Newlyn Traffic Event Postponed

14th February 2022 in Events, Newlyn

This event has been postponed due to the Red and Amber Weather Warnings issued by the Met Office

Local residents and businesses in Newlyn are invited to share their views on current traffic issues at an information gathering event this week.

Where & When?

The ‘information gathering’ event will be held on Friday 18 February at the The Centre in Newlyn between 3pm and 6:30pm.

Who is organising this event?

This is a Cornwall Council event.

What’s it all about?

The informal drop-in event will be hosted by Cornwall Councillor Thalia Marrington and members of the Penzance Town Deal Team, with support from Cornwall Council’s Highways Team.

As part of the Town Deal funding for Penzance and surrounding areas, £1m has been allocated to deliver sustainable transport projects in Newlyn subject to Government approval of the final business case.

The aim of this event is to give the local community the opportunity to help shape how this money should be spent.

“This will be a genuine listening event where local people can come and share their concerns about transport issues in the town and feed in their ideas and suggestions for how to resolve them“ explained Councillor Marrington.

“We know that there are some real concerns about traffic congestion, parking and the impact of potential future phases of the Healthy Streets scheme on Newlyn. We want to meet with the local community, both residents and businesses, face to face so we can hear how they feel and what they would like to see happen, rather than ask for their views on ideas already drawn up by professionals”.

“While we will have members of Cornwall Council’s highways team on hand to answer questions, their role is to listen to what the community thinks so their ideas can be used to shape the emerging Town Deal transport projects for Newlyn. “
