Edwina Hannaford, Cornwall Council’s Portfolio Holder for Neighbourhoods, and Cornwall Councillor Armand Toms, Chair of Liskeard and Looe Community Network Panel, will lead a discussion on proposals for giving local people a greater voice on important local issues via the community network panel.

Local residents will be able to join in speed dating style updates on highways maintenance, public transport and policing.  There will be a presenter for each topic who will provide a five minute overview and then answer questions for 15 minutes.

There will also be an update from the panel’s Broadband Group and an opportunity to talk about the Local Government Boundary Commission’s proposals for electoral divisions in the Liskeard and Looe Community Network area.

Cornwall Councillor Armand Toms, Chair of Liskeard and Looe Community Network Panel, said: “Come along and join us for this important meeting.  We’ll be talking about some of the big issues for the area and receiving updates on local matters from Cornwall councillors.  You’ll also be able to meet your parish, town and Cornwall councillors and ask questions.  I would encourage everyone to join us and find out what’s happening in your community network area.”

Liskeard and Looe 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, economic development, the environment, community planning, regeneration, conservation, community safety, transport and highways issues. 

Liskeard and Looe Community Network Panel includes all eight Cornwall Councillors for the area and representatives of the 18 parishes in the community network: Deviock, Dobwalls and Trewidland, Duloe, Lanreath, Lanteglos by Fowey, Liskeard, Looe, Menheniot, Morval, Polperro, Pelynt, Quethiock, St Cleer, St Keyne, St Martin-by-Looe, St Neot, St Pinnock and Warleggan.

The agenda and more information about the panel are available on our Liskeard and Looe Community Network page.  The meeting is open to the public and everyone is welcome.
