The Opportunity

St Ives is the jewel in Cornwall’s crown. It draws people to live, work and visit, creating and building on a unique community with a rare mix of talents and ideas, along with a concentration of creative, innovative and talented makers, artists and businesses.

We want to build on the rich tapestry of assets in St Ives, from its beautiful coastal scenery and living heritage to its vibrant culture and local community, focussing on the needs of residents, whilst continuing to welcome visitors, embedding sustainability and attracting new enterprise, and supporting the aspirations of the next generation.

Our overall vision and strategy for St Ives has been developed in consultation with our local communities and businesses.

On 9 May 2021 we successfully bid for a Town Deal worth £19.9 million from the Government’s Towns Fund Scheme

Our bid was designed to deliver three key objectives:

  • Generate inclusive green growth and new enterprise, within a year-round economy
  • Support the health, wellbeing and aspiration of all residents in life and work
  • Create opportunities for young people which allow them to flourish

 

Our Town Investment Plan is based around three themes:

  • Low carbon transport system
  • Local skills, jobs and business
  • New and transformed housing and community assets

 

Our Town Investment Plan includes a mix of large-scale transformation projects together with a number of smaller scale community projects which fit within these themes.  You can read our Town Investment Plan here.

The projects will enable us to deliver our vision to level up our economy, bring opportunities for everyone who lives and works here and provide quality employment and real aspiration for all. This will be wrapped in a circular and green economy approach – meeting the needs of all within safe environmental limits – and making St Ives ready for the challenges of the future.
