Community governance review - Full Council endorses proposals to be put to public consultation: small change to Probus-Grampound boundary; merger of Tregony and Cuby

A Community Governance Review may look at the whole or part of an area to consider one or more of the following:

  • the creation, merger, alteration or abolition of parishes;
  • the naming of parishes and the style of new parishes;
  • the electoral arrangements for parishes (i.e. the ordinary year of election, council size, number of councillors to be elected to the council and parish warding); and
  • the grouping of parishes.

A review should ensure that local governance continues to be effective and convenient and that it reflects the identities and interests of local communities.

The parishes in this area (Cuby, Grampound, Probus, Tregony) have all been advised by Cornwall Council to say whether or not they have any proposals for changes. Any proposals put forward from those parishes will be considered through a formal process within Cornwall Council, public consultation will take place on any proposed changes and a final decision will be made some time during 2020.

Some changes that have been put forward by parish councils in this area are as follows.

Grampound-Probus boundary: Grampound Parish Council has proposed that two properties that are very close to the village of Grampound but are currently in Probus Parish would be better accommodated within Grampound with Creed Parish. These properties are Pengarth and Penbetha House. In addition, the coal yard site where there is planning permission for 5 houses (not yet built) could also be within Grampound. These changes were supported by both parish councils and the Full Council meeting of 10 December agreed that this proposal should be formally put out to public consultation.

Tregony-Cuby: a proposal has been put forward for Tregony and Cuby Parishes to merge into one larger Tregony with Cuby Parish. This change was supported by Tregony Parish Council and Cuby Parish Meeting and the Full Council meeting of 10 December agreed that this proposal should be formally put out to public consultation.

A proposal by St Mewan Parish Council to change the boundary between itself and Grampound and St Ewe parishes was not supported.

For further details,

see agenda item debated at Full Council on 10 December

If you have any comments on the proposals, please email by 24 March 2020.
