Cornwall Council is set to spend £1.3billion on major projects including housing, transport and schools.

Details of the council’s capital programme are set to be presented to the full council meeting this week with councillors being asked to approve increasing the total by £145.5million.

The increase is to cover projects included in the council’s budget and housing plans as well as the capital programme for the Tamar Bridge and Torpoint Ferry, a scheme to help town centres and a new community hub for Launceston.

If approved it means the council’s capital programme will total £1.308bn.

For 2020/21 the council is looking to spend £474m on capital projects.

The programme is open ended so it currently runs to 2023/24 “and beyond” in the documents going to council.

These also show where the money is set to be spent, with the biggest share going to the council’s investment programme.
