Positive feedback for BF scheme


Neighbours of BF Adventure, the charity and outdoor adventure centre near Penryn, have heard about how plans to improve facilities will benefit the whole community.

At two public consultation events on April 27 and 28, residents of Mabe and Treverva heard from the team behind the BF Adventure Project about how new buildings and updated facilities are urgently needed at the 60-acre site.

Treverva resident Gilly Bennett said: “By improving the facilities at Goodygrane, this opens up opportunities for everyone in the community. The work they do is very valuable. Children need to experience the outdoors.”

Areas of concern raised at the consultation events included an increase in volume of visitors and traffic to the site and height of buildings.

But chief executive Tony Hogg explained: “This development is much more about improving the quality of the facilities, we do not expect the quantity of people we work with to change significantly.

“We had some questions about the scale of the buildings and we were happy to confirm that these are not multi-storey structures.

“They have been designed to be low-lying, use local materials and complement the beautiful natural environment we have at our Goodygrane site.”

In addition to the public consultation events, BF Adventure will be holding an open day on Saturday, May 15 from 12noon to 2pm.
