Have a say on technology park


Members of the public will be able to give their views on proposals for an £18.4 million scheme for a new technology park and road improvements at the A391 in Carluddon in September.

A week of drop in consultation events has been organised by Cornwall Council between Saturday September 8 and Friday September 14 to give people an opportunity to have their say on the scheme.

The new scheme, called the ‘Carluddon A391 road improvement and technology park’, would bring a new 2.8ha technology park to Carluddon, as well as new section of the A391. The proposals also cover the first employment building and masterplan for the remaining employment land.

“I welcome the opportunity to be part of this project that is intended to bring investment that will lead to jobs in this area of Cornwall,” said Chris Ridgers, Cornwall Council portfolio holder for the economy. “The project will focus on environmental technology jobs which will be a key area for national growth and I am keen to promote and develop this sector in the china clay area.”

After the consultation the results will be evaluated and the proposal will be finalised ahead of the submissions of the planning applications in December.
