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.

You can sign up to the Council's online residents' panel which gives you the opportunity to comment on and take part in Council consultations and surveys.

Our latest consultations, with links to the surveys, are listed by closing date below:

  • We would like to hear from parents, carers, schools and other interested parties on our proposed admission arrangements for community and voluntary-controlled schools for the 2020/21 school year. Changes are proposed 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. The consultation closes on 31 January 2019.

  • We would like to know how you think services for social, emotional and mental health are working for children and young people in Cornwall. The consultation closes on 31 January 2019.
  • We're inviting 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. The consultation closes on 1 February 2019.

We regularly undertake consultations and surveys on a wide variety of topics. You can view information about consultations that have closed on our previous consultations page.

The Council recently undertook a residents' survey in 2017, and also previously in 2014 and 2016.

The Council undertook a Stakeholder Survey in 2017 and in 2016.

We consulted on our draft business plan and budget proposals, during November and December 2017, for increasing Council tax, charges for some services and reducing or stopping providing some services.
