Cornwall Council's leader has pledged to "build a build a better Cornwall for all"

Hayle Independent councillor John Pollard has been voted in unopposed, after the local elections.

In his first official speech John said that his aim was to encourage a consistent and collaborative approach.

"I first joined Hayle Town Council in 1982 to serve my local community and create a better quality of life" he said.  "I wanted to make a difference.  After working for the people of Hayle for 30 years , I decided I wanted to work for the whole community of Cornwall and so stood for election to the new Council in 2009".

 "My aim as Leader is to work with all Members to create a "can do" positive and responsive Council and to build better relationships with all our partners.  We need to fight for fairer funding, to bring investment into the county and to build the best, most inclusive vibrant and successful Cornwall possible.

"To achieve this we need to draw upon all the talent in the Council and I want to encourage everyone to work together to best of their ability to make a difference to the future of Cornwall. "

The Duchy's Independent and Liberal Democrat groups have formed a new Council administration. Labour and Mebyon Kernow groups have pledged to work with the new alliannce.

UKIP has said it would co-operate with the alliance where it can. The Conservative group announced last week that it would not be joining the alliance.  

62 year old John Pollard was brought up in Hayle where he attended Penpol County Primary School and Humphry Davy Grammar School.  

He later worked as a history teacher at Humphry Davy School for 24 years before retiring in 2004.
