The Leader and Deputy Leader of Cornwall Council to hold a series of public events to hear your views

The Leader and Deputy Leader of Cornwall Council, John Pollard and Adam Paynter are holding a series of public meetings at key locations in Cornwall.

The aim of the sessions are intended to give details of current issues such as the Budget and the Devolution agenda, but most importantly, allow the resident to contribute to the discussion and give their views.

The dates and locations of the events are:

Open Doors public events – all begin at 6.30pm

12 October Newquay Sports Centre,
13 October Bude, Carriage Room, Falcon Hotel
20 October Falmouth Town Council offices
3 November Helston Community College
4 November Echo Centre, Liskeard
9 November Camborne Room, Pool Innovation Centre
10 November The Guildhall, Launceston
23 November The Gallery, Humphry Davy Community College
25 November Council Chamber, St Austell One Stop Shop
30 November Town Hall, Wadebridge
1 December Bodmin Community College
7 December The Guildhall, St Ives
8 December Council Chamber, New County Hall, Truro
9 December The Guildhall, Saltash Town Council offices

It would be good for as many people to come to the events. As it is important to hear your views on what the Council does well, areas where the Council can improve that are within the powers of Cornwall Council.

Furthermore, in an age of social media, the Leader John Pollard, will be hosting a webchat on Wednesday 21 October between 1pm and 2pm.

You can submit your questions in advance by emailing or on the day at or using #askJohnPollard on Twitter or Facebook.

    I see as usual the Lizard does not exist!

    Given the fact the meetings are scheduled for the evenings, and public transport is infrequent, this rather excludes a large proportion of those living in rural areas surrounding the Lizard.

    I find it intriguing that the Lizard is always combined with Helston as its nearest town, for meetings such as this, and yet excludes Lizard residents from representing Helston as their nearest town due to the three mile exclusion zone!
