PEOPLE living in and around Bude can learn more about Connect Bude and plastic recycling at the Community Network Panel’s meeting on July 10.
Richard Wolfenden-Brown, chairman of Connect Bude, will give an update on the group’s aim to reconnect Bude and Holsworthy to the national rail network.
Donna Latham from Cornwall Council will brief the panel about the expansion of the household recycling scheme in North Cornwall to include plastic pots, tubs and trays. Collections are due to start in the Bude area in September.
In addition to this, the panel will elect a chair for the next 12 months and set its priorities for the area, with a view to influencing Cornwall-wide strategies, local service delivery and local projects.
Cornwall Councillor for Poundstock, Nicky Chopak, chair of Bude Community Network Panel, said: “I would encourage everyone to come along and find out more about local issues and the work of your community network panel. It’s a good opportunity to hear about parish matters, ask questions and meet your local Cornwall, town and parish councillors.”
Bude Community Network Panel meets quarterly to discuss matters that affect the local area and to agree priorities that can be delivered by Cornwall Council and partners such as the police and health services.
Some of the areas that community networks focus on include anti-social behaviour, community hospitals, economic development, the environment, community planning, regeneration, conservation, community safety, transport and highway issues.
The meeting takes place on Monday, July 10 from 7pm until 9pm in the conference room, Parkhouse Centre, Bude.
