Representatives from South West Water will be attending to answer panel members’ questions and explaining the existing sewage treatment network systems. They will explain South West Water’s plan to cope with future development in relation to waste water (sewage) and the large scale proposed developments to the West of Truro.

There will be a briefing on Cornwall Council’s Cabinet decision on 6 September to strengthen engagement with local communities and give them a greater voice through Community Network Panels. The briefing from Mark O’Brien, Community Link Officer for the network area, will include information on empowering panels by giving them more of a say on important local issues.

At the meeting there will be an opportunity for local residents to ask any questions they may have. There will also be details on how people can give their views on what services are important to them and the Council’s draft budget proposals for next year at public engagement sessions in November and December.

Chris Wells Chairman of the Truro and Roseland Community Network Panel and a Truro City Councillor said: “Everyone is invited to attend November’s Truro and Roseland Community Network Panel meeting and hear from South West Water. These panel meetings are good way for local people to find out more about what’s happening in their local community and to have their say. Everyone’s welcome to 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.
