New uses for old building
A feasibility study has recently been commissioned to investigate
the possibility of restoring the former assembly rooms in
Trevenson Street, Camborne, for use as a community facility.
They will also be looking at all other possible uses of the
space and calculating whether the venture could be viable
The study is being managed by Mike Horrocks, Kerrier District
Council's Community Economic Development Officer and is being
joint funded by the Regional Development Agency, Kerrier District
Council and Cornwall County Council.
The consultant employed on the project is the Director of
Falmouth Quay Consultants, Peter Cowling. Peter previously
worked on the Maritime museum in Falmouth. The architect who
will be drawing up future plans and costing any potential
developments will be Robert Allen.
Consultants are working with the developers who own the building,
the Urban Regeneration Company, the Regional Development Agency,
the Objective One supported Community Regeneration Team and
Kerrier District Council to ensure the study is as comprehensive
Antonia Pickup, Community Regeneration Officer for Camborne,
said: "Successful renovation of the building is vital
to the whole redevelopment of the Trevu Road site behind it
and will fit with other proposed developments in the area."
