There will be a briefing on Cornwall Council’s Cabinet decision of 6 September to strengthen engagement with local communities and give them a greater voice through Community Network Panels. The briefing from Edwina Hannaford, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods and Mark James, Cornwall Council Community Link Officer for the area, will include information on how panels can have more of a say on important local issues.

Nick Cooper, Cornwall Council Forestry Officer, will give an update on Tree Preservation Orders (TPO) and what this means for Town and Parish Councils. There will also be an update on local policing from Devon and Cornwall Police Inspector Ian Thomas.

Cornwall Councillor Bastin, Chair of the Falmouth and Penryn Community Network Panel, said: “The November Falmouth & Penryn Community Network Panel meeting provides a great opportunity for residents to find out more about local issues and to also have their say about how the Panel can strengthen its engagement with the local community so I encourage everyone to come along.”

The Falmouth and Penryn Community Network Panel meets quarterly to discuss matters that affect the local community and to agree priorities that can be delivered by Cornwall Council and other agencies including 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 panel comprises all nine Cornwall Councillors for the area and representatives of the nine parishes in the Falmouth and Penryn Community Network - Budock, Constantine, Falmouth, Mabe, Mawnan, Mylor, Penryn, Perranarworthal and St Gluvias.   

More information about the Community Network Panels and dates for future meetings  can be found on the Cornwall Council Community Networks webage.
