I hope they vote in favour of a van when they have the meeting, I fail to see how a town council that has the responsibility of the geographical area that Helston Town Council covers, can operate effectively without transport, bearing in mind the increasing amount of responsibilities that are being transferred from Cornwall Council to the town council. If the eventuality is refusal based on cost, I believe this will be very shortsighted.

Buy a van Helston TC, go on be adventurous. Someone should assert their authority surely and insist on one.

Sadly it does not work like that, democracy dictates it will be voted on, and by the whole council it looks like in this instance, I believe it would have been the decision of those on the amenities committee had they not voted to put it to full council.
Personally I think a full council vote will be more productive than that of just one committee.

Maybe a lease vehicle would be a cheaper alternative along with maybe a sponsor.
