Transition Penwith Information April 2013

SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES ACT
On 16th April, Cornwall Council will be voting on the future of the Sustainable Communities Act in Cornwall. The Act radically changes the way local people can relate to central government, allowing us to address community decline through a bottom-up process. The Act can make local ideas for how to reverse community decline in Cornwall a reality. But it can only happen if Cornwall Council uses the Act. If the motion fails, people in Cornwall would be prevented from using the Act and would not be able to use its considerable powers to fight community decline. On 16th April, they will be voting to decide whether to use the Act. Spare five minutes to write to the leaders of all party groups in Cornwall Council asking that they vote in favour.

We know that a high proportion of our population already have an interest in regenerating local resilience - on a practical as well as an emotional level. If you haven't yet got a copy of Resilient Penwith - our 136 page paperback directory - then get one now. This handbook is designed to help more people tap into that network and lead them to resources within the local community which can build:

· food security
· energy security
· health security
· financial security

The book is available for £5 + £1 postage from :
