Also on the agenda is an item on community speedwatch. PCSO Mary Wells from the Saltash Neighbouring Policing Team will talk about these projects, how they can be established, and answer any questions.

There will be an update on the Community Networks Highways Scheme from Catherine Thomson, Community Link Officer and Paul Allen, Highways and Environment Manager, CORMAC, as well as news from the South East Cornwall Economic Development working group.

The Town and Parish Councils will also give feedback on Climate Change and Plastic Free Cornwall for the Gateway Community Network area. And there will be news on the Network Panel’s own priorities of water transport, air quality in Tideford, and the A38. 

Community Link Officer Catherine Thomson says: “These meetings are lively and informative, and there is an opportunity for members of the public to raise any questions they may have.

Whether you’re after an informal conversation with councillors and decision-makers in your area, or just want to come along to listen, you are very welcome. This is an important part of Cornwall that needs interested people to discuss its needs. I guarantee you will enjoy yourself, and want to join us again.”

The Cornwall Gateway 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.
