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

Draft Cornwall Council Farms Strategy 2019 - 2039

We are now consulting on the draft Cornwall Council’s Farms Strategy 2019 – 2039 which sets out our intentions for the Council Farms Estate. This strategy will be the framework for changing the role and purpose of the estate enabling tenants to grow successful businesses which also deliver environmental growth, promote health and wellbeing and enhance the distinctive historic landscape of Cornwall.

We want to hear from a wide range of people, including current and prospective farm tenants, environmental groups and communities where Estate farms are located to help shape the strategy. Closes 5 August.

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. Submissions need to be received by 17 July 2019.

Polling districts and places review

Cornwall's new electoral divisions will come into effect at the 2021 Council elections, when our polling districts and polling stations will need to be compatible with the new division boundaries.

As a part of this work we are reviewing our polling district and polling place arrangements for elections and would like to know about the suitability of polling stations across Cornwall. We would like to know if you are happy with your polling station or if you can suggest something better? Closes 29 July.

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.

National Transportation and Highways survey

The National Transportation and Highways survey is an annual survey which measures public satisfaction against a number of transport related indicators: accessibility, public transport, walking/cycling, congestion, road safety and highways maintenance. Cornwall Council takes part along with authorities across the UK which allows us to benchmark against similar regions.

The survey is undertaken by post and sent to a random sample of residents.

Adult advocacy services

Advocacy services help people to speak up for themselves and get their voice heard. The contracts that Adult Social Care has in place will come to an end in 2020, so we want to know what the new services should be like in Cornwall. We want to hear your views about what is good about advocacy services in Cornwall and how we could make them better. Closes 11 August 2019.

We’d like to know if you have any comments on the proposed changes or any suggested amendments, deletions or additions for the policy. Closes 31 October 2019.
