You may be aware of the significant budget challenges that Cornwall Council, along with most other Councils across the country, is continuing to have to manage.

Read about our previous budget engagement and how the people of Cornwall were able to have their say on budget proposals to deliver services with less budget, by doing things differently and making changes in how we work.

View our 'Your say on the budget' report that outlines what we have done, are doing or plan to do about the things you told us through our budget engagement

  • We sought views on the Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP) 2019-2022 for the Isles of Scilly Fire and Rescue Service. The results and findings will be fed back, reviewed and incorporated to help shape the focus and activities of the Isles of Scilly Fire and Rescue Service over the next three years. Closed 28 February 2019.

  • We consulted on proposed term dates for Community and Voluntary Controlled schools for the academic years 2020/21 and 2021/22. The proposed dates would apply to all Community and Voluntary Controlled schools in Cornwall. Foundation, Trust, Voluntary Aided schools and Academies are able to set their own term dates. The proposed dates have been discussed with other south west local authorities and we believe offer good consistency with our closest neighbours. Closed 15 February 2019. Read about the decision made by the portfolio holder

  • We sought comments on a proposed new Parking Order to govern the operation of our car parks. The order includes proposals to increase charges overall by 3.1% (the rate of inflation) from 1 April 2019. Closed 1 February 2019.

  • We asked parents, carers, schools and other interested parties on our proposed admission arrangements for community and voluntary-controlled schools for the 2020/21 school year. Proposed changes were to the oversubscription criteria for some of the primary schools to give greater priority to children who have a sibling already at the school; and a reduction in the Published Admission Number for two primary schools. Closed 31 January 2019.

  • We asked for views on services for social, emotional and mental health working for children and young people in Cornwall. Closed 31 January 2019.
