Spaceport Director Miles Carden and his project team will give a presentation about the UK’s first horizontal spaceport and will be discussing with panel members future community engagement opportunities.

Jonathan Price, Cornwall Council’s Service Director for Adult Transformation & Commissioning, and Jane Nicholas, Head of Adult Care and Support, will be attending the meeting to give information and invite views on the transformation of adult social care and health and its benefits and impact for residents.

The panel will also get the opportunity to hear from the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly Alison Hernandez and Inspector David Meredith both of whom will give a question and answer session regarding police issues in the network.

 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. You’ll also have the opportunity to find out about the exciting Spaceport plans and what’s happening with adult social care. 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.
