agenda for Bude Community Network Panel

People living in and around the Bude Community Network area can help set the network’s priorities and learn more about parking enforcement at their Community Network Panel meeting on Monday 9 October at 7pm in the Parkhouse Centre.

Zoe Hall, Cornwall Council’s Civil Parking Enforcement Manager, and a representative from Cornwall Council’s Parking Operations team will brief the panel and answer questions on local parking and enforcement matters.

There will also be a workshop session to agree the network’s priorities, with a view to influencing Cornwall-wide strategies, local service delivery and local projects.

In addition, the meeting will include a briefing on Cornwall Council’s Cabinet decision on 6 September to strengthen engagement with local communities and give them a greater voice through community network panels. This includes empowering panels by giving them more of a say on important local issues. 

Jessie Hamshar, Cornwall Council’s Service Director for Strategy and Engagement, will also be attending.  Each community network panel now has a member of Cornwall Council’s Leadership Team to give advice and help ensure strong links between the panel and the Council.  As the representative for Bude, Jessie will explain how she will support the panel, including helping to progress local concerns.

Cornwall Councillor Nicky Chopak, Chair of Bude Community Network Panel, said: “This should be quite an interesting meeting with issues like parking enforcement and an update on the plans to transform local health and care services on the agenda.  There’s also an opportunity for local residents to share their views on what the community network’s priorities should be, so come along and join in our workshop session.”

Bude Community Network Panel meets quarterly to discuss matters that affect the local area and to 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.  Some of the areas that community networks focus on include anti-social behaviour, community hospitals, economic development, the environment, community planning, regeneration, conservation, community safety, transport and highways issues. 

Bude Community Network Panel includes all four Cornwall Councillors for the area and representatives of the 11 parishes in the community network: Bude-Stratton, Jacobstow, Kilkhampton, Launcells, Marhamchurch, Morwenstow, North Tamerton, Poundstock, St Gennys, Week St Mary and Whitstone.

The meeting takes place on Monday 9 October from 7pm to 9pm in the Conference Room, Parkhouse Centre, Ergue-Gaberic Way, Bude. The agenda and more information about the panel are available on our Bude Community Network page.
