The next meeting of Tintagel Parish Council was due to place on Wednesday 1st April but in light of the present difficult circumstances, the meeting will not go ahead. We will update you with regards to the May meeting in due course. However, we will still find a less formal way to agree our approach to providing local support to the community and business will continue.
The Clerk is in constant communication with the Chairman and all the Parish Councillors, and decisions will still be made.
At the present time, the Parish Council is putting in place arrangements to work with Cornwall Council’s local Community Link Officer (CLO) and teams across the authority.
If you know of any local residents who need support, or if there are any local issues related to the COVID-19 response, please let the Parish Council know. We will forward the information through to the CLO, who will be best placed to organise a response from the relevant team at Cornwall Council and associated partner organisations.
To pass information on, please contact the Parish Clerk.
