Viv Bidgood, Highways and Environment Manager at CORMAC, will be providing an overview of CORMAC’s highway service standards, including how repairs are managed and how people can report highways defects. 

Mark O’Brien, the area’s Community Link Officer, will give an update on plans to strengthen engagement with local communities and give them a greater voice through community network panels. This will include asking the panel to consider some recommendations to give people in the Truro and Roseland more of a voice through Community Networks.

At the meeting there will be an opportunity for panel members to raise and  and urgent issues or suggest future agenda items. Local residents will also have the chance to ask any questions they may have.

Chris Wells Chairman of the Truro and Roseland Community Network Panel and a Truro City Councillor said: “Everyone is invited to attend the Truro and Roseland Community Network Panel meeting. The meeting in March is an opportunity to hear how communities will have more of a say on local matters and find out about highways maintenance. Come along and find out more.” 

The Truro and Roseland Panel meets bi-monthly to discuss matters that affect the local area. They progress these by working in partnership with Cornwall Council and its partners; including town & 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.

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.
