Five projects to transform Truro with £25 million have now been created - and it is time for people to have their say.

Truro Town Deal Board has chosen each one for its potential to boost the economy, create jobs and homes, and celebrate the city’s identity and heritage.

These projects - and potentially others - will continue to involve the wider community, to get feedback from Truro residents, businesses and visitors.

People can head to the website to give their feedback, or write a letter of support backing the vision and ideas.

Carole Theobald, chair of Truro Town Deal Board, said: “It’s essential that we develop an investment plan that meets the objectives set by Government, by focusing on projects that are deliverable and transformational by 2026, also fit together to tell a story of how we can regenerate our city.”


Work to develop Truro’s Town Investment Plan will continue during autumn, with the board intending to submit its final plan to the Government in January 2021.

The projects are:

1. Connecting Truro - Comprising of a lifting bridge from Boscawen to Newham and upgraded pedestrian and cycle connections across the city, including Newham Trail upgrades.

2. New life for city centre buildings - An aim to create homes, workspaces and hospitality businesses from existing buildings in the city centre.

3. Truro Harbour & Lemon Quays - To connect the harbour quays via walkways, new marina facilities and pontoons, plus repurpose harbour buildings for business use, together with upgrading Lemon Quay piazza, including a part roof cover.

4. Boscawen Park Health and Wellbeing Hub - To feature leisure and recreational activities, such as indoor climbing wall, water sports, studio hire and extended play areas. Also to include remediation works to eroding riverbank and connection to duck pond.

5. Heritage and future - A series of interlinked projects that celebrate the best of Truro’s heritage and past. Includes a digital museum, community hub and 5G network.
