What do you like about Camborne, what improvements would you like to see and what would encourage you to visit the town centre more often?
Those are some of the questions in a survey that is being widely distributed as part of work currently underway to bid for £25m of government investment.
Launched in November 2019, the Government’s Towns Fund Deal aims to regenerate town centres, boost businesses and improve infrastructure. Camborne is one of four towns in Cornwall selected to participate.
“We’re hoping that as many people as possible will take part in the survey as this is a golden opportunity to build on Camborne’s amazing entrepreneurial heritage and forge an exciting future,” said Anna Pascoe, BID Camborne Manager and chair of the Town Deal Board.
“We are looking at a range of potential projects to take forward but knowing what the local community wants and needs is vital. Camborne was once Cornwall’s prosperous economic heart, but the decline of tin-mining has resulted in high levels of social and economic deprivation.
“This is our chance to make a real difference – one that should kickstart prosperity and help establish the town as a visitor destination. Board members are already working hard on options for the plan which is going to be submitted in October. A website will go live at the beginning of August and we’re asking for responses to the survey by 31 July.”
