Bodmin Vision 2030

Bodmin 2030 and Beyond – a Vision for Bodmin

Local elected representatives, business groups and community interests in the town have all come together to agree their ambitions for the future of Bodmin.

The resulting statement (which can be read in full in the Useful Documents section below) sets out the Vision for the town and the Top Priority Areas for Action which will help to deliver that Vision.

It is designed to be an ambitious, realistic and credible ‘Agenda for Bodmin’.

 

The Mayor of Bodmin

The local partners supporting the statement are all committed to working together to deliver the Vision and associated Priority Areas for Action. The Priority Areas broadly fall under three distinct themes which are intended to summarise the main directions of travel for the town:

  • Building a Stronger Community
  • Destination Bodmin
  • Accelerating Economic Growth

 

In the short term, the intention is to direct efforts through four local groups (outlined below). There will be Town Council representatives on each group and a standing invitation to Bodmin’s Cornwall Councillors and other partners to attend each group according to their primary interests and availability. You can read more about the delivery proposals, the groups responsible for them and who to contact, by clicking on the relevant box below. At present there are no additional resources, so delivery is dependent on some redirection of existing resources, together with goodwill and voluntary action!

The partnership which has supported the work so far is an informal collaboration of local organisations and interests committed to delivering Bodmin’s potential. An informal steering group based around representatives of each of the below delivery groups and key stakeholders in the Vision launch – including Rev’d Paul Holley, Fin Irwin, Phil Ugalde, Cornwall Councillor Pat Rogerson, and Bodmin’s Mayor & Deputy Mayor, Councillors Jeremy Cooper & Phil Cooper – has been formed and will meet every six weeks. In addition, the whole partnership plans to meet twice a year to take a strategic overview of progress, determine any changes to priorities, and renew the impetus to follow through on Priority Actions.

 

The Vision was formally unveiled to invited guests from across Cornwall at St Petroc’s Church at an event on Friday 12 July. The event was designed to celebrate the partnerships of local Bodmin-based interests, to promote the Vision to new audiences and generate further momentum for the delivery of improvements in the town.
