Falmouth Town Council Recognised

The success of Falmouth Town Council in the National Association of Councils Star Councils Awards was recognised recently by the All Party Parliamentary Group at a local democracy reception in Westminster.

Having taken on local services to save them being lost, such as Falmouth Library, public toilets, CCTV and youth services, the Council was described as a beacon of excellence in joined up service delivery.

Public Conveniences

Apologies for the inconvenience: Please be aware that the Council is undergoing a redecoration programme for all of the Towns public toilets.

This means at various times in the coming weeks facilities will be unavailable.

Swanpool toilets are currently being refurbished. Next week will be Gyllyngvase and then Grove Place, Prince of Wales Pier and Webber Street in sequence.

Council Budget Setting

Unsurprisingly given the proximity of council elections, the Town Council has been made aware of misinformation regarding local funding that has been published.

To be clear: Falmouth Town Council has never set its budget in private. Nor has it ever limited any councillor or member of the public access to budget setting. That would not be legal. It is a participative process and all 16 councillors participated and decided budgets at meetings open to the public.

Make your voices heard: encouraging local residents to view and comment on Falmouth’s draft Neighbourhood Plan

If approved by local people, Falmouth's Neighbourhood Plan could set the town’s agenda for the next decade. The Plan’s aim is to limit inappropriate housing developments, protect vital open spaces, create a new green corridor and provide a powerful tool that will help councillors to repel planning applications that threaten the town’s future prosperity.
Following extensive community engagement during 2015 and 2016, Falmouth Town Council (FTC) has now published the first draft of its Neighbourhood Plan in a second phase of consultation that runs until Friday 17 February 2017.

Seagull Proof Sacks for Every Falmouth Resident

Falmouth Town Council has taken delivery of 11,000 seagull-proof sacks which they hope will be snapped up by local residents and will help solve the town's rubbish problem.
Thanks to a partnership with Falmouth University and the University of Exeter, the sacks are being offered free of charge to residents of Falmouth and by this weekend they should be available to collect from a number of shops.
