Dear Wadebridge Parishioner, Resident of Rowan Road and Business Owner,

COMMUNITY GOVERNANCE REVIEW – a chance to have your say for Wadebridge

Cornwall Council is currently undertaking a Community Governance Review for the whole of Cornwall.  Working with Town and Parish Councils, Cornwall Council have proposed a number of recommendations which will affect you.  These recommendations are aimed to ensure that community governance arrangements are reflective of the identities and interests of the community in that area and are effective and convenient.  The review aims to make sure communities have a voice in the areas they feel part of.

The Consultation Document provides an overview of all draft recommendations and changes under consideration in the Wadebridge and Padstow Community Network Area.

Please use the Consultation Feedback Form to provide your feedback.

Wadebridge Town Council are holding a drop in event where you can meet and chat to Town Councillors over a cup of tea or coffee about what these proposals mean for you.  This will take place on Monday 16 March 2020 from 10am - 2pm and 5pm - 8pm in Wadebridge Town Hall.

Wadebridge Town Council support the proposals which extend the boundaries of its parish to include areas which currently reside within Egloshayle and St Breock Parish Councils. We support these proposals as they aim to create an organisation best placed to deliver the services required by the local community to improve community engagement, create more cohesive communities, provide better local democracy and ensure the efficient delivery of local services.

Wadebridge Town Council have a wish to take on more devolved services, become a Social Housing provider, deliver Youth Services, support Business Development and work with the Police and other partner organisations to address issues in our town and surrounding communities for the benefit of everyone.  Together we are stronger as we work towards these objectives. 

We look forward to meeting with or hearing from you over the coming weeks. 

Wadebridge Town Council
