Green Infrastructure for Growth

Cornwall Council is investing in urban green spaces across seven Cornish towns as part of the Green Infrastructure for Growth (GI4G) project. In total the project will receive £2,800,500 of funding from the European Regional Development Fund.

By December 2019, £3.5 million will have been spent on public recreational areas, roadside verges and old churchyards to make them better places for people and for wildlife.

The environmental funding will create nature-rich habitat across an area equivalent to 35 rugby pitches.

Please take a look at our GI4G Infographic for more information.

Seven Cornish towns have been identified to receive investment through GI4G. 

Work is underway in Hayle, Pool and Redruth already.  Treskbery Fields, Trenoweth Estate open space in Redruth and Bay View Terrace and Millpond Gardens in Hayle were completed earlier this year. 

The GI4G team has created concept designs and run consultation events in all seven towns.
