Beach Development Could Create Jobs
8:01am 9th March 2014
There is a promise of new jobs for Cornwall as a multi-million pound project at Carbis Bay gets funding.
Plans would see the beachfront get a complete facelift including a water sports centre, restaurant and community hub.
Its owners reckon 65 people will get work there.
Tourism bosses say the half a million pound grant from government is excellent news for the local economy.
Stephen Baker, owner of the Carbis Bay Hotel & Spa said: "We are absolutely delighted to have been awarded the Coastal Communities Fund grant - it will go a long way towards helping us deliver our flagship regeneration project and support sustainable economic growth in Carbis Bay.
"The beachfront regeneration will benefit the local community and local economy, and help to reduce the seasonality of the tourism industry in West Cornwall."
Malcolm Bell, Head of Visit Cornwall added: "The awarding of the Coastal Communities Fund grant is excellent news not only for the Carbis Bay Hotel and Spa, but also for the wider Cornish tourism industry. Stephen Baker has shown confidence in investing in the hotel at a time when many other businesses are reluctant to spend, and once complete the beachfront development will be a huge asset to Carbis Bay, St Ives and West Cornwall."
