Camborne, Penzance, St Ives and Truro were selected by Central Government in 2019, as four of the 100 towns that will benefit from support from the new Towns Fund. Each area will benefit from up to £25 million of Government funding.
Since then, additional funding has been made available from Cornwall Council for other towns in the County to bid for. Establishing our own Town Team will enable us to make applications and bid for additional funds.
What will the Town Team Do?
The Town Team will create a Bude Town Plan, which will identify and support a small number of strategic projects that will bring economic prosperity to the town.
The Town Team will need membership across the board that represents businesses, local authority and the voluntary sector.
Town Team meetings are in full swing now, we have a good representation across the sectors but there are spaces still available. It is not too late to join the team!
Local MP. Scott Mann attended the last online meeting, where the discussions centred around the Triangle in Bude and plans for improvements to the area.
