St Ives pop-up expo


St Ives Town Deal will shortly be staging a special pop-up public expo on the ground floor of the town’s library.

The event, on April 17, will provide the latest information about how the £19.9 million Town Deal funding from HM Government is being invested to deliver the vision set out in the Town Investment Plan and boost sustainable economic growth in the town.

Hosted by the Town Deal board, with members of the project teams on hand to talk about their exciting and ambitious plans and answer any questions, the expo will include models, plans and drawings of some of the key projects.

The St Ives Town Deal funding supports nine transformation projects that will help develop local skills, jobs and business, provide new and upgraded housing and community facilities and support low carbon modes of transport to create a greener town centre.

“The Town Deal is going to make a real, positive difference to the people who live, work and visit St Ives by improving current assets and funding new ones across the town,” said Gareth Jones, vice chair of St Ives Town Deal board.

“Since being awarded the first part of the funding from the Government last September, everyone involved with the Town Deal has been working incredibly hard to develop the projects so work can start on transforming our town.

“The aim of this expo is to provide an opportunity for the local community to find out more about the projects, to highlight what has already been achieved, and to talk about what lies ahead.”
