Cornwall Council commits to the principles of Localism and Devolution
Cornwall Council is committed to delivering double devolution:
- transferring powers from London to Cornwall
- devolving services and assets to local communities and citizens
Devolution - to Cornwall
Cornwall is the first rural authority to agree a Devolution Deal with the Government. The Cornwall Devolution Deal outlines the powers that will be devolved to Cornwall. These include:
- health and social care
Devolution - within Cornwall
Cornwall Council is devolving services and assets within Cornwall. This work will empower local councils, groups and organisations.
Community Right to Bid
The Localism Act 2011 introduced the Community Right to Bid. It enables certain groups to nominate local land or buildings to be included in the list of assets of community value.
