Cornwall Council’s Annual Full Meeting to take place in Truro next week

Cornwall Council will meet at County Hall in Truro next week for its Annual Full Council meeting.

The meeting sees the election of the leader for the next year, as well as the appointment of Cabinet members.  The leader will also give the annual ‘State of Cornwall in the National Context’ speech, setting out how the authority has performed in the past 12 months, and our standing within the country.

Also on the agenda is the allocation of seats and nominations to committees, which reflect the political make-up of the authority.

Annual reports from the Standards Committee and the Overview and Scrutiny will also be received and discussed, as well as a report from the working group on bullying, intimidation and harassment, which recommends that the authority should support the Local Government Association’s ‘Debate not Hate’ campaign.

Two motions have also been submitted for debate, one calling for support for Cornwall’s farmers, and one calling on the council to treat the care experience ‘as if it were a protected characteristic’.

The meeting will also allow time for questions to the cabinet from both the public and other councillors.

The meeting will take place in the Council Chamber on Tuesday, 23 May, starting at 10.30am, and is open to members of the public.
