G7 Summit Community Information Update

Updated 2 June 21

I have asked for clarification re checkpoints and have just had this reply from Cornwall Council.

The attached map is current but if any changes happen they will be on the G7 D&C police site.

  • Four checkpoints will be staffed 24 hours per day, whilst operational
  1. For residents living within the cordoned area, they need 1 piece of photo id and another piece of id showing the home address and that person’s name
  2. For workers going into the cordoned area that they will need one piece of photo id showing their home address and one piece of information showing where they work, such as work ID or an email showing work rota
  3. Holidaymakers staying in the cordoned area will need one piece of photo id and a document or email booking to show where they are staying.

There are no documents checks for people walking or cycling.

G7 And Cornwall Council info flyer

Devon & Cornwall Police and Cornwall Council has launched a campaign around the impact of the G7 Summit on people in the affected areas.

Residents, businesses and visitors are being informed of the key details around disruptions, restrictions and diversions before, during and after the event.

The G7 Summit is taking place between 11-13 June and will host world leaders in St Ives, with Falmouth and Newquay Airport also providing support venues for the event.

The campaign will provide important information relating to disruptions that can be expected in the run up to and during the the Summit. This will include the installation of security fences around key venues; road, rail, aviation, maritime and footpath closures and restrictions and some diversions; all of which are being put in place to ensure the safety and security of the event for both residents and the delegates.

To manage traffic around the venues and keep residents safe, a number of traffic management measures will be put in place, including:

  • In the St Ives and Carbis Bay area the A3074 (St Ives Road) will be closed to all traffic from 9am on 10 June until 11.59pm on 13 June. Security barriers and fencing will be installed from the 4 June and there will be some initial short-term disruption, but full closure is not planned until 0900 on 10 June. The Old Coach Road via Halsetown will be used to provide access to St Ives and delays are expected.
  • In St Ives local amenities will largely remain open, and all beaches other than Carbis Bay will be accessible.
    St Ives town centre and harbour will be open. In Carbis Bay, the section of the South West Coast Path which runs through the Carbis Bay Hotel will be closed with a temporary diversion in place.
  • In Falmouth, where the Maritime Museum at Event Square will be used as the media centre for the G7 Summit, both Grove Place and Maritime car parks will be closed between 27 May and 19 June. Campbeltown Way will be closed to traffic between 27 May and 19 June. The car park in Church Street will be closed for pay and display 10 to 13 June
  • Around Cornwall Airport Newquay – there will be a number of road closures and parking restriction orders in place around the airport for the duration of the event, beginning at 6pm on 9 June, and ending on 11.59pm on 13 June.
  • Some restricted areas in St Ives and Falmouth will require residents and business workers to provide two forms of current identification linked to their home or business address in order to gain access in vehicles to those homes or businesses. These might be a council tax bill, utility bill, bank statement (within the last three months) or driving licence.
  • Businesses within the perimeter and in the immediate vicinity of Cornwall Newquay Airport will be contacted shortly by the Cabinet Office with specific identification requirement instructions.
  • Any delivery driver or service provider seeking entry to restricted areas will need to provide proof of manifest / order confirmation to the address that they are seeking to access along with their personal company ID. The same principle in terms of suitable documentation and ID will need to be presented by any care workers or similar (e.g. charity volunteers who are providing support to residents within the community).
  • Pedestrian access will be restricted in areas of the immediate vicinity of key areas and people will be subject to security checks. Only residents will be allowed access to these areas.

Further security arrangements are still being finalised, but details will be shared as soon as possible.

Face-to-face meetings, leaflets and mailings are among the methods being used to keep in touch with residents who do not have access to online information and police are asking people to share updates with those who have difficulties finding information online. E.g. Private carers letting those they care for that they will need ID to gain access to the restricted area.

Superintendent Jo Hall of Devon & Cornwall Police said: “Our local policing teams and Council community link officers have been working together to engage with communities in St Ives, Falmouth and Newquay since the announcement of the event.

“This campaign aims to further inform and reassure communities about the impact of the event in the local areas and the temporary changes they can expect.

“We are working hard to minimise the impact of the Summit on local communities and we are engaging regularly with residents and other partners in the affected areas. We would encourage residents to speak to their local police officers about any concerns they might have.

“There will be a certain level of disruption caused by the restrictions and closures, but we hope that people will understand that these are essential to ensure a safe and secure event for delegates and the wider community.

We are thankful for the support and understanding of residents and visitors and we hope that the Summit will leave a positive legacy for Cornwall.”

Kate Kennally, Chief Executive of Cornwall Council said: “We are working hard to ensure that hosting the G7 in Cornwall will bring long-term economic benefits for all residents of Cornwall, but it will mean some short-term impact on those living nearest to the venues which are hosting the event. We will work with the Devon and Cornwall Police do all we can to minimise the effect it has, and our priority will remain, as ever, looking after our residents.

A dedicated G7 Summit website, www.dc.police.uk/G7, has been created to provide up-to-the-minute information so that people can stay informed. The website includes useful information including a news section and answers to our most frequently asked questions. There are localised maps of the affected areas which show road closures and restrictions, along with diverted routes, so people in and around the area can plan their journeys.

Click on the link below to view the video of the Q&A live where questions were put towards The Police, Cornwall Council, and reps from the Cabinet Office G7 Taskforce.

Arguably one of the best-kept secrets this year finally broke this weekend… mind you it is only January and with all the COVID news weighing us down it’s surprising we even noticed this little story popping its head out of the blue.

Yes, folks, the circus is officially coming to town, the G7 Summit will be happening in the Carbis Bay Hotel in June – brace yourselves this is going to be a bit of a ride.

Let’s kick things off with a great press release written by Mark Duddridge, Cornwall & Isles of Scilly LEP, an article that takes you on a whistle-stop tour around Cornwall and it’s industrial prowess, both historical and modern, and if you finish this article without learning anything new about Cornwall, you need to read it again. Think of it as homeschooling for grown-ups!

G7 summit is set to take place from 11 to 13 June 2021.
