Governance review underway with public meetings being held and an external group appointed

The review of the governance arrangement for Cornwall Council has begun. Meetings of the Constitution and Governance Committee have launched the process and the Council's Leader has appointed a Governance External Review Group (GREG). GREG will take evidence from all interested parties and will make its recommendations to the Constitution and Governance Committee.

Various governance models being considered include:

  • Directly elected Mayor for Cornwall
  • Strong Leader and Cabinet model (the current system)
  • Committee system (the system that used to operate in Cornwall County Council and district councils up until the late 1990s.

Public meetings are being held in a number of venues across Cornwall to allow residents to hear more about the process and to give their thoughts on what they would like to see come out of the exercise.

More details of what is involved can be viewed on the Council's governance review website page. See below also a bitesize guide to the process.
