Cornwall Council Officers who deal with waste management, environmental protection and the Council’s waste contractor Biffa will be coming along to explain the existing local arrangements for litter, street sweeping and fly tipping. They will give details about how communities can help with managing waste as well as answering questions.

Mark O’Brien, the area’s Community Link Officer, will introduce the new Community Network Highways Scheme that will give community network panels a greater influence over local and major transport schemes. Community network panels will be able to review and prioritise local schemes and will have a budget of £50,000 for highways improvements in their area.

As this is also the Annual General Meeting the Panel will be asked to elect a Chair for the next 12 months and review and agree the terms of reference for the Panel.

At the meeting there will be an opportunity for panel members to raise and discuss any 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 May is a chance to hear how community network panels will have more influence on improving public roads through the new Community Network Highways Scheme. 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.
