COVID-19 Community Toolkit
Information & Advice For Residents
This pack (produced by Cornwall Council and last updated on 9th April 2020) is to support you and your community during the ongoing COVID-19 situation.
Within it you’ll find a list of key contacts, resources and information in one place, to help you and others in your community to support each other as much as possible during this time.
We know that many established community groups already have great resources, and we hope this toolkit helps more people to offer community support.
We're delighted to announce that Deborah Prendergast and Anderson Knight have been elected uncontested to fill the two vacancies on the Council. There were no other candidates. The new Councillors will be in place before the next Full Council meeting on 7th March...
Following the request by electors in both Mount Hawke and Porthtowan wards, we have been informed by Cornwall Council that the two Councillor vacancies will be filled by the election process. You have until 4pm on Friday 11th February to submit a completed nomination...
Bullying & Harrassment Statement
We treat everyone with courtesy and respect and ask for the same in return. We ask that you treat your councillors and council staff courteously without violence, abuse or harassment. Councillors and council staff have the right to carry out their civic duties and work without fear of being attacked or abused. Any behaviour whether that be verbal, physical or in writing, which causes either councillors or council staff to feel uncomfortable, embarrassed, or threatened, is totally unacceptable. The zero-tolerance policy includes abuse, aggression or threats made in person, over the telephone or in written communication, including on social media.
The council considers threatening behaviour to be:
- Attempted or actual aggressive, or physical actions made towards any councillor or member of staff.
- The use of aggressive, or abusive language, (including raising of the voice, swearing, shouting or in writing) which threatens or intimidates councillors or council staff’.
