Over the past two years, Cornwall Council has undertaken a Community Governance Review for the whole of Cornwall. This provided an opportunity to review and make changes to governance arrangements at parish level.
Both Tregony Parish Council and Cuby Parish Meeting suggested that a merger of the two parishes should take place. This proposal was formally approved by Cornwall Council at a full council meeting in November 2020 and the Council published the official Reorganisation Order in December.
All the activities, responsibilities and assets currently managed by Tregony Parish Council and Cuby Parish Meeting will be merged into the new parish council from 1 April 2021.
Under the terms of the Reorganisation Order, I, as the Cornwall Councillor for this area, have been appointed to oversee the transition arrangements involved in the merger of the two parishes. I have been consulting with representatives from the two parishes to ensure that everything goes smoothly.
A website has been set up for the new parish council, see Tregony with Cuby.
Elections will be held for Tregony with Cuby Parish Council, along with elections for Cornwall Council and all the other town and parish councils across Cornwall, on Thursday 6 May 2021.
