Last summer’s Boardmasters Music Festival at Watergate Bay was cancelled at short notice due to adverse weather. The meeting will hear from the organisers of plans for the 2020 event, and the upcoming planning application for the festival.

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) allows local authorities to raise funds from developers. These funds are used to pay for the infrastructure that is needed as a result of development, such as roads, playgrounds and drainage.

Cornwall Council’s Infrastructure Group Leader Gemma Arthur will tell the meeting how funds collected by Cornwall Council can be accessed, and will explain the differences between CIL and S106.

There will also be the usual updates on the Highways Scheme, and Cornwall Councillors will brief on issues relevant to the whole (or a significant part) of the Community Network Area, including those raised in full Council, Overview and Scrutiny, etc.

Anyone wishing to raise items is encouraged to advise Community Link Officer Anna Druce in advance of the meeting via anna.druce@cornwall.gov.uk

Chairman, Cornwall Councillor Mark Formosa, says: “Everyone is welcome to attend these meetings. They are an ideal chance to keep abreast of local issues, and to question local Town, Parish and Cornwall Councillors, service providers, and other decision makers.”

“Whether you just want to sit and listen, or to join in with our sometimes lively debates, this is where you will hear about local services, consultations and developments in Newquay and St.Columb. So please join us and meet some interesting people.”
