A30 dualling between Carland Cross and Chiverton Cross on the agenda at the St Agnes and Perranporth Community Network Panel Meeting

Come along and hear about Highways England’s plan for dualling the A30 at the St Agnes & Perranporth Community Network Panel on Thursday 13th September at 6.30pm in Perranzabuloe Parish Rooms, Perranporth.

 Highways England is the government owned body responsible for motorways and major A-roads, and they are the lead for the work to dual the A30 between Chiverton Cross and Carland Cross. They have regularly attended the panel meetings in the past, during the design and consultation phases and they will provide an update of the scheme following the latest public consultation.  The scheme will cost £192 million, with road works due to start in December 2019. It is currently the third most congested piece of A-road in the South West. The aim is to bring better transport links to Cornwall which in turn benefits the local economy. A subject many people feel passionate about.

The panel will also be discussing smaller scale schemes which parishes have submitted to Cornwall Council’s Community Network Highways Scheme for minor road improvements. This follows-on from the Council initiative, announced earlier this year which gives each Community Network Panel a budget of £50,000 a year to spend on their local highways scheme, part of the £1 million a year package to be spent on local transport priorities.

Ken Yeo of Perranzabuloe Parish Council and Chair of St Agnes & Perranporth Community Network Panel said: “This meeting is a really effective way of increasing local people’s involvement in developing their neighbourhood. We hope more residents, of all ages or backgrounds, can come along and have their say about what is happening in the St Agnes and Perranporth Community Network area.”

 The St Agnes & Perranporth Community Network Panel meets regularly to discuss matters that affect the local area and is a partnership between Cornwall Council, town and parish councils, the voluntary and community sector, the police, health services and most importantly, local residents.

St Agnes & Perranporth Community Network Panel includes the Cornwall Councillors for the area and representatives of the following parishes: St Agnes, Perranzubloe, Cubert, Crantock, St Newlyn East and St Allen.

The meeting is open to the public and all are welcome to attend. The agenda and more information about the panel is available here https://bit.ly/2Qbwgzm
