cornwall council communications

Cornwall comms – could it be you?

Local Government Communicator Peter Holt writes: “If you imagine that Cornwall Council is a stuffy and limited upper-tier county council – think again – it’s been unitary for nearly 8 years, and runs a broader range of services than a London Borough. If you think that the local media is sleepy and sparse – think again – as there are dozens of media outlets, and the much-listened-to lunchtime BBC phone in show will routinely lead on council stories. The council down here reaches into residents’ consciousness much more than in many other parts of the country, especially London.”
