Healthy Streets Penzance

The aim of the Healthy Streets PZ scheme is to reduce traffic and pollution levels in the town centre and create a better environment for all, allowing space for people to move around safely and comfortably. The scheme is also part of the wider ambition to promote sustainable transport and tackle climate change, and make Penzance a thriving place for the future.

Healthy Streets PZ scheme partners are using this site to give you opportunities to share your views about the scheme and to keep you informed about progress.


We are now working on the second phase of the scheme and are seeking the views of local residents, businesses and visitors on the draft proposals.

The Phase 2 proposals are to:

  • Introduce a 20mph speed limit in Penzance town centre and the residential areas up to and including Alexandra Road;
  • Modify road signage to direct more traffic to the town centre car parks, and through traffic to use the A30;
  • Modify Western Promenade Road to provide enhanced crossing facilities and to change the environment to encourage traffic to avoid the town centre when travelling across Penzance; and
  • Formalise the parking on Alexandra Road to maximise parking availability and provide new crossing points while maintaining a good flow of traffic associated with the directional signage changes to Penzance which will see an increased use of Alexandra Road.

This phase will be part-funded through money awarded to Cornwall Council from the Government’s Active Travel Fund, with the remainder of the funding being sought from the Town Deal.

Depending on the results of the statutory consultation, our aim is for work on delivering this phase to begin in April 2021 and to be completed by the end of June 2021.
