This year’s budget shows a decrease in the amount of precept requested from the taxpayer of Penryn. Having completed a number of projects the council are in a position to make significant savings.
Significant savings have been made with the Neighbourhood Plan, where unspent grant funding from the 2018 to 2019 financial year will be used to complete the project in 2019 to 2020.
Projects for 2019 to 2020 include the repair to the Town Hall roof, a heat reduction project in the library and work in Glasney Field.
The budget also includes the running of Penryn Museum and subsidising the community halls (Temperance Hall and Town Hall) ensuring a very reasonable rate can be charged to residents and community groups.
The Town Council also maintains footpaths and verges, Doorstep Green in Glasney Valley, benches, floral displays and the Glebe Cemetery.
