Cornwall and Scilly Urban SurveyCornwall and Scilly Urban Survey
Cornwall and Scilly Urban Survey (CSUS) is a groundbreaking initiative aimed at capturing the quality and distinctive character of the historic environment for successful and sustainable economic regeneration. The result is a comprehensive information resource for 19 towns across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

This resource is being used by local authorities, architects, private developers, development agencies, residents, visitors, community groups and others and can help to ensure that any new development is sympathetic to an area.
It is already a national exemplar, being the first project of its kind to carry out a characterisation-based assessment of the historic urban environment specifically to inform and support a regional economic regeneration programme.

The Grove Hotel, FalmouthFalmouth Heritage Economic Regeneration Scheme
This ambitious scheme to transform the historic areas in a seaside resort town attracted nationwide attention, created jobs and led to millions of pounds of additional income for businesses.

The Falmouth Heritage Economic Regeneration Scheme (HERS) was a project worth almost £2 million with more than £300,000 coming from the Objective One ERDF (European Regional Development Fund). It began in 2000 and finished in 2005. While there are now several similar schemes in key towns around Cornwall, Falmouth HERS was the first of its kind to receive Objective One investment.

King Harry FerryKing Harry Ferry
The seventh King Harry Ferry, launched into service in May 2006, offers a more environmentally friendly, quiet, efficient and extended service on the River Fal. Because it is larger and more fuel efficient the ferry will reduce the length and amount of car journeys in the region, encourage more visitors and reduce emissions by 75 per cent.

£981,750 of Objective One ERDF (European Regional Development Fund) was invested in the £3 million project which will help to ensure the future of the company and means a sustainable replacement and repair plan can be drawn up.
