Community network profiles
These profiles are the first step towards providing a clearer
view of a range of statistical information about people and places
within the community network areas. They have been put together to
improve our understanding of communities within each of the network
areas and will help to inform service delivery.
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 – Town and Parish Councils
have a pivotal role in developing affordable housing schemes and
deciding upon allocations based on local need.
Income Skills and Poverty – Housing growth and
employment growth must be linked but with an adequate
infrastructure such as transport and broadband.
Healthy Lifestyles – Housing growth is seen as
an opportunity to develop healthier lifestyles by providing good
quality community spaces.
Resilience – Developers should provide larger
gardens and/or allotment space to grow local food. Potential
allotment space should also be identified.
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
like. For further information view the Neighbourhood Planning pages.
