During 2019 and 2020 we undertook a review of the whole of Cornwall. The review had to be paused temporarily due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. When the review resumed, Cornwall Council was able to make final decisions in respect of most Towns and Parishes, but final decision making on some of the proposals had to be deferred until after the Cornwall Council elections in 2021. We are now seeking to finalise these deferred proposals.

Since we last consulted on these deferred proposals (between December 2019 and March 2020) a considerable length of time has passed and some of the circumstances that are relevant to these proposals may have changed since then. We are therefore now giving you a further opportunity to provide your feedback on these proposals.

As no final decisions were made with regards to these proposals, we will be seeking your opinions on:

  • the Council’s draft recommendations from December 2019 that were the subject of the last public consultation; and/or
  • any subsequent recommendations that were made following the consideration of the outcome of the public consultation.

Hayle Parish Internal Warding Arrangements


Background

As a result of the Electoral Review of Cornwall, the Local Government Boundary Commission for England provided revised parish electoral arrangements for Hayle parish. It stated that Hayle Town Council should comprise 15 councillors, representing two wards; namely, East with 5 parish councillors, and West with 10 parish councillors. As a result of these changes Hayle parish wards aligned with Electoral Division boundaries from May 2021. The current parish ward arrangements are shown by polling district in Table 1 and Map 1 below.

The proposal put forward by Hayle Town Council and supported by the Council’s Electoral Review Panel is shown in Map 2 and Table 2 below. This proposal does not affect the electoral division boundaries. It is considered that the proposal offers a better representation of the electorate in the area by creating three wards in the parish of Hayle with more evenly distributed electorate and councillor ratios. This proposal would require the consent of the Local Government Boundary Commission for England as Hayle is a protected parish.
