During the meeting there will be an opportunity to hear an update from police on local policing matters, as well as an update from Wadebridge Town Council on their future plans for Wadebridge Library.

Councillor Edwina Hannaford, the Council’s portfolio holder for neighbourhoods will also be attending the meeting to discuss continuing plans for strengthening community network panels (CNPs). This gives CNPs options to strengthen local partnerships and agree local priorities, as well as have greater engagement with local community to enable residents to have more influence over issues such as devolution.

There will also be updates from parish, town and Cornwall councillors on local matters.

Cornwall Councillor Karen McHugh, Chair of Wadebridge and Padstow Community Network Panel, said: “Everyone is welcome to come along and find out what’s happening in the Wadebridge and Padstow area. You'll be able to talk to your local councillors and police about the issues that matter to you.”

Wadebridge and Padstow Community Network Panel meets quarterly 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.  The panel’s priorities include public transport, asset and service devolution, affordable housing, highways, traffic and parking issues.

Wadebridge and Padstow Community Network Panel includes all five Cornwall Councillors for the area and representatives of the 14 parishes in the community network: Egloshayle, Padstow, St Breock, St Endellion, St Ervan, St Eval, St Issey, St Kew, St Mabyn, St Merryn, St Minver Highlands, St Minver Lowlands, St Tudy and Wadebridge.

The agenda and more information about the panel are available on our Wadebridge and Padstow Community Network page.  The meeting is open to the public and everyone is welcome to attend.
