Town Centre Vitality Fund

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. 

Following this, additional funding was made available from Cornwall Council for other towns, and the Bude Town Team was set up to bid for these pots of money.
