People in Truro, the Roseland and surrounding areas have been invited to County Hall to discuss issues that affect them.

The Truro and Roseland Community Network Panel on Tuesday July 16 will focus on issues specifically affecting the area.

Transport issues will be on the agenda, with discussions expected on initiatives to tackle rural isolation.

The future role of town and parish councils and localism will also be discussed.

The meeting will take place in the Trelawny Room at County Hall on Tuesday July 16 from 7pm.

Chris Wells, chairman of the Truro and Roseland Community Network Panel said: “This is a great opportunity for members of the public to come and engage with what’s happening in their local area and to speak to their local Town and Parish Councillors.

“We welcome anyone from around the Truro and Roseland communities to come and join us, to help shape the future of where they live.”

The panel meets twice a month and focuses on areas such as anti-social behaviour, economic development, the environment, community planning, regeneration, conservation, community safety, transport and highway issues.

It includes all ten Cornwall Councillors for the area, representatives of Truro City Council and the 18 parish councils in the community network: Chacewater, Cuby, Feock, Gerrans, Grampound with Creed, Kea, Kenwyn, Ladock, Philleigh, Probus, Ruan Lanihorne, St Clement, St Erme, St Just-in-Roseland, St Michael Caerhays, St Michael Penkivel, Tregony and Veryan.

Residents can also keep up to date with what is happening in the area by joining the Truro and Roseland Community Network Area Facebook page.
