A member of Cornwall Council's Cabinet will be attending the meeting to discuss the proposed 3.99% increase in council tax which aims to protect vulnerable people and help ensure the Council can continue to deliver vital services to residents.

Local residents will also be able to talk to representatives from the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, as well as local police and the Council's community safety team. There will also be an update from Cornwall Councillors and town and parish councillors on issues relevant to the local area.

St Mawgan and Colan Councillor and Chairman of the Newquay and St Columb Community Network Panel, John Fitter, said: “Everyone is invited to attend the Newquay and St Columb Community Network Panel and learn more about our work on local issues. Come along, find out more and meet your parish, town and Cornwall councillor.”

The Newquay and St Columb Community Network Panel meets bi-monthly to discuss matters that affect the local area and to progress these by working in partnership with Cornwall Council and its partners including town and 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 Newquay and St Columb Community Network Panel includes all seven Cornwall Councillors for the area and representatives of the five Towns or Parish parishes in the community network: Colan Parish Council, Mawgan-in-Pydar Parish Council, Newquay Town Council, St Columb Major Town Council and St Wenn Parish Council.
