Helston Town Band is famous for leading the Flora Day celebrations through the town every May. They are a well-established brass band with a strong heritage, and they have a long history of generations of the same family playing in the band.

They have applied to the Community Capacity Fund to commission a feasibility study to explore options for their band room building which is in need of restoration. The study will look at four different options for a new band room. The building is in a conservation area so consideration will need to be given to its historic importance when reviewing the options available.

Once the chosen option has been identified, the necessary plans, costings and associated surveys and reports will be commissioned to prepare for planning permission and building regulations submissions.

Community engagement events will be included in the feasibility study work identifying potential community uses for the building during the day when it is not being used by the band. Increased community use will help to generate income which will help towards the running costs of the building.

Building designs/plans will incorporate environmental measures, making it as carbon neutral as possible. Acoustics will be designed to accommodate the different uses of the building. The project will future proof the band room, providing a home for Helston Town Band for generations to come.
