Community networks to receive devolved funding for highways schemes within their areas
Across Cornwall, there are 19 community networks. Each community network has been allocated £50,000 per annum for the next three years to spend on highways schemes in their areas. It will be for Cornwall Councillors and parish and city councils within the network to put forward proposed schemes. Highways officers from the Council will assess what needs to be done to implement each scheme and provide designs and estimates of costs.
The community network will then decide which of the schemes can go forward from within their budget.
The first proposals for this area will be considered at the Truro and Roseland Community Network meeting on Tuesday 17 July. Members of the public are welcome to attend the meeting but, if there is a vote on any proposals, only the Cornwall Councillors and town and parish councils will be able to vote.
I have submitted a proposal for the speed limit on the Probus bypass to be reduced to 50 mph and to be enforced by an average speed camera along the bypass.
