The Cornwall We Want

How can we shape the Cornwall we want for future generations?

The Coronavirus pandemic has affected almost every aspect of how we live our lives. This includes the health and wellbeing of our family and friends, our jobs, businesses and the wider economy.

In June we published the results of a survey among 500 residents of Cornwall. The survey covered the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic and their views about the future after the pandemic is over.

Only one in ten residents want things to go back to what they were before. People told us they wanted a cleaner environment, reduced traffic with more cycling and walking. They are also keen to keep the good community spirit they saw during the lockdown.

We want your views on the future so that we can together build a more sustainable, healthy, safe, vibrant and equal future for one and all. We are starting our biggest ever listening project. We will be using a new online engagement platform.

Help us by signing up to the platform now and joining the discussion. You can share your thoughts and experiences of covid-19 here in Cornwall.

  • What do you want the ‘new normal’ to look like for you, your business or your community? What do you see as the challenges and opportunities to achieving those aims?
  • To achieve the Cornwall we want for the future, what are the changes we need to make now?
