A NEW GREEN COMMUNITY SPACE FOR SALTASH
About the Project
Saltash Town Council working on behalf of The Saltash Town Team have been successful in securing Town Vitality Funding from Cornwall Council to undertake a feasibility study for developing a new green multi-use community space in the retail heart of the town centre.
During November 2022, a brief was drawn up for the feasibility study and advertised via Contracts Finder. Tenders were sought from companies with expertise and an excellent track record in designing public realm schemes in other towns, undertaking meaningful community consultation and providing creative and innovative solutions with clear costs accompanied by a robust project timetable.
Following assessment of the tenders and a shortlisting process, including interviews by members of The Saltash Town Team, Architecture by Studio Hive and their experienced team have been contracted to carry out the feasibility work.
The preferred scheme will be finalised by the end of September 2023 and Saltash Town Team hope that further funding will enable the project to be delivered leading to positive environmental, social and economic benefits.
Thank you to everyone who took part in our public consultation in June/July 2023.
We’ve had over 220 responses to our feedback survey and these responses are now being analysed by the project team.
The feedback will inform the recommendations presented to the Town Team at the end of September 2023.
Saltash Town Team/Council will then seek further funding to enable the project to progress with the ambition being to achieve positive environmental, social and economic benefits for the town.
