Individuals and organisations in and around Truro who are interested in running activities and events in a new community hall planned for Langarth Garden Village are being asked for feedback to ensure it is designed to meet local needs.  

A short online survey is asking them about the types of programmes and activities they want to provide or attend.  The survey will capture feedback that can be used to ensure that the proposed new community hall provides a welcoming space and is designed to accommodate a variety of group activities and community events. 

This could include wellbeing and exercise classes, health clinics, children’s birthday parties, soft play for little ones, wedding receptions/private parties, film and music nights, and much more. 

Cornwall Council is working with a specialist community leisure company to liaise with individuals and local community organisations to determine the facilities, equipment, and storage requirements for the new building. 

SJ SLC is asking those who may be interested in using the new community hall for events and activities to fill out a short online survey with information about what they would like to run at the venue, as well as identifying their facility and equipment needs.   

The survey is open until Friday 1 March 2024.

SJ SLC will then use the feedback to assist the Council in identifying a sustainable and deliverable mix of facilities to shape the detailed design of the new community hall. 

Cllr Olly Monk, Cornwall Council portfolio holder for housing said:

“Before an application for planning permission is submitted by the Langarth Garden Village project team later this year, we want to involve those who will be putting on events and activities so that the new facility meets their needs. It will be part of a wide range of community assets, including new parks and urban squares, green spaces, water features, cycle and walking routes, cultural facilities as well as community buildings.”
