Community network panels are an opportunity for members of the public to engage with what’s happening in their local area, to speak to their local Town, Parish and Cornwall Councillors and shape the future of where they live.

Chair of Bude Community Network Panel Councillor Nicky Chopak said: “This is a great opportunity for residents of Bude and surrounding parishes to come along and find out more about developments in their community. We encourage everyone to come along.”

The Bude 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.  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 highways issues. 

Bude Community Network Panel includes all Cornwall Councillors for the area and representatives of Bude-Stratton Town Council and the Parishes in the community network: Jacobstow, Kilkhampton, Launcells, Marhamchurch, Morwenstow, North Tamerton, Poundstock, St Gennys, Week St. Mary and Whitstone.

The meetings are open to the public and all are welcome to attend.
