Business and community outreach
Cornwall Council are working with the police to identify sectors of the community who require certain information, such as the care sector, the maritime sector and the environmental sector. Organisations should look out for an invitation to an online outreach session containing information specific to your area this coming week.
To minimise any delays in accessing restricted areas, please have two forms of ID with you: Passports, driving licences or utility, council tax bills or bank statements less than three months old are all valid forms of ID.
Refuse collection days are changing temporarily in some areas affected by the G7 preparations. If your area is affected, Cornwall Council will make contact with you in due course.
G7 community impact
The police have released a community impact timeline to inform local people of the anticipated disruptions that may affect them during the G7 Summit.
