Officers from Cornwall Council and CORMAC will be in attendance to discuss parking enforcement, car parks and highways and Inspector Meredith from Devon and Cornwall police will also be there to answer any questions.

Discussions will include updates on the new parking framework that aims to significantly improve car parking and includes simplified tariffs, new machines and barriers to enable drivers to pay on exit, improved signage and new systems to consider the needs of carers who need to park in areas with restricted parking.

Newquay Treviglas Councillor and Chairman of the Newquay and St Columb Community Network Panel, Mark Formosa, said: “Everyone is invited to attend the Newquay and St Columb Community Network Panel and learn more about our work on local issues. Parking is a significant issue in the network and this is a chance for people to ask questions of officers who are able to help us find any solutions.

“You’ll also have the opportunity to find out about two local car parks that are changing to pay on exit and a discussion on our highways network. 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.

More information about the Community Network Panels and dates for future meetings can be found on the Cornwall Council Community Networks webpage.
