Hundreds turn out to have their say on A39 Atlantic Highway proposals

Proposals to reroute the A39 around Camelford and revitalise the town have been welcomed by the majority of North Cornwall residents who attended the recent Council exhibitions.

Around 600 people took the time to view the Council’s initial designs and talk to the project team about the plans during events at Camelford Hall and St Johns Church in Delabole.

Couldn't make it to one of the events? There's still time to view the designs and have your say

The Council’s proposals to build a new 4.5km section of the A39 to the north of Camelford aim to tackle congestion and improve air quality, as well as provide a catalyst for improving Camelford town centre and the local economy.

Councillor Geoff Brown, Cornwall Council cabinet portfolio holder for transport, said the vast majority of those who viewed the plans were satisfied that this is the right approach.

“The exhibitions generated a lot of interest and the general consensus was that the new route would mark a new start for Camelford,” he said. 

“Many people raised valid issues based on their local knowledge and all these points were noted and will be considered by our design engineers as they further develop the plans. I would like to thank all those who came along to the sessions – we appreciate you taking the time to give us your views.” 

If you were unable to make it to one of the events, you can have your say by viewing the designs on our webpage and completing the survey – for more information visit  

The consultation closes on Thursday 16 April.
