Celebrations at Tate St Ives

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Fri, 13/10/2017 - 15:34

Cornwall Council today Friday 13 October congratulated Tate St Ives on their reopening and unveiling of a fantastic extension which will see visitors benefit from a doubling of the gallery space and spectacular new studios for learning activities which have been created to meet growing demand from schools and families across Cornwall.

The project to extend the gallery finally gives Tate St Ives enough space to accommodate the quarter of a million visitors it welcomes each year and to display a year-round exhibition of works by the St Ives Modernists for the first time.  Tate St Ives has generated over £11m each year for the local economy and this redevelopment will ensure that the gallery remains a ‘must see’ cultural destination.

Cornwall Council created Tate St Ives in 1993 and has supported the project to extend and refurbish the gallery from the beginning, providing £4.5m of capital funding towards acquiring the land for the extension, designing and delivering this stunning new gallery. Funding has also been provided by the Arts Council England, Heritage Lottery Fund and Coastal Communities Fund as well as many private trusts, foundations and individuals.

Councillor Paynter, Council Leader, said: “Cornwall Council understands what Tate St Ives and the wider cultural sector has to offer the people of Cornwall and the world – it celebrates the unique artistic history of the county, and continues to champion the importance of creativity in our lives and in our future.

“The Tate delivers value not only to our own communities, but also in terms of our national and international profile. By investing in Tate St Ives we are supporting culture but are also generating almost 200 jobs in the wider local economy as a result of increased visitor numbers over the coming decade.”

Councillor Robinson, Cornwall Councillor for St Ives East, said: “Cornwall Council have supported culture and creativity in Cornwall by investing in this amazing new exhibition space and the refurbishment of the original building.  This project has created fantastic new facilities for education and will enable Tate St Ives to show permanently works from their St Ives Modernist collections.”

The new exhibition space will be launched with shows by Rebecca Warren and a Modern Art and St Ives display. Entry is free for members. More information about Tate St Ives can be found on the Tate website.

Cornwall Council and The Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) to offer a joint customer Hub in Helston Library

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Thu, 12/10/2017 - 09:38

Residents in Helston will soon be able to access a range of public services in one place following the co-location of a Library and Information Service and the Job Centre Plus, including a new children’s library and a JobCentre Plus service.

Redevelopment of the Helston Library building will make more efficient use of the existing building footprint, increasing floorspace by 10%. This means the architects have been able to create a new children’s library, a new interview room and space for the Department of Work and Pension’s Jobcentre Plus service. In addition the Cornwall Council Information Services, which is currently provided at Isaac House, will also be included within the library building.

Bringing other services in to the current Cornwall Council owned building helps reduce costs, increases use of the building and brings in more potential library users, ensuring long-term sustainability.

Co-locating these services not only improves the range of services on offer for people to access in one place, it means the library has been protected.  While other authorities are closing libraries, the move means the library can be protected and remain open.

In addition to the current library service opening hours residents will also benefit from new self-service access from 9am to 5pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays providing extended customer access to the library services in Helston. Customers will be able to use the library, borrow and return items using the self-service kiosks and use the public access computers on these two additional days each week. 

Adam Birchall, Cornwall Council Head of Property, said: “Offering all of these services from a single location will improve the level of customer access and the customer experience.  Reconfiguration means we’ve been able to make much more effective use of public space and the existing building, which is a key part of our work to maximise the way we use public building across Cornwall, as well as ensuring Council delivers value for money.”

Edwina Hannaford, Cornwall Council Portfolio Holder for Neighbourhoods, said: “I would like to thank the Department of Work and Pensions for working with us on this exciting project. The new joint customer Hub will allow local residents, library users and job seekers to access a wide range of essential public sector services at one convenient location and I am sure this will be a great asset for the town.”

John Martin, Cornwall Councillor for Helston South said: “This new customer hub will be of great benefit to the town and I’m sure the new children’s library will prove to be a popular new addition to the Library.”

Commenting on the relocation of the jobcentre to the Helston Library, Nathan Kendall, Jobcentre Plus Manager for Helston, said: “This is excellent news for jobseekers. The move to the new centre will give access to a wide range of key services under one roof.  Advice on benefits and help for jobseekers will be available in this new customer hub, while giving local taxpayers value for money.”

During the period of the refurbishment works at the library, a temporary library service will operate from Issac House, on Tyacke Road, Helston, over the usual library hours. The temporary service will be provided for a period of approximately 12 weeks during the refurbishment works. 

The refurbishment works have begun and are expected to be completed in November.

More information about the Helston Library and Information Service can be found on the Cornwall Council Libraries webpage.

People with a local connection to Goonhavern, Truro will soon be able to bid on new Cornwall Council homes for rent.

The 23 new homes at Marshfield Close will be available for bidding online at Cornwall Homechoice from Thursday 12 October.

Built by Kier and managed by Cornwall Housing, the homes were funded by Cornwall Council as part of its new build programme, which aims to see 1,000 council homes delivered over 4 years across Cornwall.

The 23 new homes provide a mix of accommodation options for single people through to families and include:

  • 10 x 2 bedroom houses - maximum 4 persons
  • 6 x 3 bedroom houses - maximum 5 persons
  • 2 x 3 bedroom houses - maximum 6 persons
  • 1 x 4 bedroom house - maximum 7 persons

Cornwall Housing’s Director of Operations Nick Cross recently visited the site to see how the development was coming along. He said: “We are really pleased that these 23 new homes will soon be ready, and ahead of schedule, for the first tenants to move in and call home.

“A lot of work has gone into the design and build, with energy efficiency one of the key considerations to help tackle the issue of fuel poverty.”

Andrew Mitchell, Cornwall Council’s cabinet member for Homes said,“These new homes are another positive example of Cornwall Council and Cornwall Housing working together to build and acquire quality homes for the people of Cornwall.

“There is a high demand for social housing across the Cornwall and I am pleased that these new homes will go some way in providing affordable accommodation for those with a local connection to the area.”

The new street name was chosen from a number of suggestions submitted by the public.

Construction on the new homes commenced in January 2017 and has a completion date for the first week in December 2017. Though it is expected that that the homes will now be ready 2 weeks ahead of schedule.
