    Proposed motion: Newquay Town Council believes that the way Cornwall is governed is extremely important to our local residents. We note proposals for a possible change to a powerful Mayor of Cornwall with their own staff, budget and choice of Cabinet. We believe that such a system should only be implemented Only if the people of Cornwall support it. We call on Cornwall Council and our local Cornwall Councillors, to ensure that there is a referendum of all voters in Cornwall on whether to introduce this significant change, as set out in the relevant legislation.
