Construction of Parish Office and Community Hub

Construction of Parish Office and Community Hub

Lead Organisation: Portreath Parish Council

Investment Priority: Community and Place

Fund: CLUP

SPF awarded: £198,600

Location: Portreath

Portreath Parish Council will rejuvenate part of the village, through the creation of a multifunction Community Hub.

This project will see the demolition of a redundant toilet block, which is situated on Beach Road, Portreath and positioned in front of the other buildings in the same area (Parish Council toilets and a Café).  The new purposeful building will be repositioned to be set back in line with the other buildings and the public footpath will be widened in the process so that it is fully accessible and safer for all users.

The building will be a multifunctional Community Hub, for the Parish Council to use as an Office and storage room, as well as having a small community meeting room. The building will have an ‘open door policy’ to ensure the parish council is much more accessible to parishioners and visitors. There will be two laptops available for use by local parishioners, together with support access online services, in a supportive environment.

It will also be a place to celebrate and promote Portreath Parish Heritage and local Tourism to visitors using historical photographs of the area and information to tell the story of the village and parishes rich history. There will be an information sheet including a map of the village and including all the local businesses, to encourage tourists to stay local. Local groups and businesses will be encouraged to use the small meeting room free of charge.

The building will be energy efficient by being fully insulated, have an air source heat pump and solar panels on the roof. The energy usage of the building can be reviewed, to mitigate both the carbon footprint and the operational costs.
