The projects in the Public Realm investment cluster supported the conservation of the environment of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly where it contributes to economic regeneration, particularly the economic vitality and viability of our towns and villages.

The historic environment and cultural heritage of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly are fundamental building blocks in the strong sense of regional distinctiveness and identity felt in the area, which in turn is a major contributor to the product of Cornwall. This distinctiveness is a key strength and developing the ability to secure economic benefits from the heritage is a key plank in achieving a sustainable and successful economy.
