As you will be aware, Cornwall Council is undertaking a Community Governance Review for the whole of Cornwall.
This review may consider parish boundaries, the number of seats and warding arrangements for local councils and their names. It provides an opportunity for all local councils, communities and individuals to review and propose changes to these arrangements at parish level to ensure that they are reflective of the identity and interest of your local communities and work as efficiently and effectively as possible.
There is more information on the Community Governance Review page on our website. We have also now published an FAQ document, and updated supporting information, including a list of sites with full planning permission, on our Community Governance Review supporting information page.
You will be aware that we are inviting local councils, parish meetings, local residents and other interested persons, groups or organisations, to provide a submission by July 17 2019 for any particular changes they want to make to the current governance arrangements.
We strongly recommend that all local councils and parish meetings make a formal submission, either to let us know about any changes they wish to make, or to let us know they wish to see no change, and why.
Cornwall Council will be promoting the Community Governance Review at the Royal Cornwall Show later this week. So, if you are visiting the Show, please drop by the Cornwall Council stand (No. 95) to have a look and share your thoughts.
Please also note that CALC have agreed to provide advice to all local councils in Cornwall, not just CALC members, in relation to this review.
I would be grateful if you could bring this message to the attention of your councillors.
