Falmouth Harbour

Destination Development

Lead Organisation: Falmouth Harbour Commissioners 

Investment Priority: Supporting Local Business 

Fund: Business, Enterprise and R&D Infrastructure

SPF awarded: £98,989

Location: Falmouth

SPF  funding will allow Falmouth Harbour to look in detail at how they can provide a real focus for the current marine industry and future blue technologies right in the centre of the historic town of Falmouth.  They will look at providing enhanced facilities with the possibilities of a new marina and berthing for small offshore vessels and superyachts and space for major sailing events alongside better facilities for local people.

 

This project recognises the health and wellbeing benefits of the ocean and they want to make the water in Falmouth more accessible, better connecting the town to the sea. They also aim to get people closer to marine events and facilities with options for public access. The project also aims to redefine and promote Falmouth as a destination for visitors and offshore operators.

 

Falmouth Harbour will be working with Falmouth Marine School on future skills development particularly around offshore technology skills, to support renewables and wind power. With the aim for this to give Falmouth Harbour a clear plan for next 10-15 years and put it in a great place where they can capture opportunities for local residents of Falmouth and Cornwall more broadly.

 

Miles Carden, Falmouth Harbour CEO, says, “It is incredible news to have received this critical support from the Shared Prosperity Fund as a part of the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Good Growth Fund to fund “The Falmouth Harbour – Destination Development Feasibility Study”.
