Have your say

Your views are important to us, so make sure your voice is heard by telling us what you think

The Community Engagement Strategy 2009 sets out our approach to community engagement. It highlights our commitment to improve our coordination of consultation and engagement activity. This is both within the Council and with our partners.

You can have your say about Council matters and issues in a number of ways. The links below will direct you to more information. This includes how to let us know your views about services and specific Council issues that we are currently consulting on. 

Current consultations

Bay to Bay Multi-use trail

Cornwall Council has been working with the Penzance Place shaping group to ensure the Mount’s Bay multi-use walking and cycling trail route captures the vision of the Neighbourhood Plan and the ambition of the local community. Phase 1 of the Mount's Bay trail takes in the Penzance Promenade. The Council has committed funding to deliver a major surface improvement to the promenade in time for the Cornwall stage of the Tour of Britain in Sept 2020.

Have your say on the Penzance promenade surface at our public consultation event on Saturday 25 May, 10am to 2pm, on the Promenade. If it is raining, it will be held in the Queen’s Hotel.

Homelessness Strategy
Cornwall’s current Homelessness Strategy runs until March 2020 and we need to review it to take into account recently introduced changes to legislation. We have been working with our partners to prepare an initial approach to how we can work together to address homelessness and rough sleeping. Closes 7 August 2019.

Safeguarding Adults Board webpages
The Safeguarding Adults Board (SAB) is responsible for protecting adults from abuse, reducing the risk of abuse, and supporting people to stop abuse where it happens. Recognising the need for continuous improvement and building on feedback already received, we are reviewing the Safeguarding Adults Board web pages.

Community Governance Review for Cornwall
Cornwall Council is currently undertaking a Community Governance Review for the whole of Cornwall. A Community Governance Review provides an opportunity to review and make changes to governance arrangements at parish level (such as parish boundaries, number of parish councillors, parish warding arrangements) to ensure they are working as efficiently and effectively as they should be and are reflective of the identity and interest of local communities. We are inviting town and parish councils, local residents and other interested persons, groups or organisations, to provide a submission for any particular changes (including no change) they want to make to the current governance arrangements. Consultation closes 17 July 2019.
