Falmouth Town Council is seeking sponsorship for five roundabouts which it manages.

After entering an agreement with Cornwall Council to take over the maintenance three years ago, the town council is looking for sponsorship to ease the burden on the Council Tax payer.

A spokesman said: It is the town council’s desire to increase the maintenance standards to further enhance and better maintain these roundabouts as it is felt that these amenity assets offer a feeling of wellbeing to the community, as well as offering a pleasing welcome to visitors to the town that complements Falmouth’s association with award-winning parks and gardens.

"In order to lessen the financial burden on the Council Tax payer the council has resolved to seek sponsorship to assist in bringing about this desire."

The council is asking organisations to submit sealed bids for up to five roundabouts.

The roundabouts are: Shingle roundabout Ponsharden; New Union Corner roundabout (nr Falmouth School); Cannons/Anchor roundabout Hillhead; Herbaceous/shrub roundabout Ponsharden (nr Park & Float); Recreation Ground roundabout (nr Falmouth rugby ground).

Application packs can be obtained by emailing a request to simonpenna@falmouthtowncouncil.com and must include a full postal address.
