Redruth Brewery represents a 4.6acre derelict site on the edge of Redruth town centre and within the heart of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site. With the site being located on the edge of the town and on a key gateway route, it is, and has been for many years, been a priority for intervention and regeneration.
Shared Prosperity Funding will be used to refine preliminary work to ensure a high quality, deliverable scheme can be brought forward. This will involve the development of an outline business case and a detailed masterplan for the site; with both focusing on finding a commercially and financially viable proposal for the land.
Part of the site (outside the 4.6acre area) has already been regenerated through the Cornwall Council-led creation of Kresen Kernow, home to the world’s largest collection of documents, books, maps, and photographs related to Cornwall’s history. The priority is to now finalise the regeneration of the remainder of the site, by bringing forward a high-quality scheme that supports the ambitions for Redruth town centre and complements Kresen Kernow.
