The community network
The St.Agnes and Perranporth Community Network has been fully
operational since June 2009. The Community Networks are the main
way in which Cornwall Council will connect with local communities,
ensuring that regular St Agnes and Perranporth Community Network
Meetings are held involving Cornwall Council Members and town and
parish councils to ensure that local issues are resolved.

What’s important to you?
What would improve your quality of life in the area you live?
These are the questions we have been asking across the community
network areas to help us decide how to manage Cornwall now and
Cornwall in the future. Four themes have been identified as most
important across all areas; affordable housing, income skills and
poverty, healthy lifestyles and resilience to future challenges.
From these themes, we have developed an updated sustainable community
strategy for how we can do this during this time of great
Information has been gathered from across the Council, police,
health service, town and parish councils and in consultation with
the public about what specifically this means for your area. The
results of this are shown below.
Affordable Housing – The infrastructure, or
lack of it, is seen as a barrier to housing growth.
Income Skills and Poverty – Education and
learning skills is a priority. Access to post 16 education and
apprenticeships are seen as key to bringing jobs into the area.
Healthy Lifestyles – Outreach services for
health, education, children’s services etc.
Resilience – Village Design Statements would
ensure that future development is balanced with job creation,
better public transport, and faster broadband infrastructure.
The other major duty of the Network is to support the Elected
Members with their duties to engage with their local
Neighbourhood planning will allow people to come together
through a local parish/town council and say where they think new
houses, businesses and shops should go, and what they should look

Rubbish and recycling collection
We currently operate a number of different recycling and waste
collection arrangements which we inherited from when Cornwall was
divided into six district councils, each with its own recycling and
From April 2012 Cornwall Council will be working with Cory
Environmental to harmonise the waste and recycling collections in
Cornwall. The change will allow every resident to receive the same
service and recycle the same materials at the kerbside regardless
of where they live in Cornwall. Before the new contract starts in
April, every household will be notified of the changes taking
place, including any changes in the use of recycling boxes / bags
and their new collection days.

collection and recycling service.
