Update on First Kernow meeting at Summercourt

Thanks to the sixty-plus people, who attended last night’s meeting at the New Memorial Hall in Summercourt to find out more about First Kernow’s plans for bus services in the area.

It was a very positive meeting and I am especially grateful to Alex Carter, the managing director of First Kernow, and four members of his management team, for coming to meet local people in the village.

Further to my blog post on Monday, Mr Carter gave a firm commitment to include an hourly stop at Summercourt (both directions of the Newquay / Truro route) in the very near future. 

He intends to work with Cornwall Council to sort out the details and I gave a commitment to further consult with residents where appropriate. The change will then have to be agreed through the traffic commissioner, though this could take a number of weeks.
