190103 | Angarrack 'desire to change the boundary was somewhat tempered' | Minutes | Hayle Town Council

d) Boundary Review Update

It was reported that CC had engaged CALC to guide town and parish councils through the
process for the potential programme of community governance reviews. CALC’s annual
conference on 16 February would address the issue. It was noted that it was only a matter of
registering an interest in a review, and there would be further opportunities to review HTC’s

Some councillors were worried about the new CC divisions of Hayle West with five town
councillors and Gwinear-Gwithian (GG) and Hayle East with ten town councillors. It was

there would potentially be more than 200 town and parish councils wanting such input and it

the email of 24 December 2018 until as close to the 8 February 2019 deadline as possible and
for the subject to be included on the agendas for the next two council meetings.
