Last day for submissions | Community Governance Reviews

Jul 16 , 2019 - Tue - 9:00 am

We are now inviting town and parish councils, local residents and other interested persons, groups or organisations, to provide a submission for any particular changes (including no change) they want to make to the current governance arrangements.

Please use the submission form to inform us of any desired changes. Please ensure this reaches us by 17 July 2019.

The Council will consider all submissions received. In November 2019 it will publish its draft recommendations and undertake a 12 week public consultation to get feedback.

The feedback will inform the final recommendations. This is intended to be submitted by the Electoral Review Panel to Full Council for decision making in June 2020.

This timeline is intended to ensure the agreed changes can be implemented in good time so they can take effect at the 2021 local council elections.

In December 2018 we wrote to all town and parish councils to seek their initial views on whether a review was needed in their parish. We also attended the Cornwall Association of Local Councils conference on 16 February 2019 to talk about the process.

We have published the Terms of Reference and the timetable for the review. We have also published a range of supporting information. This has details about the current arrangements and information to help inform the review.
