On the agenda is increasing the level of affordable homes in rural areas. Noreen Jefferies, Cornwall Council’s Rural Housing Enabler, will give a presentation on a community-led housing approach which will include information on sources of funding as well as the practicalities of how schemes might be delivered.

Stoke Climsland Councillor Neil Burden who chairs the panel said: “Everyone is invited to attend the Launceston Community Network Panel and hear about our work on local issues.

“Come along, find out more and meet your parish, town and Cornwall councillor.”

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.

The Launceston 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.

Launceston Community Network Panel includes all Cornwall Councillors for the area and representatives of LauncestonTown Council and the Parishes in the community network: Altarnun, Boyton, Egloskerry, Laneast, Lawhitton, Lewannick, Lezant, North Hill, North Petherwin, South Petherwin, St Stephen by Launceston, St Thomas the Apostle, Stoke Climsland, Trewen and Werrington.

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