Community Open Event to help the search for an appropriate purchaser of Redruth’s Passmore Edwards building

A special community event will be held in St Andrew’s Church Hall, Clinton Road, Redruth on Saturday 14 December from 1.30pm to 3.30pm.

The aim is to highlight the forthcoming sale of the neighbouring Passmore Edwards building, and the widely-held wish for it to continue as a community asset if the right purchaser and future use can be found.

Saturday’s drop-in event will allow informal conversation, and the swapping of ideas for the future of this grand old building.    

Jonny Alford, Cornwall Council Property Services, said: “Cornwall Council and Redruth Town Council are holding this Community Open Event for potential users or groups to discuss any interest they may have in purchasing the building. It will provide an opportunity to ask Council representatives any questions, maybe even to build alliances with other community groups where a collective freehold offer may be more attractive.”

The Library, now managed by Redruth Town Council, is relocating in early 2020 to the newly refurbished Cornwall Studies Library in Alma Place, now named the Cornwall Centre, placing it nearer Redruth town centre and allowing increased opening hours.

The agent’s details for 2 to 4 Clinton Road, Redruth, describe it as ‘An imposing former library with many character features, centrally located within Redruth. The impressive building is unlisted and located on a 0.32 acre site providing private parking for approximately 15 vehicles to the rear.’

Come along to the open event if you would like to register your interest in the building as well as have the opportunity to talk to representatives from the Council.
