Oliver Jones, CORMAC’S Area Highway and Environment Manager, will attend the meeting to give an overview of CORMAC’s highway service standards, including how repairs are managed and how people can report highways defects.  Councillor Geoff Brown, Cornwall Council’s Cabinet Member for Transport, will also be there to answer any questions.

Cornwall Councillor Dominic Fairman, Chair of Camelford Community Network Panel, said: “Important changes are coming to the way both health and social care are delivered in Cornwall and our meeting is open to all the public to learn and question how these will affect local services in the future. We also have our local highways manager to explain how and when roads are maintained and take questions. It is also an excellent chance to meet up with your local councillors.”

Camelford 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 highway issues. 

Camelford Community Network Panel includes the Cornwall Councillors for the area and representatives of the following parishes: Advent, Camelford, Davidstow, Forrabury and Minster, Lesnewth, Michaelstow, Otterham, St Breward, St Clether, St Juliot, St Teath, Tintagel, Tremaine, Treneglos, Tresmeer, Trevalga and Warbstow.

The agenda and more information about the panel are available on our Camelford Community Network page.  The meeting is open to the public and all are welcome to attend.
