Next phase of university development at Tremough to go on show this Thursday
9:00am Tuesday 6th August 2013 in News
Plans for the next phase of development at the university campus in Penryn are to go on show next week when members of the public are invited to find out more and give feedback.
The Heart project involves opening up an acre or so of space between the media centre and the Exchange. Details will be displayed at Penryn Town Hall between 4pm and 7pm next Thursday (Aug 8).
The aims of the scheme are to improve the visitor experience by providing a central hub to connect the academic buildings with Tremough House and its historic parkland; create a new shop and reprographics centre; provide a ‘village green’ at the centre of the campus for students, staff and the wider community to enjoy and to return much of the existing concrete and tarmac to lawn and open up the coastal view from the site.
The development of The Heart was included in the 2008 Campus Masterplan, along with Falmouth University’s Academy for Innovation & Research, the University of Exeter’s Environment and Sustainability Institute and The Exchange, which were completed during the last academic year.
The Heart will be a focal point for meeting, social exchange and learning; will incorporate student work and be used for celebrations such as graduation events.
“We look forward to welcoming as many local people as possible to view our proposals and provide us with feedback to inform the development of our planning application,” said head of capital projects, George Lewis.
“One of the key drivers for this is to encourage more local people to engage with students and staff at the campus, and take pleasure from its history, its beautiful outdoor spaces and its cultural vibrancy.”
