Regenerating Spaces to support economic growth

This Spring we’re looking for projects that will develop or refurbish new work spaces here in Coast to Coast, Spaces that would make an ideal hot-desking facility or a small industrial unit that might provide space for local businesses.

Research has suggested that there is ongoing demand for communal co-working facilities, fuelled by the prevalence of entrepreneurs, in the region. Our Programme Coordinator Nolwenn Baot states that, “there are benefits from such facilities, for example increased productivity over homeworking, the ability to exchange ideas, network, gain business referrals, and of course minimise overheads”.

Projects that will restore natural/heritage buildings and offer them an economically viable future are also sought. These might take the form of a community or historic building that could be given a new lease of life as an innovative workspace.

“What will really excite us are projects that, with a little bit of investment, will create new economic assets in this area,” adds Nolwenn.

Any submissions will need to meet a series of criteria and help deliver outputs; details of these can be found at https://communityledcornwall.co.uk/calls/call-1/
