What Redruth's big cash injection will be spent on

Published by Sarah Yeoman at 7:00am 21st September 2019.

It has been revealed what a big cash injection for Redruth town centre will be spent on.

Pirate FM told you how 69 high streets across the country have been given a funding boost.

The government cash boost will help to revive historic shopping areas - including Redruth and Plymouth.

They will get a share of the £13.7 million awarded to 10 towns in the South West, following a successful funding bid by Cornwall Council to support regeneration and improvements in the area.

Officials say that residents could see "new life breathed into Redruth high street" as part of the scheme.

What will the money be spent on?

The funding will be used for a variety of projects, including:

  • Bringing derelict and underused town centre historic buildings back into economic use
  • Improving pedestrian routes from the railway station and car parks through the town centre to the newly opened Kresen Kernow and to the creative community at Krowji
  • Enhancing the programme of events and activities marketing Redruth as a year-round visitor destination

"Hot on the heels of the opening of Kresen Kernow, which protects the historic old Redruth Brewery building at the heart of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site, this is fantastic news for residents and businesses. 

"Redruth is now set to receive more much-needed funding to help support and revitalise their historic high street.

"This funding will help regenerate public areas and renovate valued historic buildings in Redruth town centre, attracting more people to come and live, work, and visit the town."

Cornwall Council leader, Julian German
