The Cornwall We Want

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

In March this year people across the whole country experienced a massive change to their way of life. Our June resident’s survey showed us that this had triggered an appetite for change. Although there were some very negative side effects of the pandemic, the more positive changes made people realise that life could be different and only 1 in ten people wanted every thing to go back to the way it was before the pandemic.

So we launched “The Cornwall We Want” campaign on 26 June, to hear more from residents about the changes they want for future generations.

We heard from a wide range of people, all across Cornwall. Over 25,000 people visited this online platform to take part in the conversation about the Cornwall we want. Over 900 people have taken part in discussions, round tables and focus groups. Our 3 livestreamed discussions have been watched back over 16,000 times.

You can read more about the ways people could have their say and what we heard from them in this report.

The feedback we heard from residents has been used to shape the vision set out in ‘Gyllyn Warbarth, Together we can: The Cornwall Plan’.

Let us know what you think of the Cornwall Plan

    The feedback we heard from residents about the Cornwall they want has been used to shape the vision set out in ‘Gyllyn Warbarth, Together we can: The Cornwall Plan’.  

    So far, the plan has been endorsed by the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Health and Care Partnership Senate, Cornwall Association of Local Councils, the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Nature Partnership and Cornwall's Youth Parliament.

    Environment Secretary George Eustice commented: “Across the nation, there is a new appreciation of the difference that nature makes to our lives, and of the link between our own health and that of the planet. This vision shows how Cornwall can lead the way in building back better and greener.”

    You can let us know what you think of the plan below.

    A recent survey of residents conducted by Cornwall Council shows how our communities pulled together during lockdown - and are calling for change.

    500 residents of all ages and walks of life took part in the survey. They were asked about the impact of the pandemic on their lives and livelihoods, and about their hopes and fears for the future of Cornwall.

    two in three residents said that they now have a greater appreciation of green spaces, countryside paths and beaches for daily exercise. 70% said they experienced cleaner outdoor air. 

    The results show that only one in ten residents want things to go back to the way they were before the Coronavirus pandemic. When asked what one thing residents would like to see changed once the pandemic is over, a cleaner society with less litter and pollution and better protection of the environment came top of the list. What are your thoughts? How can we make this happen? What steps are you prepared to take?

    500 residents of all ages and walks of life took part in the survey. They were asked about the impact of the pandemic on their lives and livelihoods, and about their hopes and fears for the future of Cornwall.

    Over half of residents said that they had helped others, and 21 percent said they would like to continue to do so in the future. 73 percent agreed that local communities had pulled together during the crisis. 

    The results show that only one in ten residents want things to go back to the way they were before the Coronavirus pandemic. Better community spirit is high on their list of things they want to see continuing once the pandemic is over.  What are your thoughts? How do we make this happen? What would persuade you to get (more) involved in your community?
