Residents and businesses are being invited to find out more about Cornwall Council’s Environment Service Standards and local schools during the December meeting of the Hayle and St Ives Community Network Panel.

All are invited to attend the meeting which takes place on Monday 14 December between 5:30pm and 7:00pm at Hayle Community Centre, 58 Queensway, Hayle.

On the agenda is a presentation from Cornwall Council’s Public Spaces Team who will explain the work which the Council has carried out around setting maintenance standards on assets such as public spaces and parks. The new standards aim to provide a consistent and affordable service across Cornwall for public spaces managed by the Council with regards to environment service standards and how these can be standardised across the county.

The panel will also be discussing schools in the Community Network Panel area with an officer from the Cornwall Council Education Department and receiving a presentation from the Neighbourhood Planning Officer for the West of Cornwall.

Cornwall Councillor Lionel Pascoe, Chair for this meeting of the Falmouth and Penryn Community Network Panel, said: “Come along and have your say.”

The Hayle and St Ives Community Network Panel meets quarterly to discuss matters that affect the local community and to agree priorities that can be delivered by Cornwall Council and other agencies including 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 panel comprises all six Cornwall Councillors for the area and representatives of the five parishes in the Hayle and St Ives Community Network – Gwinear-Gwithian and St Erth, Hayle North, Hayle South, Lelant and Carbis Bay, St Ives North and St Ives South.

More information about the Community Network Panels and dates for future meetings can be found on the Cornwall Council Community Networks webpages.
