The St Austell and China Clay Eco-communities is a proposal to
regenerate the clay country through new villages, job creation and
improved infrastructure. It is part of a nation-wide group of Eco
Towns supported by central government. In Cornwall, the
Eco-communities will be delivered by the private sector, led by
Eco-bos. Cornwall Council has two
distinct roles in respect of this. As the planning authority, we
will decide upon planning applications. Our other role is to
deliver a programme of projects funded by central government to ensure
the Eco-communities achieve real benefits for the area. On these
pages you will find information about how we work with the
Eco-communities and the projects we are delivering.
The St Austell and Clay Country
Eco-communities proposal is one of four nationally recognised Eco
Town developments established by the Labour Government to support
new settlements demonstrating low carbon living.
