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.

In addition to this, the meeting will include local updates from Cornwall, town and parish councillors and time for public questions.

Cornwall Councillor Neil Burden, Chair of Launceston Community Network Panel, said: “This is your opportunity to help us set Launceston Community Network panel’s priorities.  Last year our priorities included primary and secondary health care services, road infrastructure and speeding concerns, poor broadband accessibility and mobile ‘not spots’.  Come and share your ideas for the things your panel should develop this year or any concerns you think we should address.”
