Work to start on Fore St regeneration


The “final piece in the jigsaw” to regenerate St Austell town centre will get underway next week.

The £1.3 million scheme on Fore Street will mark the final phase of town centre improvements which were started with White River Place.

Major street works will see the current street surface replaced with Cornish granite paving and improved drainage.

Chris Ridgers, cabinet member for economy and regeneration at Cornwall Council, said: “The redevelopment of Fore Street in St Austell is a priority for Cornwall Council because it builds upon the significant private sector investment in recent years.

“We want to make sure that the benefits are felt throughout the town centre and Fore Street is the final piece of the jigsaw. A thriving town centre will be a driver for the economy of the area and for business confidence.”

The work will start on July 18 and last approximately ten months.
