A community advisory panel has been established to act as liaison between the local community and Grantscape, the accountable body for the community fund.
The panel comprises 7 persons:
Election of panel members autumn 2016
When the panel was set up, it was agreed that the elected members would serve for 3 years. New elections were due in autumn 2016. A leaflet was delivered to every household in the parish of Grampound with Creed inviting residents to put themselves forward for the positions on the panel. The closing date for nominations was 7 October. For a copy of the leaflet, see nominations sought.
By 7 October, 7 residents had put their names forward. After close of nominations, the 7 persons were advised that an election would then be held. However, as is the case with elections generally, a few days is usually allowed after close of nominations to see if any candidate wishes to withdraw their nomination. In this case, two of the candidates decided to withdraw leaving the other five to be elected unopposed. For details of the successful candidates, see panel members.
