Community Governance Review

Cornwall Council is undertaking a review of the parish boundaries, the number of seats and warding arrangements for local councils and their names for the whole of Cornwall. Hayle Town Council has reviewed its boundaries with neighbouring parishes and internal warding arrangements and has submitted a response to Cornwall Council for this first phase of the consultation process. The town council has proposed some changes for a small number of dwellings which would impact on the boundary between Gwinear-Gwithian Parish. No proposals have been submitted that would affect the boundary with St Erth Parish. For more information about the town council’s submission please the website or town council Facebook page. Cornwall Council will publish an overview of all submissions in early August and its panel will host a series of meetings throughout Cornwall, as the next phase of the process.

Hayle Town Council has entered into a Service Level Agreement with Cornwall Council for the provision of a multi-skilled environment officer in the town. The officer will be working flexibly including some early mornings, evenings and weekends. He is charged with enforcing parking, dog fouling, littering and dogs on beaches regulations throughout the town.  This service is in addition to routine hours that Cornwall Council already provides to Hayle and was established to address the vast numbers of complaints by local residents.
