Full Council set to meet in Truro next week

County Hall in Truro

Changes to council procedures which could see the end of secret ballots of members are among the items up for discussion when Cornwall Council meets next week.

Also on the agenda will be discussions on harbour fees for Falmouth and Truro, and the latest update on the authority’s capital programme.

Two motions have also been submitted for debate, one focussed on calling for further devolution for Cornwall, and one calling for support for the Climate and Ecology Bill currently being considered in Westminster.

The meeting will also see Cabinet members answering questions from both members of the public and from their fellow councillors.

Cllr Linda Taylor, leader of Cornwall Council, said: “Full council meetings give us the opportunity to hear from all our elected members from across Cornwall, and are an opportunity for the discussion and debate that informs our work going forwards.”

Next week’s meeting takes place in the Council Chamber at New County Hall in Truro on Tuesday, 18 April, starting at 10.30am.

The meeting is open to members of the public, and can be viewed live via our webcast service.  You can read the full agenda for the meeting on the Council website.
