As leaders of the UK’s green industrial revolution, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly are rich in natural and human capital thanks to our unique renewable energy resources, mineral deposits, and space and data capabilities.
Through our role in the G7 Summit, bid to become UK City of Culture and as one of the first local authorities to declare a climate emergency, we’ve already started to evolve the narrative around our extraordinary region. Our ambition is to make CIoS carbon-neutral by 2030, and be a region that delivers opportunities for its communities and businesses, showcases our drive to make our home a place where everyone can start well, live well and age well.
Despite being a key player in the UK’s sustainable economic future, Cornwall’s location and the remoteness of the Isles of Scilly still pose challenges that impact on quality of life as well as skills, development and career progression.
But with a total of £132m of the UK’s Shared Prosperity Fund to spend locally, we have a huge opportunity from April 2022 to March 2025 to bring about ‘Good Growth’ and make our economy more equal, more resilient and more prosperous.
