Penzance Council and COVID-19 Update

Penzance Council wants to ensure that everyone stays safe and well during these uncertain times.

Here is a list of organisations that can offer help and support and information.

We feel that it is essential to be proactive and consider the risks posed by Covid-19, particularly older people and those with underlying health conditions.

Penzance Council will continue to act in the best interests of the community and although the news is deeply disturbing, we feel we are making informed and appropriate decisions to reduce the risks associated with the COVID-19 virus.

We have decided to close the council office to callers. If you need to pay your allotment rent  or purchase a car parking permit please call the office and we will advise you.

The public toilets also remain open and our cleaning contractors are devising an enhanced cleaning regime.  (Wherrytown and Princess May male toilets are closed due to vandalism.)

All council and committee meetings are cancelled. We will be looking at options to allow us to conduct the business of the council remotely and will keep you all updated.
