Community governance review to be carried out over next 1-2 years - possible changes to some parish councils

Cornwall Council has powers under the the Local Government and Public Health Involvement Act 2007 to conduct Community Governance Reviews of parish and town council areas and electoral arrangements, in accordance with government guidance.

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.
