The St Agnes and Perranporth Community Network Panel meeting takes place on Thursday 8 March from 6.30pm to 8.30pm at Perranzabuloe Parish Rooms, Chyanhale, Ponsmere Valley, Perranporth, TR6 0DB.

It has been scheduled following a request at February’s Community Network Panel meeting to discuss the preferred route with Highways England before their consultation ends on 12 March.

Once completed, the new eight mile stretch of dual carriageway between Chiverton and Carland Cross will help to improve journey times for many residents, businesses and visitors, and unlock one of the last bottlenecks in Cornwall.

At this public meeting there will be the opportunity for both panel members and the public to ask Highways England questions.

Perranzabuloe Parish Councillor Ken Yeo, Chair of the St Agnes and Perranporth Community Network Panel, said: “This network panel meeting is a great opportunity to hear from Highways England about creating a dual carriageway between Chiverton Cross and Carland Cross on the A30. Please come along to understand more about the scheme and take part in the consultation before it closes on 12 March.”

Cllr Geoff Brown, Portfolio Holder for Transport at Cornwall Council added: “I welcome this further opportunity for Highways England to engage with local communities through the network panel meeting. We know from previous public engagement that there is strong support locally to improve this stretch of the A30 so I encourage people to come and discuss proposals with the Highways England design team.”

The St Agnes and Perranporth 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 of all the Cornwall Councillors for the area and representatives of the six Parish Councils (Crantock, Cubert, Perranzabuloe, St Agnes, St Allen, St Newlyn East) in the community network area.

The Highways England Statutory Consultation is running until 12 March.
