Portreath Parish Council

Creating a Parish Office & Community Hub

Lead Organisation: Portreath Parish Council

Investment Priority: Community and Place

Fund: Community Capacity Fund

SPF awarded: £2725.00

Location: Portreath

Portreath (meaning Sandy Cove) is a civil parish, village and fishing port on the north coast of Cornwall within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), The village is situated along both sides of a stream valley, with its focal point being the harbour and beach.

The Parish has received approval to demolish a redundant toilet block with the intention of replacing it with a parish office and a fully accessible community hub. The development will provide a suitable workplace for the parish clerk and serve as a central gathering place for the various active groups within the parish to collaborate and coordinate their activities. The new facility will proudly showcase the rich heritage of the Parish, deeper instilling a sense of local pride and appreciation for the area’s history.

The removal of the toilet block will also create wider pavement access to the adjacent public toilets. This will greatly enhance convenience for both residents and visitors, The demolition of this structure will not only eliminate an unsightly feature but also contribute to the overall aesthetic appeal of the village.

In order to set the project in motion the Parish will make use of the Community Capacity Fund to enlist the services of a Structural Engineer and Quantity Surveyor. These skilled professionals will have a vital part to play in carrying out essential calculations, compiling a detailed list of materials required, and conducting surveys pertaining to land contamination and mining.  The completion of these essential works will play a pivotal role in the project’s execution, greatly supporting the Parish’s chances of securing additional funding for the subsequent phase of the plan
