Council Projects

Boscawen Road

For a full update download the most recent report by clicking here.

[Perranzabuloe Parish Council announced in August 2018 that it had acquired for the community the former Lloyds Bank premises at 8 Boscawen Road, Perranporth. This landmark site has served the local community since it was first opened as a bank in 1917, and occupies a central and accessible location in the heart of Perranporth village.

Following the closure of the bank in 2017, the Parish Council worked hard to acquire the freehold, with the intention that the site may continue to be put to use as an asset for the benefit and amenity of the local population. With the purchase of the site complete, attention has turned over recent months to how this site can be an integral part of the Parish Council’s strategy to safeguard and improve the
provision of important public services within the parish, many of which are under threat or being cut by central government and the local unitary authority, Cornwall Council. Also to fit into wider schemes to improve the recreation and community facilities within the parish.]

 

Bolenna Park

[Bolenna Park is a highly valued recreation space within Perranporth, as a place for people of all ages to enjoy the great outdoors. It is used by the community and visitors to traverse between areas of the village, to sit and relax, exercise, sunbathe, and for children and families to play together.

The park is owned and maintained by Perranzabuloe Parish Council, currently falling under the responsibility of its Amenities Working Group.The open grassed area, which is bounded by mature trees and bushes, is unique in the village
as a traditional parkland space. There is also hard standing basketball court, a football goal, two small play areas for children of different ages, a mostly asphalt pathway linking St Georges Hill to Perrancoombe, a small number of parking spaces, and a derelict stone building. Adjacent to the park is Perranporth Tennis Club.]

 

Skate Park

In May 2002 Perranzabuloe Parish Council held a public consultation day in the Memorial Hall to seek residents’ views on the future development of Perranporth village and identify current problems. Under the heading “Leisure”, people commonly asked for the provision of more multipurpose, structural recreational facilities, with a “Sports Centre” and a “Skateboard Park” being the most common responses.

Between 2009 and 2012, a Parish Plan was researched and published with the involvement of the Parish Council entitled “Community Plan for the Parish of Perranzabuloe 2013 to 2018”. This further explored these themes, with significant responses being gathered from the public and summarised within the document. Young people were asked to give examples of the sorts of facilities they thought were

lacking for people in the parish, and what they would like to see changed or improved.

The most popular answers were:

  • Youth club/drop-in centre
  • Skate park
  • Sports centre

It was therefore agreed by the Parish Council to bring forward proposals for the building of a skate park in Perranporth, and it has been the policy of the Parish Council ever since to provide this facility.
