Residents of the St Blazey, Fowey and Lostwithiel Community Network area are being invited to attend the October meeting of the St Blazey, Fowey and Lostwithiel Community Network Panel. Items on the agenda include plans to give communities more say on local issues and an update on the St Austell Resilient Regeneration project.

The Network Panel meeting will take place on Monday 16 October 2017 between 7pm and 9pm at the Burrows Centre, Lamellyn Road, Par, PL24 2DD

There will be a briefing on Cornwall Council’s Cabinet decision on 6 September to strengthen engagement with local communities and give them a greater voice through Community Network Panels.

Rachael Bice, Head of Environmental Growth and Partnerships at Cornwall Council, will be giving an update on progress with the St Austell Resilient Regeneration (StARR) flood alleviation and regeneration project. The scheme, led by Cornwall Council, aims to work across the Par and Sandy River catchments to reduce flood risk to communities living and working in the St Austell Bay area, particularly the people of Par and St Blazey.

There will also be round the table updates from Cornwall Councillors and Town and Parish Councils on matters of interest across the network, and opportunity to share experiences.

At the meeting there will be an opportunity for local residents to ask any questions they may have.

St Blazey Cornwall Councillor Pauline Giles and Chair of the St Blazey, Fowey and Lostwithiel Community Network Panel said: “I really encourage people to come along to the Network Panel meeting. These panel meetings are an important opportunity for local people to find out more about what’s happening in their local community and to have their say. Everyone is welcome to come along and find out more.”

The St Blazey, Fowey and Lostwithiel Network Panel meets quarterly to discuss matters that affect the local area. They progress these by working in partnership with Cornwall Council and its partners; including town & parish councils, the voluntary and community sector, and the police and health services. Some of the areas that community networks focus on include anti-social behaviour, economic development, the environment, community planning, regeneration, conservation, community safety, transport and highway issues.

The St Blazey, Fowey and Lostwithiel Community Network Panel includes all five Cornwall Councillors for the area, representatives of the eight Parish Councils (Boconnoc, Broadoak, Lanlivery, Luxulyan, St Sampson, St Veep, St Winnow and Tywardreath and Par) and three Town Councils (Fowey, Lostwithiel, St Blaise) in the community network area.

Residents encouraged to take part in survey to rate rubbish and recycling collection and street and beach cleaning

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Wed, 04/10/2017 - 09:56

Cornwall Council is asking residents to complete a short survey to give their views on their household rubbish and recycling service, and on street and beach cleaning.

The survey, conducted by Biffa on behalf of Cornwall Council, runs until 31 October and can be found on the recycling page of the Council’s website.

The survey asks for views on:

  • Rubbish collections
  • Recycling collections
  • Garden waste collection
  • Beach cleaning
  • Street cleaning

Sue James, the Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Public Protection, said: “It takes about 10 minutes to complete the survey. We are keen to hear from as many residents as possible as this is a universal service.  We need to keep up to date with what people think of the services we provide and this is your latest opportunity to have your say.  What you tell us will help us ensure the services we deliver are effective and that we continue to make improvements where needed.”

According to the last customer survey carried out in 2016, 94% of Cornwall residents said they were satisfied with their non-recyclable waste collection, with 97% satisfied with the reliability of the collection. 91% said they were satisfied with their recycling collection service, and of those who used the garden waste collection scheme, 98% were satisfied.

Cornwall’s award-winning beaches also scored well, with 89% saying they were satisfied with the standard of beach cleaning. When asked about street cleaning services in their local town or city centre, 85% said they were satisfied with the service, with the highest reason for dissatisfaction being litter caused by birds and animals attacking bins and bags.

Nigel Carr, Biffa’s Cornwall general manager, added: “It’s always very useful to know how residents feel about their waste and cleansing services. Their opinions help the Council and Biffa to consider and make any necessary improvements.”

Bodmin Community Network Panel to discuss place-shaping and a greater voice for local communities

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Tue, 03/10/2017 - 11:21

Shire Hall WebPeople living or working in the Bodmin area can hear about place-shaping and plans to give local communities more say on local issues at the Bodmin Community Network Panel meeting on Wednesday 11 October at 7pm at Cornwall Council’s Chy Trevail offices.

Place-shaping is about co-ordinating economic development in an area by looking at everything that is happening in that location.  Approaches are based on local circumstances and vary from place to place.  The presentation to the panel will include an update on the work currently underway in Bodmin, which includes a focus on the town centre and the possibility of developing an identifiable brand for the town. There will also be an opportunity to explore how place-shaping could work for rural areas in the community network.

Cornwall Councillor Edwina Hannaford, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods, will brief the panel on Cornwall Council’s Cabinet decision on 6 September to strengthen engagement with local communities and give them a greater voice through community network panels. This includes empowering panels by giving them more of a say on important local issues. 

Police and Crime Commissioner Alison Hernandez will also be on hand to update the panel about policing issues.

Lanivet Parish Councillor Jane Dent, Chair of Bodmin Community Network Panel, said: “I encourage everyone with an interest in Bodmin and the surrounding parishes to come to the meeting. It’s an opportunity to find out about local issues and future plans for the area.  As well as the presentations, there will be updates from the town and parish councils and a chance to ask questions and meet your local councillors.”

Bodmin Community Network Panel meets quarterly to discuss matters that affect the local area and to agree priorities that can be delivered by Cornwall Council and partners such as the police and health services. Some of the areas that Bodmin Community Network focuses on include health and wellbeing, local policing, superfast broadband, communication, and planning and infrastructure.

Bodmin Community Network Panel includes all four Cornwall Councillors for the area and representatives of the seven parishes in the community network: Blisland, Bodmin, Cardinham, Helland, Lanhydrock, Lanivet and Withiel.

The meeting takes place on Wednesday 11 October from 7pm to 9pm in Room 2, Chy Trevail, Beacon Technology Park, Bodmin. The agenda and more information about the panel are available on our Bodmin Community Network page.

Falmouth and Penryn Community Awareness Days set to address local concerns

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Tue, 03/10/2017 - 09:35

Residents in Falmouth and Penryn can soon expect a knock on the door to talk about personal safety, waste collection, noise, anti-social behaviour and fire safety as a way of helping to keep the community informed and to listen to issues and concerns.

From 9-20 October representatives from Cornwall Council’s public protection, community safety and anti-social behaviour teams, together with colleagues from Falmouth Town Council, the Devon and Cornwall Police Neighbourhood team, Falmouth University’s Senior Living Support Officer and members of the Student Union will be out door knocking.

The Community Awareness Days aim to give residents an opportunity to talk about issues of concern, ask questions or find out more about local services.

Past visits have been very well received and provided the agencies involved with first-hand feedback about resident concerns.

Councillor Bastin, Chair of the Falmouth and Penryn Community Network Panel, said: “Community Awareness Days are about local communities having a voice in a friendly and non-intimidating environment. This is about us going to residents to hear what they have to say, not just asking them to come to us. It’s also a great opportunity to talk about community safety issues and to either address problems or allay people’s fears.”

Any residents suffering from neighbour problems including noise, waste or other nuisance issues can report them to the Cornwall Council Community Protection Team throughout the year. The team can be contacted 24 hours a day by calling 0300 1234 212 or emailing communityandenvironmentalprotection@cornwall.gov.uk

Candy Atherton, Cornwall Councillor for Falmouth Smithick says: “I would strongly urge people to use the Cornwall Council number to report noise and anti-social behaviour in your area.  It is vital that the authorities know what is going on so action can be taken.”

People living in and around the Bude Community Network area can help set the network’s priorities and learn more about parking enforcement at their Community Network Panel meeting on Monday 9 October at 7pm in the Parkhouse Centre.

Zoe Hall, Cornwall Council’s Civil Parking Enforcement Manager, and a representative from Cornwall Council’s Parking Operations team will brief the panel and answer questions on local parking and enforcement matters.

There will also be a workshop session to agree the network’s priorities, with a view to influencing Cornwall-wide strategies, local service delivery and local projects.

In addition, the meeting will include a briefing on Cornwall Council’s Cabinet decision on 6 September to strengthen engagement with local communities and give them a greater voice through community network panels. This includes empowering panels by giving them more of a say on important local issues. 

Jessie Hamshar, Cornwall Council’s Service Director for Strategy and Engagement, will also be attending.  Each community network panel now has a member of Cornwall Council’s Leadership Team to give advice and help ensure strong links between the panel and the Council.  As the representative for Bude, Jessie will explain how she will support the panel, including helping to progress local concerns.

Cornwall Councillor Nicky Chopak, Chair of Bude Community Network Panel, said: “This should be quite an interesting meeting with issues like parking enforcement and an update on the plans to transform local health and care services on the agenda.  There’s also an opportunity for local residents to share their views on what the community network’s priorities should be, so come along and join in our workshop session.”

Bude Community Network Panel meets quarterly to discuss matters that affect the local area and to progress these by working in partnership with Cornwall Council and its partners, including town and parish councils, the voluntary and community sector, and the police and health services.  Some of the areas that community networks focus on include anti-social behaviour, community hospitals, economic development, the environment, community planning, regeneration, conservation, community safety, transport and highways issues. 

Bude Community Network Panel includes all four Cornwall Councillors for the area and representatives of the 11 parishes in the community network: Bude-Stratton, Jacobstow, Kilkhampton, Launcells, Marhamchurch, Morwenstow, North Tamerton, Poundstock, St Gennys, Week St Mary and Whitstone.

The meeting takes place on Monday 9 October from 7pm to 9pm in the Conference Room, Parkhouse Centre, Ergue-Gaberic Way, Bude. The agenda and more information about the panel are available on our Bude Community Network page.

Recycling rates across Cornwall revealed

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Mon, 02/10/2017 - 09:57

As Recycle Week comes to a close, new statistics released by Cornwall Council reveal that residents of Truro, Grampound, Probus and the Roseland area are among the best recyclers in Cornwall.

Households in the area recycle around 30 percent of their rubbish - higher than the Cornwall average of 25 percent.  

The average household in Cornwall throws away 500kg of rubbish every year, but a survey of household waste revealed that around 25% of material put out for collection could have been recycled with the possibility of, for example, old aluminium cans being turned into anything from foil trays to aeroplanes.

A national survey released this week found that just four in 10 are confident they put their recycling in the right bins – down six per cent since the last time the survey was carried out last year.

Councillor Sue James, Cornwall Council's Portfolio Holder for Environment and Public Protection said the survey reinforced many people are confused about what can be recycled, highlighting the need for more public information.

“This week we’ve launched a social media campaign to help residents understand what can be recycled, what happens to their waste, and the impact this has on the environment. For example, lots of people don’t know you can recycle things like shampoo bottles, or that you don’t need to remove labels from jars.

“Across most areas of Cornwall, you can now recycle plastic pots, tubs and trays - things like yogurt pots and bottle tops. This is something which many residents said they wanted. We’re about to rollout collections in the last area - St Just in Penwith.  

“While most of us do our bit to recycle what we can, certain items around the house are somehow missing the recycling container and recycling just a few more items can make a big difference. We know through our surveys of household waste that people can recycle much more - our kerbside collections are available for paper, cardboard, plastic bottles, tin foil, glass bottles, and – for the majority of areas - plastic pots, tubs and trays.”

You can order recycling containers or report a missed collection visit our recycling collections page or call 0300 1234 141

Our recycling facts page will give you information on how your area is doing.
