We are delighted to announce that ‘CAST rehabilitation phase two’ has been awarded £705,374 from the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund. Cornwall Council has been chosen by Government as a Lead Authority for the fund and is responsible for monitoring the progress of projects funded through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
Funding received from the Shared Prosperity Fund will enable ‘CAST rehabilitation phase two’ including the replacement of roofs, the installation of solar panels, and essential renovations to the public areas and access routes to the building. It will also support the development of CAST’s work with schools and young people, the provision of free creative activities for children and families, and some key public events in 2023 and 2024.
CAST has appointed Alison Bunning a respected conservation architect and Trevor Humphreys MRICS, a project manager and quantity surveyor who specialises in challenging grant-aided projects in the cultural sector in the South West.
Further details will be added to this webpage as the project progresses.
