Councillor Urges Residents to Respond to Highways Consultation
Callington’s Cornwall Councillor has urged as many people as possible to take part in the official Cormac consultation on the proposed highways improvements in Callington Town Centre.

Andrew Long, The Mebyon Kernow representative for the town, made the call following the publishing of the revised Cormac proposals for the usage of the Section 106 monies received following the Tesco store opening in August 2010.

“This is the public’s chance to influence the final works that are done in the town in the spring of next year.  The majority of the proposals are a reflection of the regeneration working group set up last year to analyse the responses from the 600 plus responses to my consultation and I am pleased that Cormac have taken the views of these people into account. There are still controversial parts of the proposal and I personally disagree on the positioning of the proposed controlled pedestrian crossing over the A388 but, like the others, I will be using the process to make my point again.” said Cllr Long.

“I have also written to the author of the document to express my concern regarding the conclusions set out by Cormac. The issue of the crossing did not have overwhelming support or, for that matter, overwhelming opposition, and I believe that this should be made clear to the people of the community.  As I have said before, I do support a crossing but not in the position shown, but do feel that it should be made clear to the residents that the first conclusion was not correct.” He added.

The consultation will continue until 31st December and residents can either fill in a response form in the Town Council offices (where the designs are on show, between 9am and 2pm Monday to Friday), or reply online by visiting www.cornwall.gov.uk and proceeding to the Highways Consultation page.
