Tell the Council how to run the Cornish Economy

Deadline for responses is Friday 22 January 2010

Here is an opportunity for all of us to tell the Council what we think of their economic priorities and strategy.
Like
* growth is not sustainable, so don't aim for growth, it is self defeating
* resilience is the key, so aim for the Cornish Diet (80%+ of all food produced in Cornwall), and encourage Cornish industry by contracting as far as possible Cornish companies
* base all plans exclusively on renewable energy, not fossil fuels as these will get progressively more expensive and scarce
* encourage green tourism based on low impact developments, public transport, renewable energy, local food and other local products and attractions.
and more ...

Economy Green Paper
Friday 27 November 2009
Cornwall Council Statement of Economic Priorities and Strategic Intent:
Towards a distinctive, high-value, knowledge-based 'green' Cornwall with opportunity for all
  
Cornwall Council's first 'Green Paper' is on the economy. Green Papers produced by government have traditionally been consultation documents, and this one by Cornwall Council is no exception in that it presents the council's ideas on a way forward and asks for detailed feedback. It sets out our initial ideas on priorities for Cornwall's economic development - both growth and regeneration - and how the council might work with partners to deliver these priorities and we invite comments from partners, businesses and the wider community.

With the help of the responses and ideas submitted in response to this green paper, we can then put together specific proposals for Cornwall that are likely to have widespread support.

Please respond to the prompts and questions and give your views on other relevant matters of concern. We are committed to working in partnership with all major players and the community in Cornwalls development, and we particularly value your contributions which will turn this green paper into definitive proposals and propositions.

This is a major opportunity to have your say in the future of Cornwall, and we hope to hear from you and to work with you to make our aspirations a reality.

The draft consultation document can be found on the Council's website.

Responses can be made via the on-line form which can also be found at the address below.
