People in Camborne are being asked what they want to see in the proposed Basset Community Hub in Basset Road Camborne.
The day-long consultation event will take place on Thursday 18 August from 10am to 4pm and attendance can either be in person or via the internet.
Plans to transform the former council offices in the Basset Centre and the White House are part of Camborne Town Deal’s flagship project to regenerate the town centre. Managed by Camborne Town Council, the aim is to create a thriving education and cultural hub that will inspire local enterprise, showcase local heritage and history, provide space for local community events and increase the town’s library provision.
The programme starts at 10am with a presentation about the project’s scope and scale, followed by interactive feedback and discussion sessions that explore possibilities and invite ideas.
“This is a really important opportunity for local residents to have their say on how best to re-purpose and re-design these two buildings,” said Camborne Town Council Engagement Officer and Camborne Town Deal board member Rose Hitchens-Todd.
“We are imagining a vibrant and accessible place that houses a diverse range of things to do including watching and taking part in entertainment, holding and visiting exhibitions, learning more about Camborne’s history and engaging people in constructive, forward-thinking activities.
“This event is all about listening to people and getting the feedback we need to start working on the details. We want it to be as accessible as possible, so attendance can either be online or in person.”
The consultation will take place at the Basset Centre in Basset Road. Parking is on site and there is a bus stop directly opposite.
