The Cornwall We Want

The Cornwall We Want consultation

In March this year people across the whole country experienced a massive change to their way of life.

Our June resident’s survey showed us that this had triggered an appetite for change. Although there were some very negative side effects of the pandemic, the more positive changes made people realise that life could be different and only 1 in ten people wanted every thing to go back to the way it was before the pandemic.

So we launched “The Cornwall We Want” campaign on 26 June, to hear more from residents about the changes they want for future generations.

What people said

We heard from a wide range of people, all across Cornwall. Over 25,000 people visited the Let's Talk Cornwall new online platform to take part in the conversation about the Cornwall we want. Over 900 people have taken part in discussions, round tables and focus groups. Our 3 livestreamed discussions have been watched back over 16,000 times.

You can read more about the ways people could have their say and what we heard from them in this report.

This is what primary school pupils from across Cornwall said they wanted for Cornwall's future 

What's next

The feedback we heard from residents has been used to shape the vision set out in ‘Gyllyn Warbarth, Together we can: The Cornwall Plan’.  

So far, the plan has been endorsed by the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Health and Care Partnership Senate, Cornwall Association of Local Councils, the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Nature Partnership and Cornwall's Youth Parliament.

Environment Secretary George Eustice commented: “Across the nation, there is a new appreciation of the difference that nature makes to our lives, and of the link between our own health and that of the planet. This vision shows how Cornwall can lead the way in building back better and greener.”
