North Cornwall Branch to Launch Campaign at Bodmin Protest
The Mebyon Kernow branch in North Cornwall will launch their Cornwall Council election campaign on Saturday at the protest to protect Bodmin's town centre, football club and Priory Park.

Background:
The Bodmin Master Plan has been produced over the past ten years and cost an estimated £400,000 in consultation fees plus a huge amount for publication costs. The new plan has ignored the plans of the past and is concentrating on building roads at both ends of Bodmin. The major controversy  is that the planned roads will mean the compulsory purchase of a house, green land in the centre of Bodmin near to Priory Park, and the Football Club’s pitch and practice pitch.

The implication of any such proposal would mean:

  • The removal of the local football club from the centre of town.
  • The loss of the children's skate park.
  • A potential threat of increased flooding.
  • Pedestrianisation of Fore Street which sounds good but is opposed by shop keepers due to the street being a hill with parking only at the bottom.
  • The killing of the Town centre by a large supermarket on the main entry road into Bodmin.
  • The loss of a firework display area run by the Lions which produces money to feed local charities and activities, run on the football pitch.

Mebyon Kernow North Cornwall
We have three strong candidates in Bodmin for both Local Council and Cornwall Council. In the area of this plan where Lance Kennedy is a local and Cornwall Councillor we have John Gibbs standing for Local and Cornwall Council and we ask for your support to show that the people of Cornwall will not tolerate the destruction of our town centres, decisions behind closed doors, the unnecessary removal of green land from town centres and an apparent public knowledge about actions with those involved denying items.
 
Bring along your flags and your banners to support the opposition to the masterplan and meet Mebyon Kernow's prospective Town and Cornwall councillors for North Cornwall.
