On Wednesday I attended a community meeting which approved the draft Parish Plan. The people of Illogan in partnership with the Parish Council have set out how they want their community to progress over the coming years.
The chairman, Cllr David Ekinsmyth, made a very good point. He intends that our parish plan should be the basis of Cornwall Cpouncil's planning for the parish. This is the way we need to look at things. We need to take control over our own affairs in Cornwall and let Cornwall Council and, through them, the Westminster parliament know that the people of Cornwall are the best suited, qulified and placed to direct Cornish affairs.
