Drop into St John’s Hall to see the plans for the improvements to Penzance Promenade

Cornwall Council News feed - Wed, 07/17/2019 - 12:36


Residents and businesses are invited to come and see how plans for a major Cornwall Council funded resurfacing scheme to revitalise Penzance promenade are shaping up.

We’re holding drop in events on Friday 19 and Saturday 20 July from 10am – 3pm at St John’s Hall in Penzance to share the proposed final design and give you the opportunity to have your say.

The resurfacing scheme will revitalise Penzance promenade so that residents and visitors can enjoy Cornwall’s only Victorian promenade for years to come.

We’ve already had feedback from residents who came along to give their views at an event held on the Promenade in May.  We’ve also been talking to groups, including local Cornwall Council members, Penzance Town Council, Penzance BID, local environment and heritage groups and schools in the area for their opinion on how the Promenade should look.

The feedback from these events will now be displayed at this public exhibition on 19 and 20 July  in St John’s Hall.  The re-surfacing scheme and other works are anticipated to begin this autumn.

Improvements to the promenade are due to be completed and ready ahead of the Tour of Britain road cycling event in 2020 when the eyes of the sporting world will be on Penzance as the field of world class cyclists assemble on the promenade for the start of the race.

Cornwall Councillor for Penzance Promenade Jim McKenna says: “It is brilliant that so many people of all ages have already taken part in the consultation and engagement events to date.

The Public Exhibition of the plans for the Prom reflect a number of the ideas suggested and will provide anyone dropping in on Friday or Saturday with the chance to have their questions answered.

Everything is currently going as scheduled for the new surface to be complete in June next year before Golowan. I am particularly pleased to confirm that there will be a safe and accessible link provided between the Prom and the access to Newlyn Green which many people have requested. 2020 looks like being a fantastic year for our town, with plenty to celebrate, culminating in the ‘Grand Depart’ of the Tour of Britain cycle race on September 06 and reflects the collective efforts of many people including the BID, the Chamber of Commerce and the Town Council in addition to Cornwall Council. ‘Love Penzance.’”

Cornwall Council cabinet portfolio holder for transport Geoff Brown said: “We’ve already had lots of ideas from local people on how the area should look and these have contributed to this final proposed design. Regenerating the promenade, which has taken a battering over recent years, will encourage more visitors to come to the area which will in turn contribute to the local economy. ”

Meiloci Landscape Architects are undertaking the design for the re-surfacing of the Promenade. They have already organised a series of hands- on creative workshops with schools and colleges, as well as the community consultation event in May, to enable the local community to help co-design this iconic public space for Penzance.

The Penzance promenade re-surfacing scheme is a key part of Cornwall Council’s ambition to provide a Mount’s Bay trail and wider Bay to Bay cycling and walking trail.  A designated cycle route adjacent to the Promenade will be developed and in time, the plan is to see the Mount’s Bay route continue to the north coast via St Erth, Hayle and St Ives, connecting communities, attracting visitors and creating economic and cultural opportunities for West Cornwall.

The Penzance promenade scheme is the first phase of investment in the Promenade ahead of a longer term regeneration and coastal protection scheme proposed by the Environment Agency.
