Julie Larter FSLCC, Carlyon Parish Council and St Austell Bay Parish Council says, “Due to Community Governance (CG), Cornwall Council is now evaluating their Local Maintenance Partnership Scheme and I have been influential in changing the scheme from its current format. I understood that studying CG would add value to my councils but my research has gone one step further and is now influencing the principal authority! So a huge thank you to Elisabeth Skinner MBE and the CG Teaching Team.”
