Cornwall town now managing all former Cornwall Council managed sites

Cornwall Council News feed - 38 min 14 sec ago

Residents in St Columb Major are now benefitting from having more control over public buildings and spaces following the transfer of a number of sites to the Town Council from Cornwall Council.

Following the successful transfer of the town’s library last year the town is now set to continue with that success by taking on:

  • Trekenning Road car park
  • “The Hurlings”, land on west side of Station Road
  • 881sq m of grass verge maintenance
  • Trelawney park
  • Play area at Hawthorn Close
  • Land at Highfield Avenue
  • Grass verge at Highfield Avenue
  • Parking bay at Market Place

St Columb Major Town Mayor, Cllr Paul Wills said: “It’s given people in the town a sense of ownership and pride. If we have these assets within our control we can look at how we can best improve them and how we can make them work for the entire community. People in the town realise that they now have a greater say on how these assets are used and managed.”

Cornwall Council portfolio holder for Climate Change and Neighbourhoods, Cllr Edwina Hannaford said: “St Columb Major have already proven how successful devolution of site management from Cornwall Council to Town Councils is through the great improvements they have already made on the town’s library.

“St Columb Major Town Council identified the sites which are used most often, such as the car park and the play areas, and the council has worked with them to successfully manage this transfer.”

Cllr Paul Wills added: “We have been able to invest in new equipment for one of the play areas that we already manage, so we can now invest in these other play areas so that people can expect a similar standard of quality and maintenance across sites all in the town.”

Cornwall Council is also supporting the town with an increase in parking enforcement to help manage the parking issues in the town centre.

The devolution of the sites supports Cornwall Council’s priority to give residents and communities a greater say in decisions, making them at the most appropriate level.
