Cornwall urges Government 'No roll back from devolution'

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Tue, 23/04/2019 - 12:08

Cornwall, along with some of the largest regional economies in the UK, today challenged Government not to roll-back from the promise of greater devolution after Brexit.

Cornwall, alongside Birmingham, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham and Sheffield, London and Tees Valley is asking Government to stick to its promise of more control for local communities – and warning that any “roll-back” could put local economies, like Cornwall, at significant risk.

Cornwall Council made history by becoming the first rural authority to secure a devolution deal, giving it more power over funding to deliver services to local businesses and residents.

Cornwall Council’s Leader, Adam Paynter, said that the £568 million in funding secured by Cornwall for local control has enabled the Council to make a big impact on transport, housing, emerging energy, technology projects and business start-ups, stimulating the economy and delivering local jobs.

He argued that these improvements could be put at risk by the Government’s current “wait and see” approach to a new funding solution.

Cornwall, and partners, are calling for the new proposed shared prosperity fund to be underpinned by greater local devolution, which: 

  • is a multi-year, fully devolved funding programme, aligned to each region’s strategic economic need, so each region can plan for a growing local economy;
  • is designed to close the inequality gap between and within regions

Adam Paynter said: “Government clearly told us that Brexit would enable local people to take back control. It says a lot that so many different and diverse communities have joined together across the UK in order to remind Government of this promise. Especially as these regions account for about 47% of England’s gross value added, and 42% of England’s population.”

“Cornwall is proud of the progress that has been delivered in transport, housing, energy and tackling fuel poverty for the most vulnerable residents. This has all been delivered in the last two years, a direct result of the first devolution deal.

“The Government’s lack of clarity over funding and devolution post-Brexit could have a significant impact on everyone’s lives within Cornwall.

“We, our partner cities, and urban areas in the UK, have a very clear proposition for what is needed.

“Cornwall’s proposal, shared through the next devolution phase “New Frontiers” – is a plan to show how a rural economy can contribute to the UK’s future prosperity, while creating an environment and society that works for everyone in Cornwall.

“It’s up to Government to work with us to achieve this.”

School places on the agenda for St Agnes and Perranporth Community Network Panel meeting

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Thu, 18/04/2019 - 14:55

Residents of the north coast parishes of Crantock, Cubert, Perranzabuloe, St Agnes, St Allen and St Newlyn East, are invited to attend the April Meeting of the St Agnes and Perranporth Community Network Panel.

The Community Network Meeting will takes place on Thursday 25 April between 6.30pm and 8.30pm at Perranzabuloe Parish Rooms, Chyanhale, Ponsmere Valley, Perranporth, TR6 0DB.

The meeting will be hearing from officers from Cornwall Council’s education service to discuss issues around school places at both primary and secondary school level. There will also be the opportunity to hear from parents and consider what steps can be taken to address issues raised.

Cllr Ken Yeo, the St Agnes and Perranporth Community Network Panel Chairman said: “All local residents are invited to attend the meeting - it is your opportunity to meet your Cornwall Councillors and your Parish Council representatives. The meeting on Thursday is a good opportunity for you to find out what’s going on locally and how your representatives address matters that have been brought to their attention. As a Panel we encourage input from the residents who attend the meeting.”

The St Agnes and Perranporth Community Network Panel meets regularly 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.

For example at the last meeting the panel considered local highways schemes that could be supported by the £50,000 per annum for four years allocated to each Community Network Panel by Cornwall Council.  The panel considered schemes from the Parish Councils in their Network Area and discussed which of these are put forward. The St Agnes and Perranporth Community Network Panel has also been involved with the proposed dualling of the A30 from Chiverton Cross to Carland Cross.

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

High street heroes wanted to spring clean Cornwall’s towns and villages

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Thu, 18/04/2019 - 11:42

Cornish communities are being offered up to £2,000 to help spring clean their high streets and smarten up their town and village centres.

Cornwall Council and partners were recently given a last-minute litter-cleaning boost after a £98,400 Government cash injection.

The one-off funding announced by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government is now being made available to community groups and individuals for cleaning, decorating and improving town and village centres across Cornwall. 

They have until May 6 to apply for grants and support worth up to £2,000 to help with projects and activities such as litter picking, graffiti cleaning and chewing gum removal or anything else that will enhance their local environment.

Ruth Gripper, project manager for Cornwall Council’s partner Clean Cornwall which is running the scheme, said: “We want people to tell us what needs doing in their local area.

“It’s up to communities to decide what they need to improve their local areas. It may be something as simple as a piece of equipment or something really imaginative to improve the look of a place. Our aim is to be flexible and to listen to communities about what they need. Then we can supply the money or resources to help them make it happen.”

Councillor Sue James, Cornwall Council’s portfolio holder for the environment and public protection, said: “We take great pride in our beautiful towns and villages across Cornwall, and this scheme gives local residents the opportunity to help make them even better.”

“Clean Cornwall does a great job working with community groups and others to address the issues of litter across the Duchy. These grants are an innovative way of providing extra support for the local community in those efforts.”

Many Cornish towns already have voluntary or community groups looking after their local environment. While this scheme is open to existing groups, parish and town councils, Clean Cornwall is especially keen to hear from individuals who might use this opportunity to create a new group to keep the work going in the future. Their grant could be used for tools and equipment, training, signage, promotional material or to support community events that will encourage others to look after their local area.

Full details and an application form can be found on the Clean Cornwall website and applicants will be asked to provide photographs of the areas they hope to improve, with details of how they plan to spend the money and who will do the work.

It is hoped that at least 40 Cornish communities will be awarded grants. The closing date for applications is May 6 with grants allocated to successful projects shortly afterwards.
