Consultation on Next Phase of St Austell Civic Pride Regeneration Works
Cornwall County Council is consulting on the next phase of the £3.7 million St Austell Civic Pride regeneration project.
The project is funded by the St Austell Civic Pride Partnership, which consists of Objective One, the South West of England Regional Development Agency, Restormel Borough Council and Cornwall County Council.
As a result of savings made on the initial phase of works around Trinity Church and along Trevarthian Road, the second phase of works is able to be brought forward and Cornwall County Council is consulting on the next stage of the project ahead of schedule.
The next phase of works will focus on High Cross Street, Biddicks Court and Cemetery Park areas and the various Traffic Regulation Orders (TRO's) proposing changes to access and parking. These proposals are now available for comment, with a deadline for comments to arrive no later than 30th September 2007.
Details have been posted on-street and larger scale drawings are available on display in the Engine House, which is open from 10am – 1pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and from 1pm to 4pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The proposals are again in line with the recommendations of the St Austell Civic Pride Initiative and incorporate extensive use of high quality local granite.
Biddick's Court, as the main thoroughfare between the main town centre car park and the shops, is to receive a substantial facelift generating a pleasant public space, complemented with trees, seating and feature lighting. It is hoped that this will facilitate consideration for street cafés and markets. Access for deliveries and to private off-highway parking will remain.
High Cross Street will receive wider, granite paved footways with raised, table-top crossing points and provision of short term parking opposite the Post Office. A new footway will be created on the eastern side adjacent to Cemetery Park, allowing enhancement of the park entry points.
In Cemetery Park, consideration is being given to replacement of at least some of the boundary wall with railings. The use of decorative gating, careful thinning and tidying of the existing trees would result in a more open and therefore safer aspect to the area. The park would also benefit from a new network of paths, seating and lighting to complete its makeover.
The on-line facility can be used for viewing and responding to traffic consultations. This can be accessed by visiting: www.cornwall.gov.uk/TrafficConsult once registered, you will be able to submit responses to this and other current traffic consultations. Responses may also be made in writing to: Highway Design Group, Western Group Centre, Radnor Road, Scorrier, Redruth TR16 5EH.
Plans of the proposed scheme may be viewed at the County Council offices at Western Group Centre, Radnor Road, Scorrier, near Redruth. Anyone wanting more information about the proposed scheme may contact Cornwall County Council Highways on 01872 222000 or by emailing [email protected]
Cornwall County Council welcomes comments and feedback on the proposed scheme by 30th September 2007, including any comments of support, suggestions for improvement or objections - giving the reasons why these are made.
Responses will be considered before determining whether the scheme will proceed as proposed, as funding allows.
Please quote Consultation Reference Number C04025 on all correspondence.
