2024 Online Public Exhibition

The Online Exhibition has now ended.

Camborne residents were asked for their views on revised proposals to improve public spaces and the way people travel around the town centre. The consultation concluded on the 15th May 2024.

The Camborne Renew project has been amended to reflect the views of those who took part in a public consultation last year and the plans are now available to view online and at Council Offices, Dolcoath Ave, Camborne TR14 8SX .

Changes made as a result of previous resident feedback include:

  • there will be more seating and plant greenery in the town centre;
  • additional zebra crossings will be installed on Trelowarren Street and Commercial Street ;
  • 125 spaces within close proximity to Trelowarren Street will offer free parking for up to an hour, and;
  • there will be secure cycle parking in the town.

Earlier proposals for altering the flow of traffic along Trelowarren Street will now no longer take place.

What's next?

We will collate the feedback from the latest 2024 consultation and then provide an update on the next steps for the Renew project.

About the Project

The Camborne Renew project forms part of the Camborne Town Deal Board’s vision to regenerate the heart of Camborne and transform it into a visually appealing, accessible place to live, work, shop and visit.

The Camborne Renew project is about:

  • Enhancing the appearance of the Town Centre
  • Encouraging longer dwell time thereby supporting high street economy
  • Providing a welcoming and safe environment for all users of the town
  • Supporting and adding value to the other Town Deal projects

The Camborne Renew is not about:

  • Pedestrianisation and banning cars
  • Reducing the number of car parking spaces available to high street users

Delivered by Cornwall Council, the team leading on the Camborne Renew project, will be working with community groups through 2024 to finalise the project designs.

About the Camborne Town Deal

Camborne has been allocated up to £23.7 million from the Government's Town Deal Fund to support 11 capital projects that will improve the town’s prosperity, infrastructure and sustainable economic growth.

The Camborne Town Deal programme is supported by a group of volunteers who help to lead the process of preparing and implementing the Town Investment Plan.

The board is composed of a mix of representatives from the private, public and community sectors who are committed to improving their local area. Members of the boards include local businesses, community stakeholders, Councillors from Cornwall Council and Town Council, and the area’s MP.

  • A public exhibition was held on the 24th of April 2023 to present the concept designs for the Camborne Town Deal – Renew scheme. A public survey commenced on the 24th of April 2023 and finished on the 29th of May 2023.  Following the public survey, the project team have worked on amending the designs to incorporate the elements that had public support, including improved pedestrian crossings and removing elements of the scheme that did not have public support such as the proposed traffic flow alterations.

     

    £2.8 million of Government funding (Department for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities) is allocated to the Camborne Renew project. The funding is only available for the Town Deal approved capital projects and is available until March 2026. Should this project not have public support then no further optioneering will be carried out and the money will be returned to the funder.
