Falmouth is already recognised as a beautiful coastal town, but for those of us that live and work here it’s much more than that.

Over the years Falmouth has developed into an exciting and diverse place. Growing tourism, dock and property development, new maritime activities and growth in higher education bring huge opportunities for our town, but they create big challenges too.

We need to make the most of those opportunities and tackle the challenges so that the needs of the community are met without harming our options for the future.

To do that we need your help. It’s important to us that we have a balanced community whose views and opinions are heard. We need the people who know and love Falmouth to be part of the Town’s decision making process, so that we can make changes for the better, together.
