From Cornwall Council:
Residents in Bude and the surrounding parishes are invited along to the next Bude Community Network Panel meeting on Monday 7 October to discuss issues that affect them and where they live.
The focus of the meeting will be around how parishes can strengthen the use of the Community Network Panel structure to benefit the area as a whole.
Included in the session will be a discussion around the current Community Governance Review, where attendees can hear feedback from a recent meeting and the next steps involved.
There will also be an update on Stratton Hospital and Inspector Julian Morris from Devon and Cornwall Police will provide an overview of crime issues.
The meeting is taking place at The Crackington Institute, Higher Crackington, Bude, EX23 0JL on Monday 7 October from 7 pm.
Community network panels are an opportunity for members of the public to engage with what’s happening in their local area, to speak to their local Town, Parish and Cornwall Councillors and shape the future of where they live.
The 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, economic development, the environment, community planning, regeneration, conservation, community safety, transport and highways issues.
Bude Community Network Panel includes all Cornwall Councillors for the area and representatives of Bude-Stratton Town Council and the Parishes in the community network: Jacobstow, Kilkhampton, Launcells, Marhamchurch, Morwenstow, North Tamerton, Poundstock, St Gennys, Week St. Mary and Whitstone.
The meetings are open to the public and all are welcome to attend.
