Community Governance Review Cornwall – could affect you

Sep 2, 2019 | Parish News

Parish and Town Councils are the first tier of local government. They play a vital role in engaging with local people and helping to shape their communities.  Cornwall Council (CC) is currently undertaking a Community Governance Review (CGR) for the whole of Cornwall. This provides an opportunity to review and make changes to governance arrangements at parish level. This is to ensure they are working as efficiently and effectively as they should be. It also ensures that they are reflective of the identity and interest of local communities.

You can find out more information from CC about the CGR here – https://www.cornwall.gov.uk/council-and-democracy/elections/community-governance-reviews/

Gwinear-Gwithian Parish Council would like to consult you on changes it would like to make to the Parish boundaries.  Please see the attached map which shows the changes we are putting forward for this review.
